The Story
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.

The Plan

  • Tour: Extensive schedule planned in support of the release with initial focus on key Ohio & surrounding states (Kentucky, Tennessee, Missouri, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Michigan) markets and then expanding through the South.

  • Radio: Aggressive campaign targeting Independent, College, Public, and Internet radio as well as Podcasts, and XM/Sirius.
