From Edmonton, Alberta to Williams Lake, B.C., and back, Erin has been on a journey of self-discovery over the years. With immaculately crafted songs about love, loss, heartbreak, and ultimately hope, she lays her heart on the table with her debut EP Into the Light, an intimate glimpse into who she is and the experiences that have shaped her. Her voice is powerful and her vulnerability rare, and she hopes to inspire those who are on the same path through her music. Erin's voice has been likened to "honey and tabasco, swirled in a cloud of smoke", drawing comparisons not only to classic folk artists like Joni Mitchell and Emmylou Harris, but also reflects the resilience and redemption of Beth Orton and the storytelling of Dar Williams.
“Erin is one of those who consistently hushes a crowded room. She surrenders to her music.” – Rhea March - Radio Host on CJSR 88.5 "It takes a village".
Her EP ‘Into the Light’ which was released November 2014, gained her airplay on CBC radio, CKUA and other local and college radio stations across Canada. Erin Kay continues to gain momentum after a busy summer playing folk festivals such as the Canmore Folk Music Festival and the Edmonton Folk music festival. At these festivals she played before acts such as Amelia Curran & Angus & Julie Stone, to a crowd of 20,000.
