Erin has recently performed at some of NY’s most famous jazz clubs and cabaret venues including The Iridium Jazz Club, Birdland, Joe’s Pub, Ra Cafe & Lounge, Don’t Tell Mama, The Laurie Beechman Theater and The Salmagundi Club. Her most recent performance was at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland where she performed her show, The Great American Songbook Retold, at The Lot Jazz Club. Erin has performed as headline act to an excited and sold-out crowd for the annual Forest Hills Jazz Festival and has acted as the artistic ambassador for the charitable organization, The March of Dimes. She has worked with leading Broadway performers, including Laura Osnes, Nancy Anderson, & Tituss Burgess. Last year, she recorded a duet with Broadway great John Treacy Egan on his CD, On Christmas Morning, and performs regularly with him at venues throughout the Tri-State area, including The Castle on The Hudson in Tarrytown, NY and The Emelin Theater in Mamaroneck, NY. On January 23rd, she made her debut at the Metropolitan Room to a sold-out audience for the CD release of her new jazz album, I'd Rather Be Lonely, and weeks later, did a CD signing and performance of songs from the album at Barnes and Noble at Lincoln Center. On June 18th, Erin performed to a standing room only audience for her show with husband, David Shenton, at Caffe Vivaldi in NYC. She is planning a tour of her CD at venues throughout Mississippi & Louisiana starting in 2011.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
