Texas has a way of changing people. Something about the wide open spaces and rugged individualism bends your perspective to make sense of the endless horizon. For Heartless Bastards founding member and lead vocalist Erika Wennerstrom, Texas has had a profound impact on her music.

Erika Wennerstrom has been on tour behind her new solo album Sweet Unknown and she stopped by Studio 1A to play us some of the new music before playing a final show in Austin.
