Erin and Her Cello
Erin and Her Cello have been charming audiences with their quirky, vivacious, and undeniably unique (Strings Magazine) performances all over the east coast. From Joe’s Pub to BAM, Rockwood Music Hall to World Café Live, this kooky songstress, her stringed soul mate, and her six person band, will not be confined to one musical genre. Skillfully melding jazz, french pop, surf rock, funk and blues– sprinkled with a dash of comedy– Erin and her Cello are adoringly different.
Erin Hall, the cellist and singer-songwriter behind the group, attributes their music to her background in musical theater, her eclectic taste in
music, and her love of comedy. Citing musical influences that include Ray Charles, Cole Porter, Serge Gainsbourg, and comedian Gilda Radner, Erin’s audience would have to agree. The trick is– you really do need to see Erin and her Cello live. There is simply no act that marries great music and hilarious lyrics the way that Erin and her Cello do. All that– and you won’t be able to stop smiling, too.

“Erin is using her experiences and distinctive sense of humor to create a type of performance art that almost defies description.” – Anna Bengel, Backstage.com.
“Erin is a hilarious chic with a sense of humor as finely tuned as her cello…she wields her bow with the same wit and savvy that a satirist wields his pen!” -Doug Wright, Pulitzer Prize Winner, I Am My Own Wife.
