Erin Hill is a harpist & singer with a #1 album on the Billboard world chart. She's played & sung with Enya, Kanye West, moby, Cyndi Lauper, Jewel, a-ha, Levon Helm, Sinead O'Connor, and for two first ladies; she's appeared on Broadway, TV and film; and she's played solo at The Royal Albert Hall. She is also known as The Pretty White Girl on Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show."

Erin is known at the Ritz-Carlton on Central Park South in NYC for her rock 'n' roll arrangements on solo harp, playing and singing everything from Sinatra, David Bowie, The Beatles, Bruce Springsteen, Stevie Wonder, and Neil Young to Prince, Lana del Rey, John Legend, and Lady Gaga. Another specialty of hers is Celtic music; her Celtic album Four Leaf Clover hit #1 on the Billboard World chart in 2009. In 2016, Cleopatra Records released her albums "Harp Town" and "Christmas Harp," which are available on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, etc. and feature Erin's harp and voice arrangements of songs from Sinatra and The Beatles to Radiohead, Rihanna, U2, Alicia Keys, and Adele.

Feel free to check Erin out the Internet Movie Database for her film & television credits.

Erin plays for all types of events in the New York City area and beyond: weddings, corporate functions, cocktail hours, concerts, house concerts, parties, etc. She can play either Solo Harp or she can sing and play, whichever is preferred. She can also perform as a duo, trio, or group with other instruments (flute, cello, violin, etc.). She does all styles of music (including classical, of course), but she specializes in celtic, jazz, opera, and pop (50's, 60's, 70's, 80's on up to Lady Gaga, Adele, John Legend, etc.). Her concert harp is electric, and she has a small amp she can bring so that the sound can be adjusted to as loud or soft as needed.

Erin has played harp at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and for the US Open Tennis Championships. She was featured in an HBO "Game of Thrones" promo, playing the "Game of Thrones" theme on her harp, and she is the voice & harp of Tafne for the upcoming Android video game "The Legacy of Barubash." USA Today premiered Erin's music video "Lookout, Science" as an exclusive, and she won an Independent Music Award for her album "Girl Inventor." Erin did Original Music and Sound Design for the Drama Desk Award-nominated "That Play: a Solo Macbeth."

Erin toured with the Lincoln Center "South Pacific" as harpist and pianist, and is the harpist on the new soundtrack for "The Fantasticks" on Martha Wainwright's self-titled debut album, on various commercials (Dunkin' Donuts, etc.) and on MTV2's "Wonder Showzen." She's a singer, songwriter and musician on the Dream Jam Band's major label debut on EMI. As a voice-over artist she's been heard on commercials from Coca-Cola, Comcast, and to Play-Doh, Walmart and Dunkin' Donuts.

Erin was in the Tim Robbins film "Cradle Will Rock" (and appears on the soundtrack alongside Eddie Vedder & PJ Harvey); HBO's "The Chris Rock Show;" Comedy Central's "Chappelle's Show;" and PBS's "American Masters." Erin's band was a Dragon*Con house band in 2012, playing her original pop music at the world's largest Science Fiction & Fantasy convention. Both of her sci-fi music videos, "Giant Mushrooms" and "Lookout, Science," were part of the Dragon*Con Independent Film Festival 2012.

As a stage actor and singer, she was in the original Broadway casts of "Titanic," Sam Mendes' "Cabaret," and "Urinetown" and has twice been part of the Sundance Theater Lab. She was seen most recently in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" at Classic Stage Company in NYC alongside Bebe Neuwirth and Christina Ricci (Newsday called her "the dangerously enjoyable Erin Hill").

Erin toured with and opened for a-ha in 2008 in Europe and London, where she played solo at the Royal Albert Hall (see the interview with Erin on a-ha's official site). Erin is also a huge Beatles fan, and performs regularly with Jimmy Vivino (of Conan O'Brien) and Will Lee (of Letterman) in The Fab Faux.

Erin played at our wedding yesterday from the ceremony to cocktail hour, and played and sang all through the reception. We loved her harp renditions and vocals to many popular songs, both intimate and upbeat. Guests told us in person and have been texting since then that they thought the harp and trio was a great classy touch, better then the traditional band or DJ- and we agree! We were able to mingle with guests all night without the music being overbearing. Erin was also able to play a traditional Italian dance song (Tarantella) on request, and killed it!!!!! Thanks so much Erin!

We absolutely loved Erin & so did all our guests.She is not only amazing at playing the harp but has a beautiful singing voice.We hired her to play at my daughter's communion party & everyone loved her.She wasn't recommended to me I found her on gig masters, read her reviews, looked at her videos,read her background & went with my gut feeling.She was perfect.No other harpist I looked at sang & I wasn't looking for a singer but when I saw that Erin sang also we thought that would be great.My daughter loved that she learned a few of her favorite songs & sang them also. I liked that she played up to date music.I would definitely recommend hiring her. She was excellent.

Erin is a remarkable musician and entertainer. If you have never experienced "harp karaoke" Erin will give you the chance. Another wonderful talent Erin has is the ability to read the pulse of the party. In the beginning, her music was largely and perfectly played as background. As our guests gravitated toward her she played their requests. (She has a remarkable reservoir of music at her fingertips and will even learn pieces before the event on request.) By the end of the night Erin WAS the party, each step growing organically from its predecessor. Whatever the event, I can enthusiastically recommend Erin and her magical harp (and beautiful voice) to you.
