Description: Take one part blues traditionalist, blend it with a forward-thinking music academy graduate, serve with a side order of skill and a garnish of Nordic beauty. What have you got? Singer/guitarist Erja Lyytinen, a.k.a. "the Finnish slide goddess" (The Blues Magazine).
Since first setting foot in a recording studio 15 years ago, Erja Lyytinen has become a bona fide star in her homeland and a celebrated fixture on the international music scene. She has recorded nine studio albums in locations as diverse as Helsinki, Memphis and Clarksdale, Mississippi, earning numerous awards and honors along the way.
Lyytinen is equally at home in traditional and modern blues and has never been afraid to incorporate styles like jazz, pop and soul. Her 2014 Elmore James tribute album The Sky Is Crying was universally hailed as her best and bluesiest to date. It was named Best European Blues Album and Best Tribute Album of 2014 by Canada's Blues Underground Network and also placed in the top three international albums of 2014 as chosen by writers at Britain's Blues Matters.
Live in London, a sizzling live set of Elmore James covers and original material released a year later, culminated with Erja being voted the #1 international solo artist by Blues Matters and Artist of the Year at the Finnish Blues Awards.
