The new live album Live In London is out now!
(European release June 8th 2015)
In October of 2014, fresh off her most acclaimed recording to date, Finnish blues standout Erja Lyytinen rolled into London’s iconic 100 Club for an evening of live music. At her side, a crack band featuring long-time musical partner Davide Floreno, bassist Roger Inniss and drummer Miri Miettinen. After three years as a touring unit, the band was on full form. The groove, artistry and undeniable power of their performance on that famed stage has been captured on the CD/ DVD twin-pack called Live in London.
With a colorful history that goes back to 1942, the 100 Club is considered the oldest independent music venue in the world. During that time, a who’s who of blues and rock’n’roll legends including Muddy Waters, B.B. King, The Who and The Clash have entertained audiences there. It’s also played host to “secret shows” by the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, Metallica and others. For Lyytinen, however, a pair of concerts by American blues legend Son House – recorded at the 100 Club in the summer of 1970 and later released as Delta Blues and Spirituals – stand out above the rest. “He’s one of my big favorites, and when I first heard that recording years back, I didn’t expect I would someday be on the same stage as he had been!”
