Erika Wennerstrom’s name might be new to some, but many will know her voice as the focal point of the popular Cincinnati rock band Heartless Bastards. With her first proper solo effort, Wennerstrom’s distinctly gritty, soulful voice leads a deeper, more personal look at her life and experiences, while still offering those huge, epic roots and blues-inflected hooks we’ve come to love from her work with Heartless Bastards.

Sweet Unknown, the debut solo album by Erika Wennerstrom, is available now from Partisan Records.
