Erin Bode is a lifelong Lutheran lady, a pastor’s daughter, and a celebrated jazz performer known for her pure voice and impressive phrasing and style. To date, Bode and her band have released eight albums and toured the United States, as well overseas to Italy, Japan, and South Africa.
In this inaugural “Conversations with Creatives” episode, Bode joins Sarah, Erin, Bri, and Rachel to share with them her about personal story, her musical career—and how her Lutheran faith has shaped both. She discusses how the global pandemic has affected professional musicians, explores her favorite hymns and songs, and opens up about her latest business venture: Your Song for Always, a creative collaboration with Victor Krauss offering custom songs, arrangements, and recordings for individuals and special occasions.
In the episode, listeners are treated to a luminous song performed by Bode: “The Moon Is Ours Tonight,” a poem written by Bob Hellrung for his wife Cheryl, who always dreamed it could be a love song for her. Used with permission.
