Erika as a Harpist
“The Road goes ever on and on, down from the door where it began…”
Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Hi! I'm Erika. Thank you so much for visiting my website. I'd like to give you a chance to get to know me a little, and soon I hope that I can get to know you, too.
I'm a coffee-loving, fantasy and sci-fi geek who loves and lives with cats and bunnies, and enjoys baking, hiking and video games. In addition to being a harpist, I also have a side business creating fiber art (crocheting, knitting, and spinning wool), all while raising my wonderful son.
From the first moment I laid hands on a harp, it was like what I imagine love at first sight to be like. BOOM! The harp and I knew each other. Instant soul mates. We complete each other, and I can’t even remember how I ever lived without one.
I love creating and connecting with others through music. I try to infuse my music with my love of storytelling. I strive to portray the human experience through music, in a way that is authentic and raw, and emotive. Music to me is the epitome of the human soul. It goes beyond human language, straight to the heart. It speaks truth as no other art can.
Music is for everyone. It is inclusive, and all spaces for it should also be. Music transcends any and all differences between us. It unifies and connects us. I believe that the role of a musician is that of a Heart-Speaker.
I look forward to sharing my music with you.
Thank you for being a part of this journey with me...
