Erika is super fun to work with! You may recognize her from "American Idol" or I.D. Discovery Channel's #1 rated episode on series "I Married a Mobster" when she played VH1 Mobwife, Love Majewski. Her voice can be heard on hundreds of radio and tv ads as well. She will try anything, is creative, takes direction very well, will always communicate well and in a timely manner, and has a great ability to understand what a client wants even if they are not sure. She is also an award winning writer. If a client wants help she is always willing makes suggestions, help tweak copy to make it flow best and help showcase a brand name as much as possible. Effective results at the highest quality. A perfectionist who has a very commercial and comforting sound.

"Erika Schiff and the Miss'd America Dancers tore up the stage in a ferocious and steamy production number that bettered anything ever seen on an Oscars telecast. In fact, Ms. Schiff, one of those triple threat performers who kicks like Cyd Charisse, sings like a sultry siren and radiates contagious energy appeared to be rehearsing for her night at next year's MTV Video Awards show. Watch your back Rihanna.EDGE Magazine
--Mark Thompson, EDGE Magazine"
"Erika is definitely my top choice of Philadelphia singers to hire. To say her voice is...how can I say it...commercially perfect."Premier Radio Networks
“I've touted Erika Schiff 's singing abilities for so long, it might seem like she's a woman in her 60s rather than the sprightly twenty something that she is. "City Paper
"...an hour later, it had picked up, with more gays and energy, and hot live singing by Erika Schiff."The Village Voice
--Michael Musto, The Village Voice
