Erin McKeown, one of my current favorite artists is living in Maine. This Massachusetts native is in Parsonsfield, Maine recording in the farm house of her keyboard player. NPR had a great interview with her that aired yesterday.
This is what her website has to say about her biography.
"From elegant pop to balls-out rock,sweet electronics to witty swing, Erin McKeown has packed a ton of music into her young career. With 5 albums, 2 EPs, and numerous soundtracks and compilations to her credit, the 29-year-old songwriter and multi-instrumentalist hasn't stopped for a breather in the last 10 years. Along the way she has averaged 200 shows a year and garnered the praise of fans and critics alike. McKeown's newest release is Lafayette, a rollicking evening with her six-piece Little Big Band."
