Music Spotlight: Erutan


My favorite genre to geek out over is definitely "fantasy." I have always loved anything magical, mythical and mystical. It's why I choose to mostly play MMORPGs like EverQuest 2 or dress up as an elven warrior or princess. While browsing through YouTube videos tonight, I found an artist named Erutan. I am kind of shocked I have never heard of her before. Her music is enchanting and fits right in with my playlists. The best part of discovering the song "The Willow Maid" on YouTube was witnessing the whimsical tale through a moving collage of art. I have listened to her whole album "Raindancer" on iTunes now and equally enjoyed it. But I do recommend you watch the video to experience the story first hand. :) Another favorite of mine is her cover of the song "Come Little Children" from the movie Hocus Pocus. Erutan had created a Kickstarter to help produce a physical copy of her album, and I am so happy that she's gone way over her goal. Very well-deserved!

Perhaps the timing of this discovery was meant to be for me. I will be my favorite elf this Saturday! I am wearing my Legolas cosplay to the Heart of Texas Comic Con in Waco, Tx. I'm excited for the chance to meet Manu Bennett who is Azog the Defiler in The Hobbit. Be sure to follow me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook (@GlitzyGeekGirl) to see my posts from the weekend. This is my first time having a table at a convention and being a costume contest judge, too!

Who are some of your favorite "fantasy" musicians?

  2. I do like fantasy metal with tenor style vocals. Have you heard of The Hack and Slashers? They are from your area (Texas). They're a funny version of fantasy punk/metal/Rock'n'Roleplay. Also anything with legends and myths (metal, celtic, jazz, etc) is always fun to check out!

    I also like the Aquabats and their often Sci-Fi influenced Ska!

  3. I've been listening to Erutan (aka katethegreat19) for years I'm so glad you found her, she's too awesome! My favorite covers are probably Come Little Children and The Dragonborn Comes. My favorite original of her's is probably Across the Sunlands. It just makes me soo happy.

  4. I'll have to check out Erutan... sounds interesting! I'm listening to the Game of Thrones rap album (Catch the Throne, available for a free listen on SoundCloud) right now. If you're ever in the mood for some epic fantasy metal, you should check out Dragonforce.
