My name is Erin and I'm a singer-songwriter who has recently relocated from London to NYC. My music is quirky, sometimes funny and filled with strange and often touching stories that I derive from my life experiences. I don't hold back, and this is made evident both in my song topics and also my commitment to this project.

Over the past 3 years I've worked with several different musicians and have incorporated many instruments such as guitar, ukulele, cello, bass, and piano, amongst others in both live performance and on recordings. Most of my song arrangements start off at home with my own layered vocal harmonies and so I am very passionate about using the vocal as an instrument wherever possible!

I am currently working with a VERY gifted percussionist here in NYC and am looking to add some vocal harmonies, along with another string instrument. This is not a rehearsal for a one-off performance and this is not an after-school project. My aim is to create a very solid and unique sound and will be looking to record in the upcoming months, organize a release, and plan a NYC showcase and tour for later this year. I currently have a month-long PAID tour booked for the entire month of November across Italy and this could certainly be something I would look to include you in. I also have plans to make 2 music videos before November, as well as one at the end of the tour which will be filmed in Italy.

Currently this is not advertised as a paid position. I am self-funding and will be crediting performance (and possibly writing) royalties on recordings as well as paying for transportation, accommodation and splitting all gig/merch earnings. That said, depending on your commitment and level of experience, I am willing to discuss further payment upon application.

WHO ARE YOU? I'm looking for a strong vocalist with harmonizing experience. I am more than open to any input you may have on arrangements both lyrically and melodically. Some performance experience is important, as you must be comfortable on stage. This is a singer-songwriter group and so I'd prefer not to have vocals that are too affected or theatre-like. I hope that's not offensive to anyone, I'm simply searching for the strongest solid vocals that I believe will gel best with my own and also for harmonies! Ideally I would like to include someone who also has a string instrument skill, although this is not a deal-breaker.

If this is something you think you might be interested in please get in touch! I can guarantee this will not be your run of the mill folky singer-songwriter group; it will be creative and fun and we will be looking to produce something very unique! I am based in Brooklyn (on the L) but am happy to rehearse anywhere in Manhattan. My percussionist is in Chelsea, so we often rehearse there when convenient. I look forward to hearing from you!
