Singer-songwriter Erin Gignac is a talented, versatile guitarist and pianist whose contemporary folk music incorporates her vast influences as well as her own unique look at life and the craft of making music. At 24, Erin has been creating, performing and exploring music for over ten years. The professional edge with which Erin creates her captivating music was acquired through her 3 years of classical piano study at Cambrian College in Sudbury. Originally from Emeryville Ontario, Erin was part of several ensembles while in Sudbury; The Cambrian Jazz Ensemble, The Cambrian Choir, The Vintage Plague, Orange Skies and several other duos and small groups.
Some of Erin's highlighting performances while in Sudbury were at the MCTV Christmas Telethon, Sudbury SummerFest for Muscular Dystrophy, The TowneHouse, and her special guest appearance with Canadian duo, The Wild Strawberries. Erin has also performed in several Windsor/London venues such as the Lift Lounge, Beatniks, The Harrington MusicFest, the Press Club, Harvest Fest @ Two Creeks Conservation area, The Art Gallery of Windsor, The Brunswick Hotel, and The Aeolian Hall with Veda Hille.
In the Summer of 2001, Erin felt she was ready to begin recording a solo album of her own original material. The self-titled album, released in June 2002, includes material spanning her nearly ten year effort at the craft of song writing. Although she feels she's only skimmed the surface of many musical styles, this craftswoman's influences and ideas continue to evolve. Erin is excited to be back in Southwestern Ontario and is eagerly performing in the Toronto area promoting her debut CD.
Sudbury's Northern Lights radio CKLU 96.7fm, Leamington's CHRW 96.7fm and London's 94.7fm "For the folk" have featured songs from Erin's cd along with live interviews in July and August 2002. The Art Gallery of Windsor has asked Erin's permission to use 2 of her songs for video portraits on Joan Murray and her involvement with the Group of Seven that will be used for educational purposes. Erin is honored and hopes that her music will continue to be used for other artistic/educational films throughout the years to come.
CBC Review on Erin Gignac's self titled album "The debut release from singer/songwriter and pianist Erin Gignac is a musically sparkling effort. The superb 10 song set showcases all of Erin's strengths and even includes solo showcases on guitar and piano...definitely one of the finest indie releases to come this way in the last few years." Mark Rheaume, CBC Radio Toronto. Recently, Erin's CD was featured on CBC Radio Vancouver, Halifax, Windsor, Whitehorse, Charlottetown, Kelowna, Sudbury, Thunder Bay, Regina's Mighty Shore's, Toronto's Fresh Air and Ottawa's Window of Opportunity.
While constantly discovering new aspects, forms of music, and with over 50 original songs, Erin continues to create and perform her inspiring music to captivated audiences.
