ABOUT EMILY EARLE: Emily Earle is a mix of heartfelt lyrics and contagious melodies. Influenced by the distinctive places she grew up, Emily combines Texas grit with Colorado cool. After graduating from Berklee College of Music, she made her living playing on subway platforms in between uptown trains at Rockefeller Station in NYC. One afternoon, while playing the subway, she caught the ear of a television producer who asked her to sing on NBC’s The Voice in Los Angeles. After the show she picked up her things and moved to Nashville to write, record, and tour. Roughing it at times, she often took late-night Greyhound buses between cities to avoid airline and hotel costs, she proudly likes to call those her first solo “bus tours”.
Since then Emily has had songs cut by artists including Steve Earle and Walker McGuire. She has shared the stage with Robert Earle Keen, Shawn Camp, Steve Earle, Aaron Watson, Tanya Tucker, John Michael Montgomery, and more. She will be releasing new music this summer.
