Bio

Big Female Voice of the Southland Hits the Marketplace

Atlanta,GA -- Eryn McHugh is poised to breathe new life into the sometimes-mundane singer/songwriter vein.

As an Atlanta preacher's daughter, Eryn grew up singing and playing piano in the choir, but has since purposefully challenged her own humble beginnings. She has sung in an all African-American ensemble, been the "front-gal" of an Andrews Sisters tribute at the 2003 Olympic Trials, charted and performed with jam-genre band, Bluestring, and is currently touring with her band (which includes Atlanta guitar maestro, Jason Christian, who doubles as her primary writing partner). McHugh honed her writing in the undergraduate English program at the University of Georgia.
Self-described as "thoughtful, eclectic and socially schizophrenic," Eryn's writing ranges from subtle observation to outspoken commentary. She credits Carole King, Martin Sexton, Jeff Buckley, Rickie Lee Jones, and Jonatha Brooke as seminal influences. A consummate "right-brainer," as she often points out, these days her writing takes on other incarnations as well: she is currently working on both a screenplay and an anthology of short stories and poetry.
Eryn scratches the surface of her ever-morphing style on her self-titled debut album "Eryn McHugh," which was co-produced with Emmy award winning producer Cliff Downs. She has recently been "writing (her) tail off," preparing her next album-length body of work for producing and recording.
*McHugh's music has been heard on General Hospital
*Atlanta's alternative weekly, Creative Loafing, recently reviewed the debut album:
"Though her drop dead looks may cause some to dismiss her, there's substance to this 21 year old Atlanta native. Her self-titled debut, finds her soulful voice running over surprisingly diverse musical terrain, sashaying from pop to gospel to soul without ever sounding lost." (David Peisner)
*The Flagpole of Athens, GA recently said of Eryn:
"...not just another generic diva, but (what could be) considered a radio-ready pop chanteuse."

Big words for this five-foot-nothing preacher's kid.
