Erin McKeown is a musician, writer, and producer known internationally for her prolific disregard of stylistic boundaries. Her brash and clever electric guitar playing is something to see. Her singing voice is truly unique – clear, cool, and collected. A familiar presence on NPR and the BBC, McKeown’s songs have also appeared on numerous television shows and commercials.

Erin McKeown said about her new release:
‘in light of the recent shootings at the LGBTQ+ night club in orlando, it is with a mixture of joy and sorrow that i announce my brand new song, “THE QUEER GOSPEL”. it was written before last weekend’s violence and has now taken on an extra urgency for me in light of the recent loss of life.’

Love us as we are
See us and we’re holy
In this shall we shall ever be
Glorious and free

A beautiful song that should give cause for reflection,  as always Erin nails it.

I love this song, and the video. Very cool, how did they do that?
Singing forward but paint on/off head backwards, tricky.

Unless she can sing backwards?

I was about to quit when I came across this gem. Man this young lady sure can play that guitar. Excellent performance.
