New Release from Erja Lyytinen "Dreamland Blues"

With her international solo debut at Ruf Records "Dreamland Blues", young singer/guitarist Erja Lyytinen proves she's a force to be reckoned with in the predominantly male bastion of the blues.

No doubt about it: Erja Lyytinen has the talent and looks to put Finland on the international blues map. Born into a musical family in the small town of Kuopio, she integrates jazz, folk and even pop elements into her bluesy mix. Lyytinen's outstanding slide guitar playing has earned her the nickname "the Bonnie Raitt of Finland" and led to festival appearances alongside Koko Taylor, Marcia Ball and Bonnie Raitt herself. Now, this impressive young lady is poised to break out to an even bigger audience.
