Wielding wit, humor, and her crystalline voice, Erin has performed hundreds of shows around the world in backyards, concert halls, boardrooms, and the GRAMMY Festival at Sea, in a diverse arrangement of solo and band scenarios.
Her albums have garnered numerous Top 10 and Album of the Year recognitions, a Black Fret artist grant, and placements on movie soundtracks, advertisements, and TV shows such as Suits and The Client List. She is a regular Critics' Pick at SXSW.Erin is a songwriting mentor at Song Rise Arts and GRAMMY U. She sits on the Board of Governors for the Texas Chapter of the Recording Academy (GRAMMYs, MusiCares) where she co-chairs the Education Committee, connecting industry members with opportunities to inspire and equip the next generation of music makers.
The long-awaited forthcoming album Solace in the Wild will be released January 29, 2021. Weaving together indie folk, Americana, and her signature psychedelic winks, Austin Chronicle called the songs "deeply moving, beyond a genre, backed by a subtly fabulous band."
