Erin was born and raised in southern Georgia. She grew up listening to Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, The Beatles, Simon and Garfunkel, and Irish music…a whole lot of Irish music. Her mom introduced her to country music. She would play Toby Keith, Alan Jackson and Brooks and Dunn in the car. As a little girl, Erin would try to get my voice as deep as I could to match theirs.
She’s been performing for as long as she could remember. When she was 19, her cousin Jacob Underwood (from MTV’s making the band, OTown) brought her to Nashville to start my dream. She recorded my first EP in the Rascal Flatts private studio.
Since then I’ve been writing daily and recording more songs along the way- including “Tomahawk Love” and her latest single is called “Any Other Heart.” When she first started a reporter said she would be as popular as Taylor Swift one day. This motivates her to keep pounding away and working hard. Erin has finally found her genuine, unique sound and she believes there is no better feeling than sharing that with people.
