"Erin Lee:The Soulstress"

"Erin Lee is hot! She's talented, articulate, and destined for glory. I called my colleagues over to my computer to one afternoon to hear her music on Myspace, and watched their faces as they listened to the voice of Erin Lee for the first time. We have all concurred that she is a gem. " - Musicforamerica.org


""Loving Yourself" Is My Music"

(Only an excerpt translated to English)
"I want to spread the message that we must never give up and we must love ourselves." says Erin Lee , The Soulstress. Rather than focusing on being a pop singer who dances, The Soulstress would rather be an artist who spreads the positive message of loving yourself. An artist who'd rather make the listener feel raw emotions. "
- The Korea Times


"From Small-Town Fame to the Big Apple"

"At 23 years old with a voice wrapped in soul, Erin Lee is the epitome of a strong Asian American woman. For that reason, she is known as "The Soulstress." With a balance of Jazz, Soul, and R&B, the Koreatown native and former art major shares her journey of self-acceptance and love after self-rejection. The hate and hard-knocked relationships in her lyrics are comparable to the works of India.Arie and Jill Scott." - Dig Magazine

Bio

In a world full of bubblegum rock, cookie-cutter Asian pop and bling, The Soulstress offers Neo-soul with a touch of Jazz. Throughout the years, The Soulstress has established herself as one of the rare Asian-American artists to create and perform stirring Neo-soul music. At the tender age of 5, The Soulstress picked up the violin and quickly fell passionately in love with music. She lived, breathed, and ate music in her daily life. Growing up in Koreatown, Los Angeles, she was exposed to the harsh realities of poverty, gang violence, and racial prejudice. In order to keep her distracted from becoming involved with dangerous paths, her parents placed her in numerous orchestras and music competitions.

Although she won many violin competitions and played her own concerts, The Soulstress felt that singing was truly her calling. She quickly began writing poetry at the age of 11 and soon penned her own songs. While in highschool, she performed with the prestigious Loyola Concert Choir. Soon, the Hip-Hop and R&B that surrounded her became her passion. Her obessions with singing and writing became so strong that she sacrificed a promising education in fashion design at a prestigious institution to pursue her dreams of becoming a soul-stirring singer. Now,in her early twenties, she continues to perform honest and truthful music. In her music lies a message of unconditional self-love, a message lacking in music today.
