Erin Gaffney - "23 (ft. Melodious Monk)"
Erin Gaffney's autobiographic track "23" is out now with an Original Version and an ItzNoReal RMX.
“23” was originally written as homework for a songwriting class. The night before the assignment was due, Erin drew inspiration from how she felt being twenty-three: when life is so uncertain, and you don’t really know what you’re doing, and all you can do is follow your heart. Then she sat down on her bed and penned “23” in less than an hour – the words just seemed to flow onto the page so easily.
Erin Gaffney always had a passion for music. When she was in elementary school, she got the starring role in her school’s production of Annie, and sang the closing song, “Tomorrow.” After receiving great feedback, Erin knew she wanted to continue singing. In high school, while continuing with her private voice lessons, she took photography classes and became interested in the visual arts, which now serves as a source of inspiration for her. After she was accepted into Berklee College of Music, she began to write her own music, and put up song covers on YouTube.
Erin's style of choice is pop/alternative music. She credits Lady Gaga, Ariana Grande, and Billie Eilish as her biggest influences. Her voice has been described by her peers and instructors as having a "healing" and "young" quality, with a "pure tone...that sounds like a Disney Princess." This works out for Erin, who, coincidentally, always wanted to be a Disney Princess!
In May of 2019, she completed her Bachelor of Music degree in Professional Music, specializing in songwriting, performance, and music production.
