Erin Durant is a Brooklyn based singer-songwriter originally from New Orleans. Durant has made two EPs and released her first full-length, Blueberry Mountain, on Flying Moonlight Records Nov 1, 2016. Erin can be seen performing around the USA with her guitar and 232-pound piano. She explained to the NY Times - “The kind of music that I play” — spare, gospel-tinged, redolent of old parlors — “is more suited to a real piano.” Erin recorded “Kind Woman” with Instant Records for the Instant Love series in 2017.

In her own words:

What does INSTANT LOVE project mean to you?

 Why did you choose to record your song “Kind Woman”? 

“I first heard the song Kind Woman a few years ago after borrowing my dad’s car to drive from Oregon to California. There were only a couple of cds in the car so I listened to them a lot and Buffalo Springfield was one. Through the process of covering the song, I came to realize that for me, the love song resided in the melody.” - Erin Durant

Lyrics


"Kind Woman" written by Richie Furey for Buffalo Springfield

I got a good reason for loving you
It's an old fashioned sign
I kinda get the feelin' like mmm you know when
I fell in love the first time.

Kind woman
Won't you love me tonight
The look in your eyes

Kind woman
Don't leave me lonely tonight
Please say it's all right

Remember once before you're hearing the old folks say
Love's an ageless old rhyme
But now a days you know the sayin' depends so much on
The kind of woman that you find

Kind woman
Won't you love me tonight?
The look in your eyes

Kind woman
Don't leave me lonely tonight
Aah you say it's all right

Kind woman
Won't you love me tonight?
The look in your eyes

Kind woman
Don't leave me lonely tonight
Please say it's all right
