About me:

Erich Tran

 

History:

Started playing guitar at age 14 because of my fascination with KISS. It was1990 and I was living in

San Francisco, CA. Within that next year I saw my first concert featuring Death Angel & Forbidden at the

Warfield. Hard rock and thrash metal was definitely in my blood.

By age 15, I was living in small town Iowa & traveling to nearby Omaha, NE for concerts and music stores

etc. That’s where I saw my first ESP MII Custom with the famous Tiananmen Square “man in front of the

tank” image. It was new and I couldn’t afford it at the time, but over the next 2 years I saw it end

up 3  different music stores. By the time I was 17 and came across it again, I had to have it. I sold all my

guitars, amp, and pooled all the money I had to purchase it. Even without an amp for months I was so excited

to finally have an ESP. That was the beginning of my 20+ year relationship with ESP guitars!

 

Currently:

  • Debut “TRANZIG” album released in 2018 - (solo, heavy metal, instrumental). Wrote, recorded, and performed all the instrumentation with guest musician appearances.
