One of the Midwest’s most prolific and passionate songwriters, May Erlewine continues to share her gift for writing songs of substance that feel both new and soulfully familiar. Her lyrics offer a window into her heartbreak, her empowerment, and her emboldened spirit. These lyrics, which are really stories crafted through May’s unique experiences, are rooted in wisdom, joy, sorrow, simplicity, and love. Musically, she carries the songwriter’s torch through many genres and sonic landscapes. May considers her career in the music industry as a service-oriented one and uses her platform for positive change. She stresses the importance of environmental advocacy, social justice, creative empowerment, and community building as necessary work in our world. May’s body of work has become an anthem and an example of why we need to listen to women, empower women, and why we need to hear their stories. May’s work has been spotlighted by Rolling Stone and NBC’s “The Voice” and covered by countless artists.
This performance will be in celebration of her new record, The Real Thing. The album produced by Theo Katzman, is a collection of songs performed live in a room, deep in the Manistee National Forest. Released as a part of Theo’s new record label, The Real Thing is just that, real people, making real music, together in a room.
