Erin Carere is an actress, screenwriter, singer and comedienne. Think Jennifer Aniston meets Barbra Streisand meets Nora Ephron meets Lucille Ball, make her brunette- I mean light auburn- I mean dark blonde- I mean (see star)* and you’ve got Erin.
Raised on the banks of the Mississippi River in a small town in Minnesota, she attended the University of Minnesota and Manhattan School of Music. She toured both the US and Europe with bands, cabarets, and as a solo performer before moving to Los Angeles, where she performed her one woman shows and stand up comedy alongside singing. She was signed to an Indie music label and named “Best Female Performer of 2010” after performing at SXSW. She has won awards for singing, composing, producing, and as a playwright. She is a member of SAG-AFTRA, AEA, and ASCAP.
As an actress, she most recently booked a series regular role as LA Police Detective Jo Frazier in a new narrative-procedural hybrid, Emergency: LA.
She also recently completed principle filming on the PILOT EPISODE of her own series, a will they / won’t they rom com with a spy parody twist**, Spy V Spia,which she co-wrote with partner in life, love, and Hollywood, Carlo Carere. Erin and Carlo are also the stars, and after a successful KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN in which they raised $20,000, alongside director Christopher N Rowley, producer Gretchen Landau, and DP Janine Sides, principle filming was completed December 2017. Erin plays an opera singing spy who shares a love-hate frenemy-ship with her handsome Italian rival. ...

Another script, In Three, a romantic dramedy about a woman with Stage 3 cancer, has placed as a quarter- or semi-finalist in two screenwriting competitions so far, the WeScreenplay Diverse Voices Contest and the ScreenCraft Comedy contest.
Although Erin has sung some of the most beautiful music in the world including the beloved “Flower Duet” from the opera Lakme and classical-pop crossover hit “Time to Say Goodbye” (her YouTube video for this song has over 1,000,000 hits), she is always looking for a way to incorporate both high quality art with broad commercial appeal.
