On June 19 Half Wild will welcome Seattle-based musician and activist Erika Lundahl, an innovative 12-string guitar player and classically trained vocalist. She employs her distinctive "tapping" guitar style to create an enveloping, heart-centered musical space. Her poetic, often autobiographical lyrics employ poignant and powerful imagery to deal with contemporary social issues. Her recent album 'Brambles', released under the name Animals of Grace, is the compilation of 7 songs and is an introspective gaze into the heart during a time of climate crisis.
Her songs are “pure as nature with glossy harmonies and elegant melodies….Every song on Brambles is a highlight but if push came to shove, I would choose the beautiful opener, “Bartered Time.” The song is serene and slightly lonesome at times, feeling like the musical equivalent to waking to an early, damp autumn morning in a chilly remote cabin. Under the comforting instrumentation, poignant and powerful imagery flourishes in the track’s lyrics…” – Keith Hedad, Record Crates United
She is currently on tour with percussionist and vocalist Doug Indrick, whose combination of live drums, vocal harmonies, and occasional electronic pads evoke a spirit of wilderness and wonder for the Pacific Northwest.
