Dark ambient soundscapes and industrial rhythms threaded together by passionate, reflective vocals.


Abrasions is J Ericson.

Raised in the San Francisco bay area, J began writing and recording music alone in his home studio. After several improvised ambient releases, he began to take the project in a new direction. Crafting otherwordly soundscapes, industrial rhythms, and fragile guitar orchestrations threaded together by his heartrenderingly personal lyrics, Abrasions became a cohesive, indepedent medium of emotional exploration.

This coelesced into his cathartic, genre bending second album, Memorial, which was released on November 29th, 2009.


Memorial, Nearly Lovers, Three EP, Shades of Summer
