Erin McKeown is a musician, writer, and producer known internationally for her prolific disregard of stylistic boundaries. Her brash and clever electric guitar playing is something to see. Her singing voice is truly unique – clear, cool, and collected. A familiar presence on NPR and the BBC, McKeown’s songs have also appeared on numerous television shows and commercials. She has spent the last decade and a half playing nearly 200 shows a year while releasing 9 studio albums and refining a distinct and challenging mix of American musical styles.
McKeown’s first original musical, “Miss You Like Hell”, co-written with Tony & Pulitzer winner Quiara Alegria Hudes, had its world premiere in the Fall of 2016 at the La Jolla Playhouse. It opened Off-Broadway at The Public Theater in the spring of 2018 where it was nominated for 3 Outer Critics Circle Awards (Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Best Score) and 5 Drama Desk Awards (including Best Music, Best Lyrics, Best Orchestrations).Website
