Erin & The Project
Bringing high energy soulful music, while combining jazz, blues, pop, and funk elements, Erin and The Project feature powerhouse female vocals and solid grooves.
Both Erin and Paul Ezekiel began writing music together in 2005, but it wasn’t until their wedding in 2008 that they played their music live for family and friends. Shortly after the recession hit California, they resolved to quitting their day jobs and officially starting their music career with small Bay Area gigs and a self-titled EP.
Within a few years they moved up into the Sierra Foothills, began playing shows throughout California, and caught the attention of well-known industry professionals such as Mickey Thomas (Jefferson Starship) and Jeff Tamelier (Tower of Power, Starship, etc.).
Eventually they connected with Grammy award winning engineer/mixer, Oz Fritz (Tom Waits), and recorded their second album, BIRTHDAY, in October 2011 with him and bay area guitarist, Jonnie Axtell, in their humble Colfax living room.
Since that time, they have been touring their music around the US, playing in a full range of venue atmospheres…from loud rock clubs to wine tasting rooms.
In October 2013, they met up with Oz once again to record their third album, A LITTLE LOVE. This time they recorded at the world renowned Prairie Sun Recording Studios, featuring Eric McFadden (guitar), Matthew Charles Heulitt (guitar), Jason Langley (bass), Phil Bennett (organ), and Ram Kaundinya (tabla). Their single, PROMISES (released on Jan. 30th), was specially mixed in Wales by multi-Grammy winner, Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Peter Gabriel, Sheryl Crow, etc.).
