Erin Bennett is an award winning singer-songwriter/producer. Her live performances as former front woman for all female-power trio Syren have enthralled audiences and music journalists alike.
“Perfect, catchy pop. If this gets to the right ears it could be huge…”- Bruce Hotchkies (Scottish New Music Awards)
Erin’s combination of strong lyrics, a raw passionate performance and dynamic vocal range make for a charismatic and utterly captivating stage presence.
In 2010, Erin recorded and produced Syren album ‘Something Has To Separate’. The release was delayed due to the untimely passing of Erin’s wife and Syren drummer Joanne Heeley.
Erin has collaborated with UK DJ/Producer Darren Bailie (responsible for the smash-hit ‘Infinity2008’) for the re-working of the classic house track ‘Hide U’ by Kosheen. ‘Hide U 2012’, put together by Darren Bailie and Ronen Dahan, is available for download from ITunes.
Single ‘Never Give Up The Fight won the ‘Frankie Miller Songwriter of the Year’ award in 2012 (Scottish New Music Awards). Erin wrote the song in memory of Jo Heeley and her struggle with breast cancer.
That same year Erin temporarily resurrected Syren with new musicians when asked to open several shows for legendary prog-rock band Hawkwind.
On January the 16th 2013 Syren performed a last concert under the old name. With the new line-up as her backing band, a fresh format and a new album ‘Reflowered’, Erin continues under her own name ‘Erin Bennett.’
Erin Bennett is a strong supporter of RainSong Graphite Guitars, Elixir Strings, Hartke Amplification and Xotech Guitars.
