Erica Bramham is a critically acclaimed vocalist, guitarist and composer from Melbourne, Australia. Poetic,
inventive and uniquely personal, her work crosses the boundaries between jazz, traditional folk and
experimental art music, showcasing her finesse as a lyricist and a captivating performance style that blends
song with spoken word and extended vocal technique.
In 2016 Bramham released her debut album, Twelve Moons, a song cycle that blurred the boundaries
between folk and improvised music. The album was named alongside David Bowie and Vijay Iyer as one of
the top ten releases of the year on All About Jazz, with critic Phil Barnes calling it "a fine record of forward
looking modern vocal jazz that shows a way to make interesting, lyrically inventive improvised music” and
signalling Bramham as a talent to watch.
In January 2017 Erica embarked on The Song-Chain Project, an ambitious creative mission to compose,
record and share a new piece of music every day for 365 days
