Blues artist Erja Lyytinen is currently on a lengthy European tour, with 12 shows in the UK, 10 in Germany and one in Luxembourg set to take place during the next five weeks. She is touring in support of her new live album, Live in London, which was recorded at London’s 100 Club in October 2014.
The tour comes at a great time, as Live in London was chosen as the best live album of 2015 and Lyytinen was chosen as the solo artist of the year by renowned UK-based magazine Blues Matters.
Lyytinen’s latest studio album, The Sky is Crying, was released in 2014. Canada’s Blues Underground Network chose The Sky Is Crying as Best European Blues Album and Best Tribute Album of 2014. It also placed in the top three international albums of 2014 as chosen by writers at Britain’s Blues Matters, who also honored Erja as the #2 international solo artist.
