The Connecticut-native Erica Buettner has graced this country with her talent and presence, via Paris . She has lived in Coimbra and Leiria before settling down in Lisbon and collaborated in those years with quite a handful of quality local acts (Frankie Chavez, Beautify Junkyards, and Selma Uamusse, among others).

Her exquisite brand of folk music with beautifully crafted lyrics can be heard on her sophomore album The Book Of Waves of 2018, including this “Train To Porto”
