Erik Blicker began studying guitar at the age of 11 and began teaching music at age 16. He opened a teaching studio and music store at age 18. After receiving his bachelor’s in music from the University of Miami he would go on to earn his Master’s Degree from Aaron Copeland School of Music at Queens College studying with Jazz great Jimmy Heath.
Blicker began scoring for small film and TV projects and playing in New York City bands, which paved the way for larger scale projects. He founded G&E Music in 1997 with his musical collaborator Glenn Schloss and began a run of TV series scoring projects which included, VH1’s Top 100 shows, Extreme History with Roger Daltry, and ESPN’s Sports Center. These projects would lead to films scores by Blicker and Schloss such as “The Nine Lives of Marion Barry” for HBO. Currently, with over 75 projects to his name, Blicker has firmly established himself as a strong voice in the world of TV and film scoring. Founding Flavorlab with partners Brian Quill and Glenn Schloss in 2004 has lead to a number of complete audio packages for TV, Film and the internet.
He is also a Protools master, audio mixing fanatic, and Macintosh guru. He takes most pride in his family and is grateful for and inspired by his parents Fred and Jeanne, his wife Jennifer, son Ryan and daughter Ella.
