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 songs. The same two hands that have dug graves and revved Harleys on the highway, strum away on an old Fender Telecaster Deluxe that she's armed with onstage. Blinn bends the rules of blues and knocks down the walls of pop to create her own brand of blue collar rock-n-roll music that everyone can stand up for and be proud of.

2014 saw Blinn release Lovers In The Dust on Curry House Records. The album features the handiwork of seasoned producer/engineer Mike Landolt (Maroon 5, Blues Traveler, O.A.R.). Along with her then backing band The Handsome Machine, the disc was rounded out with guest appearances by Aaron Lee Tasjan, Devon Allman, Andy Harrison (Howlin' Maggie) and Angela Perley (Angela Perley & The Howlin' Moons). “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 songs as well as a couple of just plain fun ones that reach towards a more pop sound.” Her song "Sexy Mess" spent 8 straight days on the airwaves of Columbus, OH's CD102.5FM in their "Top 5 Most Requested Songs of the Day" playlist, including 3 straight days at #1. Another tune titled "Lovers in the Dust" was featured on the soundtrack for the full-length feature film Black Windows (Wanderlust Films/Devil Town Productions/Gravitas Ventures).

The following 2 years saw Blinn and her band tour nationally, playing over 150+ shows a year everywhere from New York to Wyoming and back. She's shared the stage with names including Blues Traveler, The Family Stone, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Nicki Bluhm & The Gramblers, Royal Southern Brotherhood, Devon Allman, The Clarks and Jim Lauderdale to name a few. 

She has since relocated to Nashville, TN to continue her musical pursuits and record a new record. Blinn's new release (currently untitled) will see the light of day in fall of 2017 and she plans to continue to tour relentlessly.
