Welcome to Roadcase!! Erika Wennerstrom has been performing in her band Heartless Bastards for close to 20 years now has recently released a gorgeous new album, A Beautiful Life, which she co-produced with Kevin Ratterman, in which confronts the challenges and nuances of the day within a truly innovative sonic landscape. A native of Ohio, Erika now calls Austin, TX home, and she talks about her early days booking her own shows, working hard and playing every gig she could -- which ultimately resulted in a chance meeting with Patrick Carney of The Black Keys and signing with Fat Possum Records! Erika has been defiant in staying true to herself and considers herself "a songwriter that performs live." She has played countless shows and her tours with Drive-By Truckers are legendary. Although the band was forced to cancel their January 2022 European dates due to Covid, she will be hitting the road again in February and April with Flaming Lips -- a unique combination of artistry for sure! So hop on aboard the Roadcase bus and learn more about this thoughtful and one-of-a-kind artist, Erika Wennerstrom.

Erika Wennerstrom, the lead of Heartless Bastards, released her debut solo album, “Sweet Unknown,” in March of 2018 on Partisan Records.Wennerstrom’s solo songs are built on the same blues and folk foundations as her songs with the Bastards, but her flirtations with both psychedelic sounds and pop sensibilities are both ambitious and clear on “Sweet Unknown.” Although the break with the band was mutual, Wennerstrom seems to be basking in newfound freedom, singing “I walk around this crowded town / I had to re-find my way / You know I couldn't remain the same / What it is, what it is, what it is / Don't fight the change within” on her song “Good to Be Alone.”Set List:Extraordinary LoveTwisted Highway- interview -Staring Out the WindowLetting GoWennerstrom also performed a cover of Townes Van Zandt's "Be Here to Love Me" that is available on the WCPO Lounge Acts YouTube channel.--Erika Wennerstrom's second WCPO Lounge Acts session was recorded on June 14, 2019 in the WCPO Digital Lounge in Cincinnati, OH.WCPO Lounge Acts features intimate in-studio performances and interviews from outstanding musical artists.Mixed by Brian Niesz.Hosted by Emmalee Smith.See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
