New York City based producer-songwriter Erica Glyn is preparing for the release of her highly anticipated new music video IN SILENCE. The haunting, kaleidoscopic tune comes to life in this vividly visual masterpiece with the creative help of director Seth Blaustein and makeup artist Anna Fugate. Erica previously teamed up with Seth for the creation of her super-imaginative “I’m Not Here” video (http://youtu.be/7xjmH-3McyQ). The full ‘In Silence’ video is due out November 15, 2012, but catch a sneak peek in the stunning trailer here: http://youtu.be/1Xo-ZEtvOcU. Erica is currently in London, narrowly escaping the wrath of Hurricane Sandy, for a handful of performance dates that will be webcast live (check dates below for more info).
“This New York based singer/songwriter/producer is among the few who could restore your faith in organized sound. She is a heck of a talent. Her songs reverberate with the sincerity akin to the great artists of days gone by. There is no foolery or bag of tricks. No bright colored wigs or sugarcoated lollipop pop. No freak show and yes–no gowns made of raw, bloody chunks of porterhouse steaks–just music in its purest and most beautiful form.” – POPTIMES MAGAZINE
“The only track on STATIC in which I wrote and performed all of the parts, In Silence delves inward, pushing the boundaries of the id-ego relationships within ourselves, pushing near and around the brink of sanity, the place where everything one experiences is so hyper-alert, hype-aware, hyper-sensitive – it is the balancing act one performs at the precipice between your carnal-self and your intellectual-self, the inner fight that occurs when pushed to the edge – not really knowing how to lean in either direction, remaining still for fear of what will happen if you don’t.”- Erica Glyn
Erica Glyn has been playing music as long as she can remember, previously known as the vocalist/guitarist for Brooklyn experimental rock outfit For Feather. She exploded back into the music scene with a new sound in her latest solo effort, STATIC. The new album was written, recorded and produced solely by Erica, with contributions from a collection of well-respected musicians- including some special mixes grom Grammy winning engineer Chris Lord-Alge (James Brown, Prince, Joe Cocker, Chacka Khan, Carly Simon, Smashing Pumpkins). She produced a unique and intriguing sound, mixing elements of trip-hop, rocktronica and a splash of psychedelic rock with her captivating vocals and commanding lyrics. Erica’s vampy, garage-pop lures listeners into “a world of the unusual and strange”, from the albums opening sultry and hypnotic track, “Commonplace”, to the warped, dream-like “Beautiful”. Each song from STATIC takes you deeper into the fantastical world of Erica Glyn, a landscape of pulsating beats, surging synthesizers, elegantly volcanic melodies, and dark, poetic lyrics.
Erica began her career working with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Bob Power, on albums by India.Arie, The Roots, Ozomatli, Citizen Cope and Meshell Ndegeocello among others. Erica has opened for Jonathan Richman of the Modern Lovers in Istanbul, and played alongside the likes of St. Vincent and Citizen Cope. Recently she has worked with Joel Hamilton (Elvis Costello, Tom Waits, Sparklehorse) on projects including Candice Anitra, Watussi and Blakroc. In addition, Erica has collaborated with the likes of Blair Wells (Q-tip, Parts and Labor), John Ginty (Citizen Cope, Jewel) and Jesse Krakow (Craig Wedron, Shudder To Think, Julee Cruise). As an engineer, she has worked with a variety of notable personalities that include Hillary Clinton, Richard Clarke (Audie Award), Stephen Colbert, Frank McCourt (Audie Award), Joan Rivers, Uma Thurman, Dr. Oz, Mariane Pearl (Audie Award), Valerie Plame, Michael J. Fox (Audie Award) and John Lithgow (Audie Award), the latter two projects both garnering Grammy nominations.
