Erica Blinn w/ Mellidrop
Erica Blinn constructs American rock songs one earnest melody at a time. She forces Midwestern air through beat-up harmonicas and hammers out honest words that stretch and twist through her tunes. She bends the rules of the blues and knocks down the walls of pop music to create blue collar music that everyone can stand up for and be proud of.
Although it was her second time working with producer/engineer Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, Blues Traveler, OAR) as well as guitarist Andy Harrison, this record came with a lot of ‘firsts.’ Erica is joined on record by her backing band The Handsome Machine, and guests Ruf Records artist Devon Allman and First Of Three Records artist Aaron Lee Tasjan. “I like to think of this album as having a little something for everybody,” says Blinn, “It definitely has the rockers but it also has some more intimate songs as well as a couple of just plain fun ones that reach towards a more pop sound.”
Over the last year, Blinn shared stages with names like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Royal Southern Brotherhood & Devon Allman just to name a few. 2014 finds Blinn and her raucous backing band The Handsome Machine touring to support their new album Lovers In The Dust. Burning gas in the tank and scorching crowds on a nightly basis on stages all across the USA.
