about

Erona Los Angeles, California

Music has never been a stranger to Erona. It began as a choir solo with 300 back up singers at age of 10 and she has not stopped since. Though influenced by artists like Billie Holiday, Janis Ian, Jeff Buckley, and Paula Cole, music, to her, was no longer about telling someone else's story, but rather living her own. A soulful song or a deep blues groove allow her to share her stories this far. ... more

Track Name: Beat Red
Kept these lips only slightly parted
Waiting for the right heart to catch my breath
Curtained off any full flash exposure
Bright lights and promises only made me shy away, shy away

I wanna lay where your head touches down
Speak a thousand words without a sound
Your eyes guide me in
To that dark forgotten back room
With your hands on my skin

Warm blue runs through these frostbitten veins
Calming the storm while searching for air
Autumn tree eyes losing color by day
Seek out a perfect sunset through a camera’s frame, it’s all the same

I wanna lay where your head touches down
Speak a thousand words without a sound
Your eyes guide me in
To that dark forgotten back room
With your hands on my skin

Break me, Break me
Break me open
Tear this stone heart from my chest
And make it beat red again
Beat red, Beat red
Make it beat red again
Track Name: Blink
I would give it all up
I keep telling myself I would
Throw it all away to sit at a fast bar, sip wine and soak you in.
I am a silly girl, a silly girl
And you’re the most beautiful,
Beautiful man I know

I could have walked all night
As long as you were next to me
Peered into your eyes as the street lamps hovered above
But I watched you walk away, fractured cunning pride
A hundred questions attached to every blink of my welled up eyes

Blink, blink
Blink, blink

Just to feel it again,
How you move me
Like parchment so old, seething for one more, long drink of your words
I’m a silly girl, a silly girl
Because I will wait for it
Wait for it without fail, I’ll fail

I could have walked all night
As long as you were next to me
Peered into your eyes as the street lamps hovered above
But I watched you walk away, fractured cunning pride
A hundred questions attached to every blink of my welled up eyes

Blink, blink
Blink, blink
Track Name: Scattered Roots
There is a place I know, not too far away
A few days by car, 5 hours by plane
Where 60 step blocks and the maze underground
Churn one foot, then another, no silence, no sound

I offer these scattered roots, arms open to the sky
I planted myself here, a cure for the nagging why
Walk ‘til these hollow streets finally echo my name
Map out this foreign land, but home just the same

Book-ended bridge walks, alone with my pride
Missed the water beneath me until I noticed my stride
With four feet I trusted, I never looked down
It’s 2 that I’m stuck with, 2 and I’ll drown

I offer these scattered roots, arms open to the sky
I planted myself here, a cure for the nagging why
Walk ‘til these hollow streets finally echo my name
Map out this foreign land, but home just the same

Keep walking, keep walking, keep walking, no sleep
Keep walking, keep walking, keep walking, you’ll see
I’ll walk. I’ll walk.

I offer these scattered roots, arms open to the sky
I planted myself here, a cure for the nagging why
Walk ‘til these hollow streets finally echo my name
Map out this foreign land, but home just the same
Track Name: The Dreamers State
I’ll leave you to your Brooklyn bedroom
Singing sweet songs of a childhood lost
And find you close in a dreamers state
Knock, knock, look up, keys drop

If the ceiling had eyes I could see to the skies
Through the only up that’s looking down
My voice to your ears, your words to my eyes
Thousands of miles through this rooftop crown

Running through old thorns and roses
Skipping simple like the chords once played
We’re keeping time by stepping up steep stairs
3 flights, 3 hours, don’t let me wake

If the ceiling had eyes I could see to the skies
Through the only up that’s looking down
My voice to your ears, your words to my eyes
Thousands of miles through this rooftop crown

I’ll beg the moonlight as she peeks her way in
Lull me to sleep, take me way down deep
Where I am she and you are us, it, and him

If the ceiling had eyes I could see to the skies
Through the only up that’s looking down
My voice to your ears, your words to my eyes
Thousands of miles through this rooftop crown

I’ll leave you to your Brooklyn bedroom
And I’ll dream you……tonight
Track Name: Real to Reel
At one time you could open, the door to me
With one smile, one glance one kiss
Now it’s just sad song excuses, foot in the mouth offerings
Amputated jealousy, buried alive and left
to burn the scorn within me

But I had to be you to see you and ended up seeing me
Now it all plays on, all day long
Across my closed eyelid movie screen

It’s a new leaf, but the same old tree that was offered me
Decline, cut ties, lock lipped
Now these short strings of longing cut off in hopes of clarity
Dangle freely once again
And I won’t bait the wound to heal what was expected

But I had to be you to see you and ended up seeing me
Now it all plays on, all day long
Across my closed eyelid movie screen

So I’ll let you go, wipe the slate clean
It was you, you who told me so, in permanent ink
A bad idea it was, I know
I lost my head and made you my home
A bad idea it was, I know
I lost my head and made you my home
