and her longtime musical partner and husband, and Iris's co-creator, Seth Bernard, will be singing out front.
As half of the duo Seth and May, Erlewine has played at most folk venues and festivals throughout the state and recorded five joint albums. She's also issued eight solo albums and is a longtime member of the Earthwork musicians' collective. Audiences have grown to love her pure, fresh, unaffected voice, her multi-instrumental accompaniments, and perhaps above all, her thoughtful, poetic songwriting. And it's the songwriting that is front and center on this new album. May writes in an email, which she ends with a winking emoticon, "The entire record was recorded while she (Iris) was in the womb, and most of the songs were written this year as well. You can hear her influence ;)"
