SoundDiego Sessions vol. 3 – Erika Davies

We do a lot of talking about the amazing Erika Davies around these parts, but sometimes words just aren’t enough. So, for all you visual learners out there, we had Miss Davies and her band come into the NBC studios to record some songs for us. Watch the video for “Robot Girl” above, then go see her at the Whistle Stop tonight, where she’ll be opening for The Mashtis.

Davies is currently at work on her full-length debut, Galaxy Lakes, and it’s going to be a great one. Unfortunately, the process has stalled due to a lack of funding, but there is something you can do to help.

The swanky vocalist has launched a Kickstarter page to help raise money to complete the album. She has until February 18 to get $2000 in pledges, and she needs your help to do it. Head over to the page and donate whatever you can. Depending on the amount pledged, backers will receive any of a variety of rewards that includes an autographed copy of Galaxy Lakes, a signed 8×11 tintype photo print of the cover art, and a handwritten, signed lyric book.

All in all, it’s a great way to help one of San Diego’s finest musicians achieve their dream. And, on a selfish note, we all get a fantastic album out of it. See? Giving truly is its own reward.
