Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen

 

Erika Kulnys, Award-winning Canadian Songwriter Seeks House Concerts in UK, Germany, Denmark

Dear friends at The European House Concert Hub, 

Happy 2019! I am new here and seeking to connect with hosts in the UK, Ireland, Germany and Denmark. I will be in the UK and Germany in late May and June, and in Ireland, Germany, Denmark, and potentially surrounding countries in September. I play a mix of ballads and higher energy songs with stories and improvised stage banter interspersed. Here is a review of a house concert in NY: 

"She'll get where she wants to go. She is SO talented! We left exhilarated and refreshed, with new ideas for what we can do. That real raw authenticity rings a deep bell in the listener's heart. The world needs that voice, to help us remember who we are."
Below you will find more info on me and my music. Please contact me at erika@erikakulnys.com if you are interested in hosting me! Hope to see you later this year :)
Sincerely,
Erika Kulnys

Press Quotes

"Sometimes an artist possesses a voice that reaches out and seduces your senses, Erika Kulnys has one of those voices. Her album, ‘Rise Up’ is overflowing with that vocal seduction – and it’s a temptation that’s all to easy to give way to. Let’s be honest here, there’s no way you can hear that voice without falling under its spell. The depths of engrossing story-telling that pervade every track on this album are so strong it’s almost possible to reach out and touch their intensity.

Erika’s vocal expression is matched by her ability to write lyrics that are equally capable of making you feel warm and fuzzy, rip at your heart, or make you take stock and think (and think hard). The lusciousness of ‘I’m On Fire’, the subtle endearment of ‘Love Me In The Morning’, the entreaty to ‘Keep Your Feet Moving’ or the personal reflection of ‘Carolina’ – each make their presence felt in no uncertain terms. Being honest once more, there’s not a track on this album that sounds like a ‘filler’ – each poetic lyric and catching melody brings home a narrative of power and presence.

 

For me, the stand out song among so much excellence is the charismatic dignity of the title track ‘Rise Up’ – to find out if you agree visit Erika’s website and buy the album: erikakulnys.com" 

-Folkwords, UK

 

"...this Halifax native is running on all cylinders and drawing from a broad range of musical genres to create a pastiche of songs that speak with passion, with humor and above all, with love. 

-Sam Schreiber, New York indie reviewer

 

“By possessing the ingenious intellect and activist zeal of Ani DiFranco combined with the poetic skepticism of Leonard Cohen, Kulnys is artfully cementing her place in the history books of artistic heroes of our time.” 

 – Shannon Webb-Campbell, Canadian Music Journalist

 

"The Music Room in Halifax was packed to overflowing last Friday night for the cd launch of Hurricane by the amazing Erika Kulnys. Erika and her group of talented musicians wowed us for two and a half hours of music, most of it written by Erika. This Halifax daughter is destined to be our next Sarah McLachlan."

By Terry Paul Choyce, DJ, CDKU

 

“Erika Kulnys Rise Up Self Release

 

The possessor of a quite extraordinary voice, Rise Up, the seventh studio album by Kulnys, finds the Nova Scotia resident in fine form reflecting on matters worldly as well as closer to home.

 

The album’s twelve tracks, all penned by Kulnys, are both personal (Love Me In The Morning, Carolina, Love’s Not Wasted) and political (Rise Up, Roaring For A Revolution), the common bond being the quality of the story telling and that heart stirring  vocal that dips and soars effortlessly throughout.

The aforementioned Roaring For A Revolution, the cream of the crop, bears a healthy relation to Anais Mitchell in style and indeed delivery. Kulnys powerful and soaring vocal is the winner here without doubt, bringing the poignant lyrics and melody to life.

Equally comfortable singing the blues on I’m On Fire or folk ballads such as Angel On The Road and Honeysuckle the album as a whole reinforces the versatility and rounded talent of an artist well worth checking out. "

-Lonesome Highway, Ireland

 

"There were twelve amazing songs presented and each was unique and important. The topics we heard addressed concerns such as racist policing, homophobia, climate issues and political commitment among other issues. 

Wanda and I chose the song Rise Up created by Erika Kulnys. This song stood out as it addressed the commitment each of us can make to create a better world. The stirring lyrics touched on many social issues and asks the listener – “where were you?” After hearing Erika’s performance, the question in my mind became “where ARE you?” “Rise Up” is an anthem for empowering each of us to stand up and make our voices heard. Erika’s voice and words serve to inspire and connect people to join in the many struggles still to be fought."

-Ron Olesko, DJ, WFDU, NJ, published in Sing Out Magazine 2016
