Congrats on the release! What was your inspiration when you were writing this project?
Released on February 14, 2023. The hell-bent singer out of Dallas, Texas, shares her artistry from past experiences and shows the resilience to bounce back from adversity and grow with grace in the face of a challenge.
Erin says, “‘Too Little Too Late’ was written for anyone that has gone through a difficult relationship and needed to find their way out. It was a very cathartic process for me to get these words out on the page. The song is a delicate dance working through the emotions of love, aversion, and finally freedom. I wanted to feel the weight of the drums to match my pain, the strum of the guitar to echo my shame, and the openness of the bridge to allow me to finally find my wings and soar.”
Collectively, Erin has grown to embrace “The Three Faces of Erin”: Music, Motherhood, and Entrepreneurship, as a way of finding what inspires her and finding pure inner happiness.
What is your vision for this song? What lessons would you like to impart with your audience?
“Too Little, Too Late” sets Erin apart as she shares her truthful perspective on heartbreak and broken dreams. As a mother of four, the singer-songwriter celebrates the journey she has been through and the ups and downs that led her to who she is today. “The weight of the wrong person in your life can be crippling. It can strip you of who you are supposed to be and clip your wings down from allowing you to fly.
The right partner lifts you up and soars next to you. The right partner walks with you hand in hand, making the hardest of times manageable and the best of times even that more sweet. We all deserve to be happy, whether that is in the right relationship with a partner or in the right relationship with ourselves,” adds Erin.
What is your favorite part of the song?
Produced by Terry Baker and Simeon Baker from Baker Brother’s Music, “Too Little, Too Late” speaks about the real fine line between love and hate. “We all deserve to be loved. We all deserve to find the right partner. My parents are celebrating their 52nd wedding anniversary this year! I celebrate love, I choose love, and I support love!
However, when one knows it is not the right fit, when you feel pulled down instead of lifted up, when it is physically draining, then one should choose personal happiness. Because you must be happy with yourself to find the right relationship. You have better relationships with everyone across the board when you are personally centered and free.
So this song’s for you! Say “Too Little, Too Late” to those that dim your light and don’t give you the freedom to soar to great heights. You are amazing and deserve nothing less,” says Erin.
Anything else we should know about it? Future releases?
Raised on country, blues, gospel, and rock ‘n’ roll, Erin finds her artistic creativity through her musical inspirations, such as Dolly Parton, Willie Nelson, George Strait, Shania Twain and Reba McEntire. Erin’s latest single and music video release, “Walking Country Song,” was featured as one of the Top Country Music Videos of the Week on Taste of Country, alongside other artists, including Carly Pearce, Cody Johnson, Carrie Underwood, Chase Rice, and Tenille Arts.
For the highly anticipated single and lyric video “Too Little, Too Late,” Erin takes solace in the fact that those mistakes and life lessons have all been part of her chaotic yet refined journey.
