Erin Cole-Baker is an American born singer/songwriter who grew up in coastal Northland of New Zealand. She wrote her first song on a guitar bought with a hundred dollars from her great aunt Honey when she was ten, and played jazz piano until leaving home and turning back to songwriting with a guitar in hand.
Her songs are simple wonders coupled with a depth of raw emotion with a nod to her acoustic roots. Cole-Bakers gorgeous, silvery voice and extraordinary sense of melody draws the listener to want more.
Cole-Baker spent a good chunk of time living in Oregon, playing in different transformations of her music from solo, duo to full band. A born traveller, Erin loves bouncing between her two countries with her one love of music at the forefront. The last couple of years have been low key for Erin as she has been raising two kids in rural NZ, with regular trips to the USA to reconnect with her Oregon community.
Erins' newly acquired Telecaster guitar and Princeton reverb amp has inspired some exciting new songs, the warm rich tones expanding her sound. Erin is currently recording on 2 inch tape at Anzac Rd studio, preparing to release this album and tour in early 2018.
