About Emily - acoustic singer for hire

Emily finds her Americana roots in “The Longest Night”

Timeless vocalist and songwriter Emily releases her latest single, “The Longest Night” on March 3rd. The song invokes the experience of sitting with someone in a dark moment, living through the pain together. The desperation and connection between two people comes through as they try just to make it through the night. Its simple, emotive production features a soaring Gretsch solo that gives the track its Americana home. Produced by Tony Serzo and co-written with Brenna Kupferman, “The Longest Night” brings a comfort that rides on the back of the soaring melody.

Emily (she/her) is channeling the femme troubadours of the past with wit and grace. An award-winning Folk/Americana Singer-Songwriter based in LA, Emily’s “mature and feminine voice” [UndergroundHK] captivates listeners— “she is singing with the intelligence and soul of someone beyond her years.” [solcofn] Listeners glimpse Joan Baez and Joni Mitchell, Laura Marling and Brandi Carlile in her timeless, deft vocals. Straddling the old and the new, her songs tell personal stories of struggle, growth, and joy. Emily commands song form by using and breaking traditional structures, and her training in classical voice, Byzantine chant, musical theater, and Greek folk music influence her creative process. Drawn in by her voice, you will find yourself mesmerized by the way that Emily makes you feel.

In 2018, she received the the Delwen and Genevieve Jones Award given to outstanding student musicians. Emily was a Concerto Aria finalist (2018) and has been recognized by NATS in multiple categories (2015, 2016). Her composition for Sarah Ruhl’s play, “Eurydice” was honored with a National Youth Arts award for Outstanding Original Music (2013) and she won Greeks Got Talent in 2011.

    Do not hesitate to book Emily, she is AMAZING! We booked Emily to perform at our engagement party in my parents’ backyard. Our special day would have been incomplete without Emily. From the very start during our pre-booking call, Emily was professional and kind. She really knows what she is talking about, it is VERY obvious that she loves what she does, and she really CARES about making your event amazing. Her voice is INCREDIBLE (I cannot overstate this!) – I even prefer her version of some songs over the originals. The vast majority of our guests commented on how amazing she is – even guests that I never thought would make such comments! We will definitely be booking her again!
