Some people might call May Erlewine “Michigan’s Songbird”, but her songs have traveled far beyond her home state.
One of the most prolific and passionate songwriters of her generation, May’s music has touched the hearts of people all over the world. Her words have held solace for weary hearts, offered a light in the darkness and held a lot of space for the pain and joy of being alive in these times. When she starts to sing, there’s no way around it. Welcome to the moment, everyone.
Raised in a family rich with art and music, May began writing songs and playing them for the people at a very young age. Her journeys have taken her all over the world, from street corners to renowned stages, May has performed for all walks of life. In her travels Erlewine came to know the land and the pulse of the people. Her songs show a very real connection and concern with everyday folk.
“She's certainly not resting on her laurels here, Erlewine ought to hook anyone who's searching for something more out of their music.”
"May Erlewine has the sort of soul-baring voice that moves the Alan Lomaxes of the world to abandon the ivory tower for the back roads of rural America."
- The Harvard Independent
"I'm going to have file May beside all my Nanci Griffith CDs because these two women are gold."
- No Depression
