Biography

Erin Helena Maureen Anttila (née Koivisto, born 2 July 1977 in Helsinki, Finland), better known as simply Erin, is a Finnish singer who rose to fame with the pop group Nylon Beat.

Early life

Erin Anttila is of Irish and Finnish descent, with an Irish mother and Finnish father. When she was three years old, her family moved to Ireland, where she began primary school. She finished school in Finland when the family returned three years later.

Career

At seventeen, she formed Nylon Beat with Jonna Kosonen. They became famous after their appearance on "Kiitorata" (Launch Pad), a television program presenting new Finnish solo artists and bands. The show was broadcast on MTV3, which was then Finland's most watched commercial TV channel. Nylon Beat participated in the Finnish Eurovision Song Contest qualifying rounds in 1998 and in 2000.

In 2004, Erin and former Nylon Beat guitarist Vesa Anttila, moved to Wicklow in Ireland for a year, and studied music. The couple married on 22 August 2005.

After returning to Finland in 2004, Erin started a solo career. In April 2008, she released her first solo single, "Sarah". Her debut album was originally scheduled for release in the autumn of 2008, but was delayed. After an abortive attempt to record the songs in English, the first Finnish language solo single, "Vanha nainen hunningolla" (lit. "an old woman gone wayward") was released on 31 January 2011. A full album, Hunningolla, was released on 25 May 2011.
