Amazing vocals. Funky dance moves. A true all-around performer! This rising star has proven herself a force to be reckoned with and brings an exciting flavor to the existing pool of teen talent. Erin Jennae (born Erin Jennae Burrise), from Stockton, CA, has all of the makings of a sought after artist and is no doubt a refreshing newcomer, with youth and cross-over appeal on her side. Her exotic good looks come from her Filipino mother and African American father and her dynamic stage presence come from both natural charisma mixed with a lot of hard work.
Currently signed to independent label Rite Track Records, Erin Jennae 16, has had the privilege of being born to parents with singing backgrounds (her father, J.D. Burrise Jr., is an accomplished singer/songwriter and now her Executive Producer), which has allowed for her talents to be discovered and fostered at an early age. "Actually," the songstress says, "My parents didn''t want me to initially follow this path. My father knew the highs and lows of this industry very well and I guess he was being ''concerned Dad''." But in time, it was evident that her talents and passion for singing and performing were not going to end. So, they decided to take the bull by the horns and guide her toward a singing career that Erin could flourish in while maintaining integrity.
Producer and songwriter J.D. Burrise III, aka Buggs(brother) states, "We''ve known about her talents for years; it was just a matter of time before maturity and versatility would catch up. We knew one day the time would be right." And indeed that day has come. Whether performing for youth or the more mature crowd, Erin Jennae leaves audiences wanting more. Erin''s appreciation for musicianship runs deep and varied, from jazz great Nat King Cole and mother of soul Aretha Franklin, to such contemporaries as Alicia Keys, Jill Scott, Missy Elliott, Common and Aaliyah.
Erin Jennae''s aspirations extend beyond the entertainment realm, with goals of becoming an Olympian as a track and field competitor. As a freshman, Erin broke high school records in the high jump and is an accomplished basketball and tennis player as well. "Like singing, athletics is just in my blood. My parents and siblings have been very involved in sports and as the baby, I kind of had no choice (fortunately)."
Erin''s recently completed debut CD "Have You Seen Me", released in May 2005 showcases her versatility and promises to have numerous hit singles under its belt by the end of its tour, leading with the dance hit "Not Feeln'' You." Her CD is a perfect mix of R&B and pop with a taste of hip hop and offers strong lead vocals and harmonies all performed by Erin Jennae. "I feel blessed to have an opportunity to fulfill my dream, and at such a young age. I just hope that people can find themselves in the music that I put out and have fun with it!" She has a real flare for creating her own three- and four-part harmonies, a task sometimes difficult for even seasoned professionals. And with her delightfully positive and professional attitude, it is easy to see why success is soon to be nipping at her heals!
