Erika's femme fatale image, seductive and sultry music, and the empowering messages of her lyrics make her stand out. Her music inspires you to stand up for yourself and take control of who you are and what you believe in. Erika's 1940's film noir femme fatale inspired look is elegant, confident, powerful, sexy, smart but with a more modern aggressive edge and soulful flair. Erika Fatale is THE modern femme fatale: She knows who she is, what she wants and how to get it. Her vocals are powerful and her music is really cool!
Check out this song, which she co-wrote with major producer and songwriter Peter Stengaard (main producer for Diane Warren).
