Erin Bode, one of the St. Louis region’s brightest and most celebrated jazz vocalists, has eight studio albums in her repertoire, including the latest release available on both disc and vinyl, Here and Now. Bode has opened for Michael Buble, Jamie Cullum, Chris Botti and other high-profile jazz musicians, and has gained national exposure through appearances on various programs including CBS’s Second Cup Café, Fox News’ Fox and Friends, and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion. The Erin Bode Group has performed throughout the United States, Europe, and Japan offering a fresh mix of pop, folk, and jazz. She has garnered much critical praise for her pure voice, perfect pitch, and impressive phrasing and style. It is this talent, coupled with her reluctance to accept classification as a purely jazz vocalist that has led to reviews hailing her as “someone you won’t forget” and comparing her sound to the likes of Eva Cassidy and Nora Jones. While Bode got her start singing standard jazz, her recent projects feature original material by the artist, and showcase her love of poetry with songs that are rich in harmonic and timbral texture.
