E.R.A.'s smokey voice is a double-edged sword. One side, as if dipped in a
finely aged, old-world claret, immediately transports the listener to a
winding, cobble-stoned street; Exactly the sort of place where forbidden
love flourishes. The other-side is laced with vodka-Red Bull -- if it cuts
you in the club, you won't stop dancing 'til the sun comes up. - Engine Gallery


Toronto singer-songwriter Era hails from the Ukraine but is a true citizen of the world. You hear it in her music, which fuses genres – jazz, blues, pop – as seamlessly as it does cultural influences. Her melodies and lyrics exquisitely blend east, west, timeliness and timelessness.

Born in the Ukraine, Era spent her childhood and adolescence training at a number of prestigious European ballet academies. As a young adult, she danced her way across Europe and North America, performing with some of the world’s most elite ballet companies. Through her dancing, Era developed an outstanding musicality and a formidable command of the stage.

After settling in Toronto, Era chose a new channel for her creativity. A singer from an early age, she began writing and recording her own songs. Very quickly, it became clear that this was a singer with something to say.

Era’s international adventures have endowed her with a unique, expansive, characteristically modern perspective that infuses each of her songs. Neither here nor there, they are somehow all places – exactly wherever you are.
