Let It Go
'Melodic poetry embraced by a groove; words that make you think with beats that make you move.' This is the self-described sound of soul artist, Erica Streat, who is indeed a true triple threat...singer, songwriter, and producer. This Virginia native is ready to make her mark in the music industry with her new collection of works, Let It Go. 'To me Let It Go is much bigger than a title,' Erica says of her latest release. 'It represents the transitions I've made in my life over the past couple years. There were a lot of things in my life I had to let go. From the corporate job I thought I wanted to the straight hair I thought I wanted-my whole mindset changed.' This project is very personal. Erica used her singing, songwriting, and production gifts to create every song. Furthermore, she engineered the project herself, recording and mixing each track in her own studio. When asked what inspires her to create, Erica states, 'Life...my stories are true. I don't just sit down and write a song. Things happen in my life and around me that inspire me to capture these events. I'm just like a photographer who keeps his camera nearby waiting for the perfect shot. My studio has become my camera. My music is the photograph.'
