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."

"I'm going to have file May beside all my Nanci Griffith CDs because these two women are gold."
