Lixuiod (Naked & Acoustic)
The former "accidental" lead singer of pop trio Life Like Sophie, Erika Krumbeck suffered a two-year stint in the bowels of Nashville before returning to her hometown of Seattle in 2007. Here she returned to her songwriting roots, pairing simple textural piano with lighthearted melodies and moody lyrics. After a three-year break while studying Naturopathic Medicine at Bastyr University, Erika has finally returned to the music scene to release her songs on two albums: Lixuiod, and Lixuiod (naked & acoustic). Lixuiod ("LIX whee odd") is a collection of songs written and recorded over a 2-year period. The songs are heavily manipulated, as Erika and guests added dissonant guitar, distorted organ, midi flute and ambient noise. Lixuiod (naked & acoustic) features the songs in their original form, as folk-pop piano pieces (appropriate for moms, kids and lovers of "normal" music).
