About Eryn Michel
Eryn Michel [EH-rin MIH-shel]
Eryn Michel is a folktronica, Americana and country songwriter who carries a torch for waltz-time ballads. Occasionally, she can be tricked into performing (usually by frequent performing buddy Susan Rowe). Since quarantine, she has been fortunate to flourish as a voice actor and instrumental music producer.
Although Eryn recently started releasing her own music, she primarily considers herself a songwriter who likes to help others tell their story. Click here to see a sample of her country and pop demos.
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 for the series. To learn more about Songcraft, visit Chris' website.
Eryn 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.
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.
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 has performed at the Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN and stages in her local Washington, D.C. area including the Washington Folk Festival, Epicure Cafe, Positano Ristorante, Hershey's Restaurant, Homegrown Coffeehouse, and Bump 'n Grind. She is an alum of the Acoustic Guitar Project.
Eryn composed the music for the podcast Is that a fact? and has music featured on Timeless Spirituality.
