Sounds like Blossom Dearie fronting They Might Be Giants” -The Philadelphia Enquirer

Erin and Her Cello have been charming audiences with their quirky, vivacious, and undeniably unique (Strings Magazine) performances all over the east coast. From Joe's Pub to BAM, Rockwood Music Hall to World Café Live, this kooky songstress, her stringed soul mate, and her six person band, simply cannot be confined to one musical genre. Their new album, “Petits Bisous” packs a retro punch -- playfully melding 50’s/60’s doo wop, surf rock, jazz, funk, and french pop. And as always, this winner of Stand Up NY’s “Music is a Joke” contest, and darling of the downtown comedy scene, underscores every song with deft wit.

"Erin is using her experiences and distinctive sense of humor to create a type of performance art that almost defies description." -Anna Bengel,

“Erin is a hilarious chick with a sense of humor as finely tuned as her cello… she wields her bow with the same wit and saavy that a satirist wields his pen!” -Doug Wright, playwright, 2004 Pulitzer Prize Winner for Drama

“If you’ve never heard of Erin and Her Cello, you’re missing out on some of the funniest stuff out there. Seriously, I almost spit my beer out of my nose and onto my camera-- twice.” -Chris Owyoung
