Erica Falls was exposed to a variety of musical genres at an early age by her parents in her hometown New Orleans. The unique sounds, sights and smells within that home helped shape Erica and her unique soulful sound.
Erica’s growth in music was stimulated and influenced by singers such as Roberta Flack, Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Nina Simone, Sarah Vaughn, Whitney Houston and of course her mother whose angelic soprano voice filled their 9th ward home. On stage her live shows are an unmatched spontaneous force that brings an exciting mix of fashion, sassiness, and vintage soul that keeps the crowds on their feet the entire show. “The stage is where I feed all of humanity a big ole pot of musical file gumbo and make sure they keep coming back for seconds,” says Falls.
Erica has recorded and performed with the likes of Grammy Award Winning Allen Toussaint, Joe Sample, Dr. John, Sting, No Doubt, Jennifer Hudson and John Fogerty. On her debut CD “ME, MYSELF AND MUSIC” her singing, arrangements, and songwriting are on full artic display. The 2-time nominated Best Female Vocalist by Offbeat Magazine was also featured in Lee Daniels The Butler where she was hand picked by Lee Daniels himself for the lead singing role.
