Erin Pope began singing and song writing during seeding time on the family farm in the Eastern Wheatbelt when the tractor radio gave out. She soon decided that learning to play the guitar would complete the picture. Two and a half years later, in between university studies and traveling, she now plays at events in the Wheatbelt and local venues in Fremantle. Tales of Erin’s backpacking adventures through Vietnam, Nepal and Ethiopia come out in her music, which is a blend of acoustic, folk and blues. What Erin loves most about gigs where she grew up is that it’s a full-blown family affair with relatives and neighbours rallied up to gather a crowd. She says having the opportunity to play for people who have been a major part of her life is pretty special. Erin is passionate about sharing stories from home, both the good and the bad, with mates in the city to offer insight into the rural way of life. She says, sadly, car crashes seem to be a big part of that. She chose to become a WAMbassador because she wanted to share a road safety message with her community that even if you’re not directly involved in a car crash, it doesn’t mean you don’t feel the impact. Writing songs helps her process those feelings and it’s something she can share with her family, mates and community.
