Bio

Erin Wiggers is a former medical student turned music industry professional with incredible drive and determination. Performing as Erin Callie, an Americana singer-songwriter, the WAE founder had a long history of struggling to balance art and academia. Finally, some combination of both won that struggle: after leaving her second year of medical school, she eagerly enrolled in a Masters of Science program in Entertainment Business at Full Sail University where she graduated in 2014. Since that time, she has worked with Mississippi's premier music businesses such as Malaco Records, Ardenland concert promotions, and DeChamp Records, honing her skills as a musician and entrepreneur.

For most of her life, Erin Callie worked towards becoming a doctor. medicine seemed like the logical choice, but she eventually she came to realize that logic tends to ignore passion. As a medical student, Callie had little time for music at all, let alone the time to create or perform it. She had never felt so disconnected from her creativity. This was not a sustainable lifestyle. There may have been light at the end of that tunnel, but there was certainly no music. So, she chose to gamble on her passion in hopes of true happiness. She started following her heart instead of her head in her search for purpose. It may be a long shot, but a chance at a life dedicated to music was one worth taking.

Since changing her career course, Erin Callie has performed at numerous venues across the state of Mississippi and even opened for two national touring acts at Duling Hall in Jackson. She is now preparing to release her demo and pursue regional touring opportunities.

Callie combines the sweet southern charm of an Ole Miss sorority girl with the mind of a scholar and the philosophical leanings of an old hippie. With an intricate acoustic picking style and a unique voice, she has the ability to put a distinctive, folky spin on songs of any genre. Her original music embraces this neo-folk style, drawing inspiration from country, bluegrass, and Americana music.
