Hi! I am a voice teacher and singer-songwriter living in Newark, Delaware.This is my sixth year fawming. I'm feeling kind of weird towards FAWM this year, but am still hoping to get some new songs written.

I also sometimes write songs over at @honeybadgerfolk with my husband @natrin.


"Quit the bitching on your blog
And stop pretending art is hard
Just limit yourself to three chords
And do not practice daily
You'll minimize some stranger's sadness
With a piece of wood and plastic
Holy fuck, it's so fantastic, playing ukulele!"

    Hello, Erin! My name is Errol. Do you remember me? Someone was talking about you on the slack chat! 😁 Don't worry, it was positive, and i concurred with the positivity.

    Ha, thank you - Ariana was only 17 when Captain Beefheart died. I can only imagine if he'd have held on just a few more years, we could have got the collaboration we've all be yearning for.

    Hi Erin, just listened to your song. I'm in PA and get to Delaware regularly. Surprised our paths haven't crossed. Like you work here.

    Holy moly, I listened to all of your songs and I'm so glad I didn't miss out on that! You have such a fantastic soothing voice that can make love songs and Verizon hate songs alike sound amazing. I am really digging your music so far so I hope you keep it up! 😀

    So glad you liked "The Note." I see you have more goodies for me to listen to. Back in a bit.
