ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Erika Kulnys is a singer-songwriter who is not scared to take risks. Erika's background in Nova Scotian folk music, her education in classical music, world music, poetry, and an abiding concern for social issues combine to create an original folk idiom that defies easy categorization and yields carefully crafted songs robust with passion. A broad range of songwriting influences include Joni Mitchell, Tori Amos, Leonard Cohen, Bessie Smith, Patty Griffin and Ferron.

Erika's songs range from sultry love songs to lyrics tackling issues such as neo-colonialism and homophobia and she has the gift of writing meaningful songs that are more personally poetic than overtly political. In the story-telling folk tradition, Erika writes about real human experiences and the fierce conviction in her voice can move the stiffest of hearts.

Erika grew up in Nova Scotia singing in choirs and then went on to study music composition and creative writing at the United World College (NM), Oberlin College and Conservatory (OH), and won a 2005-6 Watson Fellowship to participate in groups working for social change through music in Ireland, England, Costa Rica, Venezuela, Brazil, and India. Erika has collaborated with such renowned artists as Ferron, Lucie Blue Tremblay, and Scott MacMillan, has opened for Deirdre McCalla, Emm Gryner, Rose Vaughan, and has shared festival stages with Dar Williams, Richie Havens, Guy Davis, Josh Ritter, Richard Thompson (Oberlin Folk Festival) and Ani diFranco (Michigan Womyn's Music Festival).

"By possessing the ingenious intellect and activist zeal of Ani DiFranco combined with the poetic skepticism of Leonard Cohen, Kulnys is artfully cementing her place in the history books of unsung artistic heroes of our time...Hurricane tampers with the ballad-aesthetic of early Tori Amos, as her achingly honest, yet beautifully created craftsmanship is as vast as the North Atlantic Ocean. Spin the cheekiness of Dolly Parton with the overt sexuality of Kinnie Starr, then dash the toe-tapping rhythms of Newfoundland’s Colleen Power to conjure up a sense of her multi-dimensional musical talents.” - Shannon Webb-Campbell for Filly.ca
