Erin Ivey and The Finest Kind
Erin Ivey is Austin's Urban Folk darling. Her latest album, Broken Gold, is a groundbreaking, fan-funded collaboration with R&B/dub trio The Finest Kind.
Broken Gold was named the #1 album of 2011 by KUT's Kevin Connor, Top 10 of 2011 by Texas Music Magazine and the Austin Chronicle, and received 5 stars in Austin Monthly. KCRW's Valida Carroll named Erin Ivey one of the Top 10 Artists to Watch and Texas Music Magazine chose her as one of their 2011 Artists of the Year.
Austin locals will also recognize Erin from the infectious "Take Me to Reids" TV and radio ad campaign, the cover of Austin Monthly magazine's "Most Beautiful Women" issue, and her "Live at The Long Center" performance broadcast on Music Entertainment TV.
