A Timeless Collection of Standards Featuring Sophisticated Orchestral and Big Band Arrangements

For the last twenty years, Erin has travelled the world performing in venues such as the Venito Jazz Festival in Venice Italy, the RCA Jazz Fest in New York City, Westminster Abbey and the Sydney Opera House. She is also an accomplished session musician, having recorded for Walt Disney (movies, theme parks and ice shows), Sandi Patti, New York’s American Natural History Museum, Dollywood, national publishers and many more.

Steal Away features many of her favorite songs from throughout her career, with each track telling a story in a different way. She tackles these difficult, melodically chromatic tunes with style – many her own arrangements – and makes them sound easy.
