Erin is gaining recognition as a hard-working emerging original artist, and in 2016 she brings a fresh new sound; her work has developed through three years of dedication, two National Tours, nine years of writing and of course, many various life experiences, some of which will be familiar to all. She brings these experiences, inspirations and stories to you in her shows through well crafted and intelligently-worded lyrical flair; aside from the light, chatty introductions, themes in her songs range from love and war, right through to protecting the environment and social observations.. Intrigued by the 'Beautiful People' she meets along the way, Erin truly is a 'folk' artist in the real sense.. she creates music for the people.

The show is 100% Original and 100% live; Erin contrasts the intimate ambience of sweet, barely-accompanied a-capela songs, against tracks using a loop pedal right in front of you; laying funky bass lines, swinging upbeat rhythm, sweet vocal harmonies, bright leads, and general 'Rhythm and Soul' overtop each other.. gradually building powerful choruses that are accentuated with the kick of her stomp box and ultimately superseded by a passionate, unique vocal style. Think Alanis Morissette meets Jewel, with the big heart of Bob Marley, the social and political aspirations of the late John Lennon, and in the style of Eddie Vedder, though she grew up singing along to fellow kiwi artists like Brooke Fraser and Anika Moa.

Listeners are somewhat undecided. "There isn't another [artist] with a similar style or tone in their voice.. Unique is good.. It's hard not to feel inspired" - Karin Hoffman, This & That Magazine, Nelson.

It might be hard to pinpoint a genre, but what is clear is that it's popular.
"I've had a world famous live music venue for ten years.. on the way home I ticked up the best music system I could find so I could have her voice at home" - Shayne Kavanagh, Strawberry Tree, Kaikoura.

"Erin is a true bohemian poet. She blends catchy folk charm with deep soulful ballads. Her music speaks from the heart. Always deeply honest and challenging, she blends story telling and her impressions of the world around her to create captivating performances all audiences can enjoy." - Josh, Cowan Creative, Timaru.

Check her out for yourself, (preferably with good friends and fine beverages!) at the Social Club Restaurant and Bar, Mt Maunganui!
