Erin Costelo is an artist who is mining the truth – through writing, arranging, producing and masterful live performance. With a voice unlike any other in Canada she has the ability to successfully float between genres and stages, her unwavering vision continuously offering the best sound and voice to a feeling, idea or story. With songs that sound like they were written by your heroes, she’s had the opportunity to open for heroes like ‪Mavis Staples, Dr. John and ‪Bettye Lavette and has recently performed with ‪Levon Helm’s Midnight Ramble Band.

Her latest, self-produced album Down Below, the Status Quo earned her an ECMA as well as a Nova Scotia Music Award for Solo Recording of the Year. It is a magical, moonlight-soaked reverie, filled with drama and intensity; in one moment a defiant cry and in the next a desperate whisper.  It has been described as “embodying the spirit of ‪Nina Simone” and “conjuring the ghost of ‪Donny Hathaway”.
