George Sonny Landreth? - they are some of the best slide guitar playing business,
& now comes standby for the sizzling ERJA LYYTINEN and her band.
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 stepping foot in a recording studio nearly 15 years ago, Erja Lyytinen has become a bona fide star in her homeland and a celebrated fixture on the international music scene.
She’s recorded 9 albums in places as diverse as Helsinki, Memphis and Clarksdale, Mississippi, earning numerous awards and honours along the way. She feels equally at home playing traditional and modern blues, but has never been afraid to incorporate different styles, including jazz, pop and soul, into her song writing.
Canada's Blues Underground Network chose her 2014 CD 'The Sky Is Crying' as Best European Blues Album and Best Tribute Album of 2014. It was also placed in the top three international albums of by Blues Matters magazine, who also honoured Erja as the #2 international solo artist.
