NORLANDER is the keyboardist for the ROCKET SCIENTISTS. He rather concentrates on atmospheric, sometimes surprisingly heavy sounds, which are borne by his dominating keyboards (Moog, Hammond organ, Mellotron, Fender Rhodes...) in an impressive fashion. The music has some echoes of work of AYREON and full of breaks close to EMERSON, LAKE & PALMER, TRACE or SOCIAL TENSION with classical, jazzy, medieval and even hard accents.
ERIK NORLANDER has created some of the most enchanting rock music in recent years appearing on over 25 albums since 1993 with his diva spouse LANA LANE, his band ROCKET SCIENTISTS, his own solo albums and guest appearances on CDs by MARK BOALS, AYREON, STAR ONE, NEIL CITRON and many others. Erik's evocative synthesizer technique is reminiscent of the legendary RICK WAKEMAN, KEITH EMERSON and JON LORD while still very unique and forward-moving in its own right.
