Erika Lamon is a soulful folk-pop singer-songwriter based out of Kingston, Ontario. Her first steps onto the music scene were taken when she was accepted into the Franco-Ontarian artist residency, Ontario Pop (now Rond Point), in 2013. Since then, her music has taken her all the way from North America’s largest Francophone music festival, to the more intimate settings of the festivals, pubs and cafés of her hometown.
In 2016, she released her first single, “Strangers Know”, a moody and shimmering pop song infused with Dido and Jewel undertones. Her self-titled debut EP, released in October 2017, was met with the enthusiasm and appreciation of listeners. While many at the release party were singing along to their personal favourites, some were discovering Erika’s artistry for the first time, and leaving that night with the feeling that there were “stages and shows much bigger” in Erika’s future.
