Southgate House Revival, 111 E 6th St, Newport, KY
Free, 21+, 10pm
Erica Blinn is proud to announce that she will be performing at the Southgate House Revival in Newport, KY on September 19th. This show will be a series of single release parties for Erica’s new single ‘Whiskey Kisses” due out on September 10th.
Columbus Alive says, “Though she identifies her sound as blues rock, Erica Blinn’s rough-and-tumble rock tunes carry a whiff of Bonnie Raitt, with a saucy attitude and melodic twang that veers near to Nashville-ready country.” Blinn constructs American rock songs one rusty melody at a time. She forces Mid-Western 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 tunes that everyone can stand up for and be proud of. 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 featuring Ruf Records artist Devon Allman. “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 feeling songs as well as a couple of just plain fun ones that reach towards a more poppy sound.”
Over the last year, Erica shared stages with names like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Royal Southern Brotherhood & Devon Allman just to name a fewSeptember 2013 finds Blinn touring to promote the first single, Whiskey Kisses, off recently completed LP Lovers In The Dust due out in January 2014.. Burning gas in the tank and scorching crowds on a nightly basis, Blinn and her raucous backing band The Handsome Machine will be hitting up stages all across the USA.
The new single “Whiskey Kisses” will be heard everywhere September 10th.
