Eric Slick was living in Asheville, North Carolina, when he began working on the songs that would become his first solo album Palisades.
Also while in Asheville, he began a journey into Jungian dream therapy and Transcendental Meditation. One night he dreamt that he met a man on a beach wearing a gold robe around his shoulders and holding a staff, and the man told him, "Keep singing."
Upon sharing this with his therapist, she asked if she could give him a tarot card reading and ended up drawing the Three of Wands, which is a card depicting a man with a gold robe around his shoulders holding a staff. It's also a card that suggests you should continue pursuing your true nature. At this point it was clear that Eric had to keep singing. So he finished his record, donned a gold robe for the cover, put the Three of Wands on the back of his album and, now, on his signature Fuzz guitar strap.
This strap was printed by our friends at Grand Palace Silkscreen on a cream cotton canvas, and features the soft cotton backing, vintage-style hardware, and quality leather end tabs you've grown to love from us.
