One of the goals of Gender Amplified is to generate exposure for young women producers who are on the verge of greatness. When I sent a mass email to the Clive Davis Institute (New York University) in search of female students interested in being a part of the Gender Amplified movement, it took Erin all of ten minutes to respond. Her hustle, passion for production and enthusiasm for her craft are refreshing and extremely impressive for someone only 22 years old. She is a skilled producer/engineer and knows her way around the recording studio. Check out this interview as Erin talks about her music, her gear, and her plans for her future.
