“I was moved to tears by Erin Cole-Baker’s songwriting and her live delivery, which seemed to come from a place of great honesty and beauty. There’s a deceptive simplicity to these tunes, an elusive quality to capture as a songwriter, but a quality that Erin possesses in spades and wields with grace and dexterity.” – Liz Stringer
Erin Cole-Baker was born in the USA and raised in rural Northland N.Z. Erin has been drawn to music for as long as she can remember, lured into the world of sound by warm tones, resonance of strings, harmonies and the call of the place that only music can take us.
Erin released Talon & Spur in 2009 and Big Sky in 2011. Now her latest album“Till the feeling’s right” just released. With a solid bunch of new songs and a newly acquired Fender Telecaster guitar, Cole-Baker recorded with a band of friends live to 2 inch tape. This process has inspired her most full and grounded body of work to date.
Early this year Erin was funded by Outward Sound New Zealand to attend the Folk Alliance International Conference in Kansas City. Radio New Zealand has recently featured Erin live on air as a First Song.
