Erika Wennerstrom is best known as the lead singer and songwriter of Heartless Bastards. After spending the past decade touring with her band, Heartless Bastards, and pushing their unique brand of rock ‘n’ roll into new shapes over five acclaimed albums Erika is taking some time off to explore new directions and work on her upcoming solo album.

Heartless Bastards’ have had a successful past few years and all are excited to explore new avenues for a bit while they take a much needed break. After achieving multi-format rock radio airplay across the land, high-profile placements on a wide range of highly rated network programming, rave reviews in the likes of Rolling Stone, NPR, Entertainment Weekly, and show-stopping performances on such TV shows as NBC’s Friday Night Lights, CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman, TBS’ Conan, and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live! the timing could not feel more right for Erika to explore new avenues for her writing and creativity.

Christopher Gold

Christopher Gold was born in Owensboro, Kentucky. The son of a bluegrass musician, he didn’t have to go far to find a passion and available instruction on the mandolin, banjo, and guitar. It wasn’t long before he started writing his own songs and playing them in public. He now splits his time between the folk and bluegrass from his childhood and the punk music from his adolescence, playing and releasing albums under his own name, fronting a blues-punk band called The Dirty Rotten So & So’s, and occasionally being fortunate enough to join in on other peoples songs, including The Wandering Sons, S.S. Web, RedHawks, Holly & Plastic and just about anybody else who asks. He also curates the annual “Dirty Rotten Toy Drive”, a live music event in Appleton that collects money and Christmas gifts for abused children.
