A thoughtful, and original blues Album
on 8 February 2013
I knew nothing of Erja Lyytinen until I saw her live early in 2013. She is a great live performer and the real deal in terms of slide guitar. Is her sound new? certainly not as its blues guitar music but don't be put off because within the blues genre it is original. Erja has a deceptively laid back and melodic slide guitar style. Add in original compositions and a distinctive soft voice and you have a winning combination.
I have listened to lots of blues so its really great to find an artist that stands out as Erja does. Don't expect to be blown away by this album. The album hangs together well and is varied in terms of both emotion and speed. It is more of a slow burner and it grows on you the more you listen.
Great to hear a G&L/tele rather than just strat sounds for a change too-5 stars from me!
