Erin McLendon is a singer/songwriter from Durham, NC who finds her inspiration from artists ranging from Jimmy Buffett and Jason Mraz, Miranda Lambert and Reba McEntire to Tina Turner and Aretha Franklin. While some would be confused by this combination, it’s all a part of what makes Erin a one-of-a-kind country artist. Growing up in North Carolina, country music has always been a big part of her musical influence. Ever since Erin joined the church choir in second grade, she has loved performing. She began writing at a young age, but it was a tenth grade history project that really got her songwriting career going. The assignment was to write a song about the Vietnam War and perform it for the class, and later, for the entire school on Veteran's Day. Ever since she has been writing solo, and collaborating with artists such as Britton Cameron, Bryan White, and Mike Marcum. Her songs contain catchy melodies that focus on emphasizing the story within the music. Her latest self-titled EP has become a top 100 seller on CDUniverse.com and has been receiving rave reviews since its release in July 2011.
Erin’s latest endeavors include singing the National Anthem at Duke University’s home opener against Belmont back in November of 2011. The sold out crowd liked Erin so much, they invited her back to sing at another packed house later that year. Since then, she has found herself singing National Anthems in venues such as the Durham Bulls, Belmont Baseball, The Music City 5K/10K, and even a National political party convention.
Erin is currently signed to PCG Nashville, an Artist Development company in Nashville, where she is working on writing her first full-length album.
