Born to two professional violists, Erik's classical training began at a young age and culminated in a bachelor's degree at the Royal College of Music in Stockholm and graduate studies under the tutelage of Professor Henryk Kowalski. As the youngest permanent member of the first violin section in the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra, Erik toured internationally and played under renowned conductors including Alan Gilbert, Kurt Masur, Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Michael Tilson Thomas.

Because of his great passion for chamber music, Erik helped to begin the Vamlingbo String Quartet and the Vamlingbo Chamber Music Festival, has given masterclass performances for Gidon Kremer, the Altenberg Trio and Paul Robertson (Medici String Quartet), and founded one of Europe's most active session string orchestras. Furthermore, Erik's playing can be heard on the albums of artists like Grammy Award-winner Lady Gaga, Ane Brun and Nina Persson (The Cardigans), all of whom commissioned Erik to score original string arrangements.
