Eria Fachin

Eria Fachin (born on April 20, 1960 in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) was a female dance\pop singer from the '80s.
In 1987, Eria released her first single "Savin' Myself" which peaked at #54 on the Billboard Hot 100, #33 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Club Play chart and #13 on Billboard's Hot Dance Music\Maxi-Singles Sales chart. It was successful in her native Canada and managed to peak at #91 on the U.K. Singles chart.
In 1988, Eria released her only album "My Name is Eria Fachin." It's unknown how or if the album ever charted.

The follow-up singles from the album "Eria's Aria\I Hear a Symphony" and "Your Love Just Came Too Late" were successful in Canada, but it's unknown how well it did in the United States.

After that, nothing much was heard from Eria and she had seemingly faded into obscurity. During that time, Eria was working on a new album, but she was diagnosed with cancer. Her follow-up album was never released because Eria lost her battle with cancer on September 5, 1996. She was only 36 years old.

Eria recorded the theme song for the Kiefer Sutherland movie "Woman Wanted" which wasn't released until 2000, four years after Eria's death.
