His music can be found on Spotify, ReverbNation, and iTunes.

Erskin was a basketball stand-out who earned a scholarship to East Tennessee State University. He then went on to earn an M.Div. at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Ft. Worth, Texas. He currently resides in Nashville, Tenn., with his wife Kelli and their children. Erskin’s heart for orphaned, abandoned, and vulnerable children led him to become an advocate for the non-profit organization Holt International.
