Directed by Ryan Finn, the group is made up of 1/3 graduating seniors, Class of 2022. These students, along with the other 16 members, perform each year at the Albuquerque Jazz Festival and regularly receive the highest rating of Superior at the event.
Singer-songwriter Eryn Bent has been enchanting audiences since age 14, with her powerhouse vocals and honest, gritty songwriting.
Born and raised in Montana, Eryn has deep, Western roots that shine through her songwriting. Marrying emotive lyrics and moving melodies, her autobiographical originals explore several genres, but cling strongly to the authenticity of folk and traditional country. While New Mexico has become her home base, she has played all over the West coast, forever planting her musical magic in the hearts of her audience.
Eryn is a trained vocalist with years of private training under her belt, which gives her the incredible range and ability to showcase her vocals in many evocative ways. She sings it, she means it, and you'll feel it in your bones.
