Erin Pierce's Profile

Erin Pierce

Hey all, I'm Erin! Lover of all things music, running, outdoors, and food. From getting to know local talent to researching the history of bands like The 1975, Moon Taxi, Tommy Castro and The Painkillers, and heading to local shows, I've really come to love the music scene we have here in Cincinnati. Favorite band you may ask? OneRepublic.
