Helena’s favorite vocalist is the Swedish jazz singer Monica Zetterlund. And Helena celebrated her by recording a CD with just Monica’s repertoire. "Helena Eriksson sjunger Zetterlund". One of the reviews ended "Monica would have liked this".
Helena’s sensual stage presence and her soulful interpretation create a warm atmosphere at her concerts. Her repertoire is wide and she works in various constellations and styles.
Helena was born in Mariestad and she grew up in the surrounding countryside in Gullspång. Now she lives in Stockholm.
Helena had her first gig while visiting New York in 1992, where she guest soloed at the legendary jazz club The Village Gate. There she was introduced as “the Swedish singer with the sultry Peggy Lee sound". Inspired and encouraged, she returned home. Since then Helena has been working as a singer releasing her albums on her own record label Loveberry Production.
