SXSW: On The Road With Erika Wennerstrom 14

Maiden solo voyages can be daunting, but when helmed by Heartless Bastards’ frontwoman, Erika Wennerstrom, sparks fly and magic happens. Soul-searching in the jungles of South America and Big Bend serve as the muse for Wennerstrom’s debut solo album – ‘Sweet Unknown’ – and in it she dazzles like the stars in the West Texas sky.

Art&Seek and  KXT 91.7 FM met up with the elegant and powerful singer at Allens Boots during SXSW. While there, she took over an aisle of the boots store to perform the song “Extraordinary Love” for our On The Road crew.

The On the Road series is a joint venture between KXT 91.7 FM and Art & Seek, where we meet musicians on-location and bring great performances online. From soundcheck sessions to back alleys to rooftops, these musicians play stripped-down versions of their latest hits or beloved classics.
