Growing up in Madison, Wisconsin, Erik showed immediate knowledge of rhythm; with a deep interest in music, he had begun training himself to drum by the age of three. In his adolescent years, he’d developed a rare proficiency in a wide array of musical styles. He also displayed a deep interest in songwriting and past icons of the arts – studying their individual styles and mannerisms.


Taking a year off to hone his identity and skills in arts and songwriting, he signed with Photogenics LA in early October of 2018; his first job being for Gucci’ Spring Summer 2020 fashion show in Milan. With hopes to pursue his passion in the androgyny and glam of high beauty and fashion, Erik Sathrum is an eccentric and promising new face to the world of art and modeling.
