She’s played solo at The Royal Albert Hall, and is also known as “The Pretty White Girl who Sings Dave’s Thoughts” from Comedy Central’s Chappelle’s Show (she also wrote the music for the sketch).

Erin’s cover of “Eleanor Rigby” has been heard on SiriusXM The Beatles Channel, and its music video has won awards in over 50 film festivals around the world.  Erin was in the Original Broadway casts of Titanic, Urinetown, and Cabaret, and originated the role of Ilse in Spring Awakening with Duncan Sheik.  She has been featured in the HBO documentary Taylor Mac’s 24-Decade History of Popular Music, on the new Gossip Girl, Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing, The Chris Rock Show, PBS’s American Masters, The Tony Awards, Late Night with David Letterman, in Tim Robbins’ film Cradle Will Rock, and by HBO in a Game of Thrones promo playing the Game of Thrones theme on her harp.

Her Girl Inventor album features Erin’s original harp-based sci-fi pop songs, such as “Giant Mushrooms” and “Lookout, Science,” whose video was premiered by USA Today.   The album also won an Independent Music Award. Erin’s album Harp Town features her innovative harp & vox arrangements of pop and rock songs, from Radiohead, Roxy Music, and Rihanna to Edith Piaf, Smashing Pumpkins, and Sinatra.

Erin’s tribute shows with her 10-piece band include: Total Eclipse of the Harp: The 80’s!, Harp Oddity: The Music of David Bowie, The Music of Kate Bush: Night-Scented Harp, Harp Tripper: The Music of The Beatles, and That 70’s Harp. 

She performs her original sci-fi songs as a house band at Dragon Con; she played harp several years for the US Open Tennis Championships; and she sang & played regularly at The Peninsula Hotel, The Plaza Hotel, and the Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South in NYC.  Her wide range of styles includes pop, rock, jazz standards, country, Celtic/Irish (her Celtic album hit #1 on the Billboard world chart), and opera.

Erin toured with the Lincoln Center South Pacific as harpist and pianist, and is the harpist on the new soundtrack for The Fantasticks, on Martha Wainwright’s self-titled debut album, on various commercials (Dunkin’ Donuts, Pure Leaf Tea, etc.) and on MTV2’s Wonder Showzen.  She’s a singer, songwriter and musician (harp, electric bass, keyboards) on the Dream Jam Band’s major label debut on EMI.  As a voice-over artist and jingle singer she’s been heard on commercials from Coca-Cola, Comcast, Tide and Match.com to Play-Doh, Walmart and Dunkin’ Donuts.

In the film Clear Blue Tuesday, she is a composer, screenwriter, and actor.  The New York Times said: “Erin Hill, as a giddy, harp-playing Trekker, is a standout… The best and funniest scene in the film is Ms. Hill’s, a first date that looks promising until the conversation turns to the relative merits of Star Trek: Voyager…..” 

In addition to her Broadway shows, Erin has twice been part of the Sundance Theater Lab in Utah, and was in A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Classic Stage Company in NYC alongside Bebe Neuwirth and Christina Ricci (Newsday called her “the dangerously enjoyable Erin Hill”).  Erin was the musical director for Lil’s 90th at Long Wharf Theater, and she also did Original Music and Sound Design for the Drama Desk Award-nominated “That Play: a Solo Macbeth.” 

Lastly, she also juggles and is an expert at walking on her hands (one of which can be seen in the film Clear Blue Tuesday, and the other on The Rosie O’Donnell Show, the 52nd Annual Tony Awards, and Late Night with David Letterman).
