I've known Erica Blinn since she was a wee lass working behind the counter at Ace in the Hole Records with Ricki C. She has blossomed into a exceptional talent and more importantly, a bad ass rock n roller. Her debut full length record "Lovers in the Dust" is set for release in January. In the meantime, she has already released three seperate singles all with videos and played hundreds of gigs all over the USA. You might have caught her opening up for Watershed some dates on the "Brick and Mortar" tour.
Anyway, I'm telling you her new record is a stone cold classic. And I'm not just saying that because I co-wrote some of the songs or musical maestros like Andy Harrison, Terry Anderson/OAK Team and Joe Peppercorn contributed their talents as well, but it doesn't hurt. Did I mention that Mike Landolt produced the record? And Ricki C has been known to work her merch table? She is the real deal.
The project has hit that sticky stage where all the hard work is basically done but she is looking to raise a little $$ to push it over the final hump. I appeal to all Watershed fans and fans of good music in general to visit her Indiegopop campaign to get an advance copy of the CD and some other groovy perks. Thanking you in advance, Colin.
