Erja Lyytinen announces show in Sheffield to promote fourth live album - here's how to get tickets
Erja will be performing at The Greystones, Sheffield on November 14 in support of her new album Diamonds On The Road – Live 2023.
The album includes the single You Talk Dirty which the queen of the slide guitar originally released 20 years ago on her first recording then gave it a new lease of life on her last studio album. Erja said: “It is my favourite live track. I get to play loud guitar, using my Whammy up and down a whole step-up in the most critical places, to create this heavy doom effect,” she said.
Over the years, Erja’s sound has evolved dramatically. Beginning with her traditional blues roots, Lyytinen has been simultaneously pushing forward with a hard rock-orientated style of play whilst always keeping that blues sound at the core of everything she does.
Erja attributes some of those changes to her equipment and repertoire of trusty axes. She said: “Since my last live recording, my live guitar arsenal has grown quite a bit. I have five to six guitars, from Strats and Teles to custom-made guitars, on stage with me. It´s quite cool to dig out the different characteristics of each guitar.”
