ERJA LYYTINEN — UK Dates + Album Announced

The Finnish vocalist, virtuoso guitarist, songwriter and European Blues Award winner ERJA LYYTINEN returns to the UK in March 2019.

Her new twelve-date tour will include shows in Brighton (March 18), Sheffield (March 21), Glasgow (March 23), London (March 26) and Birmingham (March 28). Tickets for all dates are available now via FULL LIST below video.

Erja is set to release her new studio album in 2019 via her own label Tuohi Records. The new album features guest performances from the the King of Slydeco Sonny Landreth and Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson). The album will include Erja’s two new singles “Without You” and “Another World” that were digitally released in 2018.

We described her most recent album, “Stolen Hearts” [2017] as “awe-inspiring and magnificent…” and her live-show as: “a wholly intoxicating spectacle… Filled with drama and passion…

[‘Another World’] has a lot of meanings,” says Erja about the single & famed for its 80s vibe and wah-solo. “First of all, it is a love story. It´s a dream about loving somebody in another dimension, because it´s not possible in this world. I have always loved sci-fi movies, so I wanted to add something extra-terrestrial and supernatural to the video, too.”

It also points out how important it is for us to be aware of environmental aspects. Do we need to find another planet someday to be able to breathe? All this has been wrapped together by these two worlds happening at the same time, and how in the end it is important that we as lovers, and as a human race, could survive.

Erja adds: “We added big guitars on the track and it has a guitar solo inspired of blues rock – guitarists such as Eric Gales and Jimi Hendrix. The melodic 80s rock music was also a source of inspiration while writing the song. Heart is one of my all-time favorite rock bands, and when performing their hit song “Alone” on Stars Stars on National TV last year, it kind of brought me back to that music style.
