Erin McKeown is a musician, writer, and producer known internationally for her prolific disregard of stylistic boundaries.
Her brash and clever electric guitar playing is something to see. Her singing voice is truly unique – clear, cool, and collected. A familiar presence on NPR and the BBC, McKeown’s songs have also appeared on numerous television shows and commercials.
While a student at Brown University, Erin spent three years as an artist in residence at Providence, RI’s revolutionary community arts organization, AS220. She has spent the next decade and a half playing nearly 200 shows a year while releasing 9 studio albums and refining a distinct and challenging mix of American musical styles.
An active voice on social justice issues and culture, Erin was a 2011-12 fellow at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet and Society, and she has blogged and hosted for WNYC New York Public Radio. A former board member of the Future of Music Coalition, McKeown has also worked closely with a range of non-profits focusing on her core concerns of media justice and immigration reform.
McKeown’s first original musical, “Miss You Like Hell”, co-written with Tony & Pulitzer winner Quiara Alegria Hudes, had its world premiere in the Fall of 2016 at the La Jolla Playhouse. It opens off-broadway at the legendary Public Theatre in the Spring of 2018. Her latest release is 2017’s MIRRORS BREAK BACK.
