About Eryn Michel
Eryn Michel [EH-rin MIH-shel] is a folktronica, Americana and country songwriter who carries a torch for waltz time ballads. Occasionally, she can be tricked into performing.
Her latest single is a collaboration called Darling Eye, a soulful Americana reckoning on the fleeting human experience, wrapped up with lush harmonies and an unflinching guitar motif. As the first song on Chris Peace’s Songcraft II, Darling Eye ushers in a fresh chapter of artist collaborations. To learn more about Songcraft, visit Chris' website.
In quarantine, she has been fortunate to flourish as a voice actor and instrumental producer. She served in the U.S. Army as a Civil Affairs Sergeant in Iraq, attended UCLA for political science, and then served in the White House. She quickly soured on war and politics, and she turned to music and motherhood to restore her soul. She now resides in Maryland with her husband, 7-year-old daughter, and live-in songwriter mother.
Eryn predominantly writes country songs for male or duet vocals, though she’ll follow a song wherever it wants to go, whether that is in Americana, folk, indie pop, and modern lullabies.
She serves on the board of the Songwriters' Association of Washington and she is a member of NSAI and the World Folk Music Association. She is a consulting songwriter/producer for Hear Me Roar Studio, a female-owned and operated boutique sync and production company in Silver Spring, MD.
Eryn served in the U.S. Army as a Civil Affairs Sergeant in Operation Iraqi Freedom, as a small arms instructor, and as worship leader for battalion chapel. She resides in Maryland with her husband, daughter, mother, and their dog Gus.
She has performed at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN and venues in her local Washington, D.C. area including Epicure Cafe, Positano Ristorante, Hershey's Restaurant, Homegrown Coffeehouse, and Bump 'n Grind. She is an alum of the Acoustic Guitar Project.
