Two rival international spies from across the globe discover they've moved in next door to each other and form an uneasy, love-hate frenemy state. When mysterious ninjas attack in a nefarious plot to overturn the world, the duo joins forces only to discover secrets about their pasts, their futures, and their hearts.

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.

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.
