Well it looks like she did move on to other things. Thanks to commenter Kenn Guilstorf for for doing what I should have had the brain power to do myself. Erin’s a photography and makeup blogger now and you can see what she does at www.erinevermore.net. And hey… she likes Game of Thrones, Dragon Age and Tomb Raider! Female rockers (former in this case) who game are tops. Like Cristina Scabbia.
Erin Evermore! Represent! Rock on. \m/
This is a rather off-topic posting for my blog. Who is Erin Evermore you ask? I digress…
I have a one-year old daughter who I give nightly baths. I bring my iPod Touch and we listen to music while bathing. I decided to select Erin Evermore’s music. So, it got me thinking, what happened to Erin Evermore?
Who is Erin Evermore?
Erin was a New York City based indie (pop-rock) singer who had a [well-produced… by Mike Chapman] demo LP called Babyphetamine.
I used to visit mp3.com a lot back around 1999-2001 because they had great indie music for free – guilt free (this was during the Napster Free-For-All). I found some really good artists like a rap group called HaLFBrEEd, German and Austrian goth-metal bands Flowing Tears and Darkwell and a little-known goth metal band from Italy who went by the name Lacuna Coil. This is the place where I first heard Erin Evermore.
After hearing “Girls Love Sex” and “If I Was A Stripper”, which were on her mp3.com page, I went to her site, erinevermore.com (no longer in existence) and got in touch with her. I wanted to heard more from her and she was kind enough to reply. During our exchanges, she sent me an autographed copy (via CD-R) of her demo LP. It was awesome stuff and nothing too serious. Unfortunately, I no longer have the CD (a long and really stupid story and I’ll leave it at that because it pisses me off to no end…) but, as you already know, I ripped the album into mp3s.
My favorite song off the album was “Did He Do It To You”. With her permission, I used it for a Flash intro for Gophanet. The intro was pretty crappy (I sucked and still do suck at Flash) but, it was an honor to use the song.
Erin and her backing band apparently opened for Duran Duran for a short time. Here’s a mention of a concert in Dallas, TX (OMG Tripod is still up!!). There was a scathing review by a Duran Duran fan who was apparently upset they had to wait to see them (if you search long enough, you will find more of the same).
I’m not the only person (see comment under “Fan Posts”) who has asked what happened to Erin. There’s even an artist page for her on Facebook. The video for “Girls Love Sex” used to be on YouTube but, it’s no longer there. I guess after unsuccessfully starting her music career she went back into private life.
So, as a fan, I dedicate this blog posting to her. Rock on Erin… wherever you are!
