So just when a star is born- you quit your day job and shave your head- well that”s what singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Erin Barra did. I first came across Erin Barra bartending at SOB’s – Served up great drinks-always thought she was funky, great look and fun personality- I had no idea she was an artist until J.J Brown(producer/MC) album release party at SOB’s last Summer.
I’d also heard that John Oates of Hall and Oates fame had taken a liking to this young girl and helped with some songwriting direction and mentoring.
Fast forward- Erin Barra has been busy working on an EP called ‘Illusions’ which is 6 songs that will be given away Free to the public when you log on to her website. Erin Barra. Every 3 weeks a new song will be offered starting with “Magician”- Listen here:
Other tracks are: “Good Man”, “Skyline”, “Satisfied”, “Another Way” and “Soul Revolutions 5G remix”.
Now she’s Erin Barra full time and the rock star she is- there will be many trips to the barbershop starting with the ‘Star Born’ experience.
Erin is immersed in urban culture. You can feel the soul and beat in her music and lyrically. It should come as no surprise that her audience will be a multi-cultural mix of fans across the board. Down the road I’m sure we’ll see a few collaborations with gifted MC’s- Just watch!
So cop that Free Download of “Magician” on Erin Barra.
