Erben Perez (Music)

Artist bio/statement:

Born January 23, 1962 in Perth Amboy, NJ, Erben Perez was destined to play music. He grew up fascinated with all genres, in an environment that could only breed a legend. By the age of 13, he had been captivated with learning how to play guitar. Erben’s father, who couldn’t afford one at the time, made a promise, and when his first credit card arrived in the mail made true on it. However, not knowing the difference between a bass and a guitar, his father surprised him with a green hollow body bass instead. Erben learned quickly idolizing Jaco Pastorius and other New York bassists, dedicating all of his time to playing in neighborhood Rock, Funk, and Salsa bands. Following service in the military and medical school, Erben who at this point was the hottest bassist in the New York Latin scene, started working with upcoming Salsa singer Marc Anthony. 25 years later, Erben is still by Marc’s side having played for millions across the world, on numerous platinum albums, with no plans of stopping.

In addition to Marc Anthony, Erben has credits touring, writing, and recording with artists such as; Jennifer Lopez, Willie Colón, Romeo Santos, Talking Buddha, DLG, Pitbull, Brenda K Starr, Domingo Quinonez, Kamani Marley, and Bruce Springsteen.

Today, Erben resides in Clermont, Florida, where in addition to touring with Marc Anthony, now runs his own record label, Trista Records.
