Eryn Allen Kane, just released her jazz-influenced EP entitled "Aviary: Act1." The EP, which is only four songs, consist of the normal jazz instruments, horns and pianos, with a not so normal vocalist. Being born in Detroit, and partly in Chicago, it is clear that Kane has brought her city influences into her music. Although being somewhat out of her teens, her voice seems to be one of experience and maturity. Check out her new EP on WNJR Radio 91.7 FM.
