Erica Dawkins, formerly known as E., is an Atlanta based emerging singer-songwriter, who is pioneering a new alternative R&B sound inspired by Neo-Soul, alternative rock, and jazz music.
She just released her new single Flowers & Cigarettes. Produced by Ezell Brown.
The song features solid melodies, stellar vocals, smooth guitar work, catchy sounds, and memorable hooks.
Erica writes with authenticity. Her lyrics capture her thoughts. Every line has a special meaning.
The singer-songwriter often sings about pain, heartache, and the journey of finding herself after being married at a young age. Essentially her message is being “Young, Dumb, and Figuring it out.” while understanding, not every decision we make in life is perfect, but we always have a chance to get things right as long as we are alive.
“Everything that happened to me was just fuel for my art—for my lyrics. It gave me something to sing about, which is what I know I was supposed to be doing all along. I’ve grown so much in the past year and some months. Now I can put the lessons I’ve learned in life into my music, comments Erica.
Dawkinds speaks the language of art. Flowers & Cigarettes deserves to be heard. It’s a modern masterpiece, in my opinion.
