Performer and singer/songwriter from Kentucky, Erin Coburn has captivated her audiences since a young age, with her prowess on guitar, her powerful vocals, and bringing her own style of Rock with Blues influences into the 21st century. Those that attend Erin’s live shows describe her as having a mesmerizing stage presence with her intricate arrangements and dynamic lyrics that stirs the soul. She commands her band with an effortless confidence while giving the audience something unexpected, like shredding her electric ukulele during a hypnotizing solo.
Although, Erin has had a guitar in her hands since the age of two, seven is when she started playing the guitar seriously. At the age of ten, a former guitar teacher told her she couldn’t play the guitar and sing at the same time, but she quickly proved him wrong. By eleven, she was going to every open mic around her home town where she honed her improvisation skills with several local bands. She formed her own band and earned her first paid gig at age twelve. Erin recorded her first original album, Chaos Before Conformity (2015) at thirteen. These songs truly showed her young, unbridled creativity with catchy hooks and lyrics and placed in the top 100 on the Americana Radio Charts a few weeks after release. Erin's second album, Queen Of Nothing (2017), released at sixteen, is the expression of a woman coming of age in a confusing, mixed up, and often cruel world. The songs are easy to relate to, often hitting close to home. Fifteen tracks take the listener on a journey that is a little bit Alt Rock with a good dose of Blues. Currently being recorded is Erin's third album, which captures her natural progression to a more mature sound with edgier lyrics, searing guitar solos, and a dash of humor. The release of "Out From Under" is coming soon.
Erin regularly performs across the U.S. at venues and festivals of all sizes. She has performed with Grammy award winning artists in Nashville, was nominated for the 2017 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards in the Best Blues artist category, the 2018 Josie Awards for "Young Adult Artist of the Year" award for independent artists, and has played several shows and festivals, including Summerfest in Milwaukee, BlissFest in Michigan, and the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Arkansas. Some of Erin’s notable recent shows have been repeat performances at Buddy Guy’s Legends in Chicago, the Slippery Noodle in Indianapolis, and being the opening act for The Marcus King Band, Larry McCray, and Three Dog Night.
