sensed something very special. She heard a sound and delivery that she
identified with immediately, and continues ro channel both in the studio
and in live performance.
McCallum has been making great strides in the music industry applying
that basic approach - true to the long standing roots of the Blues - as a
basis of her own vision of the genre. And, people are taking notice.
Eastablishing a sound revolving around that voice - a captivating alto
tenor - Erin has recieved well deserved recognition with two Maple
Blues Awards Nominations in 2011
- Female Vocalist of the Year.

Erin has four albums to her credit, including the latest release
"Complicated Woman". All four albums follow the same formula:
McCallum writing, arranging, and producing strong material, and
Erin's powerful vocals taking centre stage.
Erin's strong songwriting has garnered her international recognition, most
recently winning the "Honorable Mention" by the International Songwriting
Competition for her lyrics on "Complicated Woman".
A multi-instrumentalist, Erin is the solitary
vocalist, rhythm guitar player and harmonica
player in the band. In addition to her musical
efforts, Erin also serves as bandleader and
musical arranger for the entire project.
