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.
Erin’s first two original albums, Chaos Before Conformity (2015) and Queen of Nothing (2017), showed more of her blues roots with young, unbridled creativity. Her third album, currently being recorded, captures her natural progression to a more mature sound with edgier lyrics and searing guitar solos. Look for the release late Spring 2019.

“I met her at the Pinetop Perkins Foundation workshops and I knew she was very talented but her album knocks me out!”
— Bob Margolin
“Erin also has a beyond-her-years knack for coming up with clever hooks and memorable melodies – little musical kernels you can carry around with you as you go about your daily tasks. Her lyrics seem honest, not contrived, and work well with her mature, honey-hued vocals – convincingly spiked by an occasional country lilt or some bluesy grit.”
— Gordon Webb, Martinez Gazette
“She can lay back or reeve up while pulling fine bluesrock sounds and rhythms out of her electric guitar or electric ukulele. Also, she can go authentically country and tastefully pop. Her effortless singing is rangy—she pulls her vocal triggers at will.”
— Zeno Songbird, Knoxville Music Warehouse
