Recording Artist Erin Bode Joins MBU as Artist-in-Residence

Missouri Baptist University students will have an opportunity to study under local singer Erin Bode in conjunction with the University’s new commercial voice program. Bode is well-known for her ability to introduce jazz elements to pop music and classics, creating a fresh Americana sound. Along with the Erin Bode group, she will soon release her sixth album, “Be Still My Soul.”

The commercial voice program is an extension of the Music Performance major, allowing students to specialize in modern music. Bode will personally work with students to develop their voice and experience working in a recording studio.

“Erin Bode is going to be a very important part of this program — she has the recording experience,  performance experience and is in the business,” said Dr. Larry Smith, Chair of Fine Arts. “She knows how the business works and can share it with our students.”
