Born and raised in Mount Airy North Carolina, Ericca Latza is a country singer-songwriter pursuing her music career in Nashville, Tennessee. Music and writing played a huge role in her young life. Most days you could find her after school behind a piano at lessons or in her room filling up notebooks with stories. She quickly developed a passion for singing when her parents enrolled her in classical voice lessons. It wasn't until the age of 12 that she realized she could combine her love of all three. One night her dad showed her how to play four chords on his acoustic Applause, and she hasn't looked back since. Though Mount Airy (better known as "Mayberry") was her home, Ericca moved to Wilmington NC in 2016. There, she spent two years developing herself as a performer. She played on many stages that are local favorites such as The Soundhouse, Goodfellas, and Hurricane Alley's. While growing as a solo artist, she also launched a band that played on stages across North Carolina. In January 2019, Ericca made the move to Nashville with the hopes of learning to become a well rounded songwriter and a professional in the industry. It was't long before both her songs and voice began to draw attention. Ericca became a signed artist with MC1 Nashville/Sony Orchard in July 2019. She works daily to develop her craft by writing for both herself and other artists. She plays writers rounds at many local venues such as The Commodore Grille, Belcourt Taps, and Red Line. Over the next year she will have three singles hitting radio waves and being released to all listening platforms. "I just want to tell stories that people hear and go, "oh yeah, I get that". To me that means being as genuine and honest as possible. I mean, Im pretty in love with the fact that I get to wake up every day, create something that didn't exist the day before, and put it into the universe to see where it ends up. There's some kind of real magic found in that."
