As the frontwoman and primary songwriter for Heartless Bastards, Erika Wennerstrom never thought about going solo. But after five albums spanning over a decade, Wennerstrom and her band decided to take a break.

This hiatus offered up the opportunity for some self-exploration. For an artist, it’s only natural that a spiritual journey inspires creativity, and for Wennerstrom, that journey led to the songs that became her solo debut, Sweet Unknown.

She stopped by Studio A to play us a few of these songs, and talk with us about the deep soul searching that led her to her first solo outing.
