Erisy Watt is a Nashville-raised folk-soul artist based in Portland OR. Having toured in several countries over the past years alongside guitarist Jeremy Ferrara, Watt’s blend of folk and soul often compared to Joni Mitchell and Norah Jones is enchanting audiences from Germany to Thailand and across the US.
Developing her sound in Santa Barbara, CA where she lived for six years, Watt’s music invites listeners to revel in the beauty and freedom of wilder places.
In addition to performing, Watt founded benefit concert series Cabin by the Sea as a way to intertwine her deep reverence for live music and passion for positive community action. A traveling concert series that raises funds and awareness for local organizations, Cabin by the Sea has raised over $8,000 for area nonprofits and musicians since its founding and continues to bring the community together to groove, give back, and gain awareness.
For Watt and those she plays with, it’s all about "giving back and building community. It’s clear they are proactive people who suffuse their whole lives with purpose, passion, and positivity."(Richie DeMaria, Santa Barbara Independent)
