Erin grew up in a small, French-Canadian, hockey-loving community south of Winnipeg, Manitoba. Erin shone in vocal studies, competitions, youth choirs, and went on from her trophy winning days in South-Eastern Manitoba to getting out on her own with her guitar, original tunes and arrangements. By the age of 17, Erin had played to audiences numbering in the thousands, but also loved intimate house concert settings to be able to share a bit more of the personal side of her songs and life.
Searching to broaden her musical understanding and to go beyond her classical studies and folk repertoire, Erin studied at the Marcel A. Desautels Faculty of Music at the University of Manitoba, graduating in 2011 with a bachelor’s degree in Jazz Studies. Studying under Larry Roy, Steve Kirby, Jimmy Greene, Anna-Lisa Kirby, Quincy Davis, George Colligan and many others, Erin seriously improved upon her abilities and gained fresh insight into a world of song-writing, performance and arranging. What Erin offers now is a blend of all of her roots into a genre-bending style. Erin is currently based in Winnipeg, freelancing in music and collaborating with as diverse a pool of musicians as can be imagined.
In addition to the U of M faculty, Erin has performed with conductor/pianist/producer Michelle Mourre, cellist Yuri Hooker, award-winning jazz pianist Mike Janzen, Papa Mambo, Juno-nominated bassist and band-leader Jodi Proznick, The Ripperz, the Winnipeg Jazz Orchestra (just to name a few), and has recorded with Don Thompson, Larry Roy, Luke Sellick, Janice Finlay and Bert Johnson.
