In 2009, Alan Neal of CBC’s ‘Bandwidth’ exclaimed “I think I’ve officially found my new favorite Canadian voice!”
With an ironclad backbone and a ladylike approach to life's little obstacles, Miss Emily forges together her very own brand of vocally intense soulful tunes.
She’s gone from living out of her car to playing 250 shows a year in the Eastern Ontario region alone. Heading out on a new venture Miss Emily will release her debut record in 2010.
Her debut single, ‘THE SELL-OUT’ (333 Music), is a desire to venture beyond the stereotypical confines of the female singer-songwriter genre. The Prince Edward County, ON native blends the meaty, gritty, old-school soul music sound with the more aggressive attitudes associated with rock.
Her show is like watching a flurry of high performance ninja kicks, all while keeping her pretty yellow dress in decent order. That's a hard feat to accomplish, especially when you're belting out note after perfect note.
