2009 Asbury Music Top Female Vocalist
A sophisticated cocktail of sound fusing jazz , blues, and country with a splash of Motown and a whole lotta soul!
What are others saying about Eryn Shewell and 4th & Broadway?
“3.5 stars out of 4 - Eryn’s latest record is like a time machine that gracefully glides between two worlds and creates an utterly timeless experience that will grow on you with each and every listen." Gary Wein – Music Journalist (USA)
A recent press article described Eryn as having "the power to woo audiences into an amused silence", with a seductive range changing voice,,," "...bending and moving to the music, especially in tunes where her voice trails off in jam band moments of pleasant belting-meets-screaming...when songs later her voice is soft as butter and seems to roll off and melt into the air around you." Lisa Rich, Backbeat (USA)
“I genuinely cannot believe this great musical talent is not signed to a major record label. Are they deaf or just plain stupid? Eryn is light years ahead of so many of the signed artists out there.” - Tom Evans, Palreviews (UK)

“…the fusion of genres is this CD's greatest strength. The songs Eryn writes are so strong that they transcend the standard blues, jazz and soul we hear so often and Eryn always adds something of her very own. The songs get better every time you listen…”  Ron Bervoets, Rootstime (Belgium)
4th & Broadway, Eryn Shewell's sophomore album released January 2, 2009, which has already received rave reviews both locally and in the UK and Europe, continues to showcase her ability to create music that is an inviting fusion of genres blending blues, soul, country and pop into a unique yet somehow comfortable and familiar sound.
Eryn began performing her original music in 2007, and now tours and performs nationally showcasing her original compositions with a few of her favorite cover songs thrown in for fun.  Eryn has performed at legendary venues including the Stone Pony, The Cutting Room, Bluebird Café, and, Six Flags theme parks, as well as popular clubs from Nashville to NJ and New Orleans to NY winning over the crowds with the power and sweet sound of her voice.
