Erick “Jesus” Coomes

Erick Coomes has demonstrated that he is a quintessential music

producer. After studying under trusted hit-makers such as Quincy Jones, Dr Dre, Kanye West, DJ

Quik and Tedy Riley working as a writer, Co- producer and

Bass/Guitarist, he formed his own production company. Erick’s expressive

musical manifestation exhibits a solid, authoritative groove and an

immense tone.  Erick has developed phenomenal technique that he uses

sparingly to promote his concept that the sound of the whole group is

paramount to any individual’s performance.

Erick Coomes was born in Huntington Beach, California on June 14, 1976

into a musical family.  His father is a record producer, bandleader and

singer/songwriter and his older brother Tyler (Tycoon)

has focused his talent on Producing, the drum set and drum programming.

Therefore, Erick was constantly involved with music as a child and

virtually grew up in a studio. At a remarkably young age, Erick began experimenting

with vocals, drums and the piano.  His parents recognized that he displayed

a depth of creativity that is rare for such a young individual and they

educated and encouraged his musicality.  Erick’s musical interests

continued to expand and by ten years old he began formal saxophone lessons.

Two years later, he acquired a strong fascination with the guitar and began

taking lessons on the guitar as well. Erick’s musical foundation was

particularly impressive and his enthusiasm for music never ceased to

thrive…

But it wasn’t until he started playing the bass at fifteen years old

that he had truly found his favorite instrument.  Erick had such

distinct promise on the bass that John Patitucci, the world-renowned

bass virtuoso, accepted him as a private student.  Erick continued his

education by attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music where

he excelled in all his classes and graduated in 1998 with a Bachelors

Degree in Music Business and Song-writing.
