Fierce, hypnotic and flirty.
Erin knows how to combine a hip rock groove with edgy vocals!

Erin excites us with a mix of rock, blues and hints of hip hop flow! “Flip” brings Erin’s dark and chill voice to the next level. I love her attitude and the wall of deep vocal layers. The music is beautifully captured and alive!

Hi Erin, welcome to VQS!
Tell us a little bit about you and your music.
Thank you for having me! My name is Erin Coburn. I am a touring rock artist, audio engineer, songwriter, and producer. I can be compared to The Black Keys, Cage The Elephant, Badflower, and Gary Clark Jr
I have been playing professionally since I was 12. I just turned 20 on June 3rd. I have three all original albums out and two new singles. I am proudly endorsed by Strandberg Guitars, Bad Cat Amps, DR Strings, Gravity Picks, and Westone Audio.
Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration for this new song?
Released May 21, 2021. Thank you! Before I wrote “Flip”, I realized that I had a lot of serious songs about “friend zoning” and breakups and situations like that, but I didn’t have a song that was flirty. “Flip” was that flirtatious, confident songwriter that I was excited to give to my fans!
What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
My vision for this song was to give people a song for their “I’m a bad b*tch” playlist.
This is that song that passes confidence on to the listeners.
I’d like my audience to walk away with that confidence to do what they want to do and go after what they want in life, whether it is a love interest or something else!
What is your favorite part of the song?
My favorite part of the song is the line that comes right out of the bridge! I wrote, recorded, and mixed this song and during my mix session I fondly remember editing that part.
The line goes “and we can flip flip flip flip flip to the side”. The “flip”s switch from left to right (you can definitely hear this in a car or headphones) and the “to the side” part has a cool second voice I layered in there using the SoundToys “Little AlterBoy Voice Manipulator” plugin. I geek out about that part every time I hear it!
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases?
If you want to hear this song live, I perform this song at my shows and also my weekly Facebook Livestreams along with more of my original music and a few covers! I am currently working on more music and announcements about that will be made on all of my social media.
