Singer-songwriter Erin Hart moved to an island she’d never seen with a person she’d never met (but that’s a story for another day). Arriving on St. John in 2009 with a suitcase and a guitar, Erin quickly realized she’d found the home she didn’t know she was looking for.

The island’s natural beauty was clear, but what stood out most to her was the people. The “Love City” community immediately showed Erin kindness and encouragement. It was their support that allowed her the freedom and opportunity she needed to find her voice as an artist.

Over the years, IslandGirlMusic – Erin Hart has become a fixture in the St. John music scene, with most of her original tunes a nod to the lifestyle and lessons from her time in the Caribbean. Erin’s laid-back acoustic style and poignant lyrics embrace the idea of “Living. Loving. Growing,” her personal mantra inspired by island life.

Grand-prize winner of VI Music Prize 2019, Erin’s most notable public performances include Legends Music at Necker Cup 2019, VI Jam Fest 2019-2023, the 2018 Hit Makers and Rum Chasers songwriter event at Nashville’s City Winery, and featured live radio broadcasts in 2021 and 2022 on “Live Lixx” Ocean 98.1FM out of Ocean City, Maryland. While touring the U.S. and Caribbean, she’s entertained audiences on eleven different islands, and opened for prominent artists such as Joey Harkum, Ryan Montbleau, Skip Marley, and the Wheeland Brothers.

These days you can often find Erin sharing her songs and stories on a sailboat at sunset or performing at select venues around St. John. Regardless the setting, her gigs are sure to leave you feeling relaxed and uplifted.

If you are craving those good-feeling vibes in the comfort of your own home, tune into her livestream concerts on Facebook and Instagram, or follow IslandGirlMusic (yep, that’s all one word) on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music, YouTube, and iHeart Radio.
