Who is Emily? 

I am a 21 year old soul/pop/singer-songwriter based out of Orlando, FL. I grew up singing in the choir, playing drums behind bands, and strumming my guitar at wine bars. After moving to Orlando to begin college, I started working at a live music venue (Summer of 2010). I have since been inspired by many of the artists that have stopped by- Marc Cohn, Joshua Radin, Joe Bonamassa, Marc Broussard, Michelle Branch, and many more.

The Journey So Far.

After being surrounded by live music, I decided to take on songwriting/performing on a more serious level. My first batch of songs (EP "Potential") was released this past November 2011, and it was certainly a huge step to go ahead and show people these (first) songs I'd written.

I have certainly had an amazing ride so far and never expected to gain the acceptance and feedback that I have. Playing my music for people who truly enjoy it has been an incredible experience- and certainly something that I never imagined to be a possibility. I've also had the honor of opening up for artists such as: Parachute, Michelle Branch, Boyce Avenue, Jeff Daniels, and Brandi Carlile. Thirteen year old me would have never believed this. 

So, What Now? 

I am a 21 year old (almost graduated) college student. If I sat here and tried to convince you that I know all of the answers about what's to come and what I know for sure- I would be lying. All I know is this. I love to write songs. I love to play music. I love to sing. I've accomplished a lot in the past 1-2 years (with the help of the wonderful people around me), and have felt the magic of what it's like to share this music. I'm going to continue to explore this path and I hope that you can come with me for the ride. Reaching my $12,000 goal would mean so much . It would solidify and validate my progress so far as a songwriter and artist. It would also mean that I don't have to go broke to record an album! 

I know this isn't a charity, and I realize I am not raising money to help fight wars or cure a disease. But, I do know that music is one of the most powerful things in this world. Please, join me in creating the record.
