Hank Erwin’s story is as incredible as his storytelling ability. After five years as a merchant marine he logged over 1,000 days at sea, traveled over 200,000 nautical miles, was US Coast Guard certified as an Able Bodied Seaman, and delivered roughly 10 million tons of cargo. He made more money than he’d ever seen, blew more money than he’d ever seen, and lost all control of his life off the boat which included any hopes of a music career. He stepped off of the SS Wilfred Sykes on January 10, 2014, and he never went back. He had no way of knowing that day that he would spend most of the following year on tour, or that he’d spend the year after that fighting cancer…and touring, or that he’d become the first member of his family to survive cancer. Life is funny. Hank was born in Newport, Kentucky and spent a lot of time on the road with his dad, who drove an 18 wheeler. He bought Hank his first guitar and died of cancer before he ever heard him sing. Hank is on the mend, and he won’t stop pursuing his music, but he has a helluva lot of amazing stories and life lessons to share when he plays his guitar and sings. His gentle, but strong soul echoes in his melodies.
