ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
What happens when you stir a pot of soulful melodies with a funky acoustic guitar, put it over the flame of some deep latin rhythms and serve it with intimate vocals? You get "Tinted Glass," Erika Luckett's debut solo album.

Smokey vocals over a deeply grooving guitar. Stories and melodies that keep speaking to you long after the CD has stopped playing. It's like Joni Mitchell got together with Tom Jobim and decided to spend a month in Cuba.

Erika was born in Mexico, raised in Venezuela and Brazil, played in the Paris subways as a teenager and has spent the last nine years touring in the jazz circuit with her world fusion band, Wild Mango. After three albums with the band, she decided to venture out on her own and released "Tinted Glass" in February 2000.

Make It Anew
Erika Luckett is, in the most exact sense, a creative, not a reproductive. On the course of her dazzling evolution, she seldom repeats herself nor shows any attempts to settle down to a "signature style," which is often safe and convenient for artists. The main reason Erika doesn't follow this beaten path is her openness; it is not about her often mentioned receptivity; it is her perception of life and art as an open project. In retrospect, this first album expresses the open nature of this artist the most. It is fresh, both in sound and in spirit, and its reflecting beauty is capable of emphasizing any listner's heart. Yet, I insist here that, even in comparison of her following albums, "Tinted Glass" is full of unforgettable beauty. Anyone who appreciate her music should not overlook this for the sake of "update." This is how everything started. This first precious searching step gently encourages us to open our hearts, make our worlds anew.

Outstanding solo debut from this jewel of an artist
Erika Luckett's unique musical vision has fused genres for years,
and this latest release showcases her songwriting talents, tasty
and soulful vocals, and her awesome guitar chops. Her songs blend
latin rhythms, american roots, and penetrating lyrics. I really
love her song "Pennsylvania Avenue", which is especially pertinent
during this election year.
Buy It! and send her an e-mail asking when the next one is coming out...

An achingly beautiful album
From the opening notes of Erika Luckett's warm honeyed voice singing "Fire", to the classically influenced beauty of "Despedida", each song on this cd carries the theme of hope in its heart. When the exquisite lyrics of "Van Gogh Sky" brush the edges of crumbled love, the timbre of Erika's voice promises redemption. And the languishing rhythms of "Carry Me" coax dreams of desire from its listeners.
The love that went into making Tinted Glass is evident on every track, and Erika's years of experience as a composer bring a depth and intelligence to her music that few others can match. Simply put, I love this album, and you will too. Highly recommended!

Great singer/songwriter continues to develop
I've been enjoying Erika's singing and writing since 1995, and it's a huge pleasure for me to see how well her first solo CD has come out. The other reviewers closely echo my own feelings, so I'll simply say that if you value passion, intelligence, observation, melody and major-league songwriting craftsmanship, then this CD is for you. And yes, as someone else said, ask Erika when her next album's coming out!

Smooth sounds...great songwriting!!!
A wonderful CD that takes you on a "Journey" of it's own..."let the journey be your destination". The smooth, hot and sultry "Fire" seduces you into the rest of the CD where you meet "Evangelina", hear sardonic and topical observations in "Penn. Ave.", and float to the beauty of "Despedida". Tinted Glass is a great initial showcase of Erika intellect, composing, and songwriting talents...and I'll be looking forward to the next CD!
