The Steel Wheels - Louise Mosrie opens - at the me and thee coffeehouse
The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival. The Steel Wheels is an amalgamation of hard work and easy rapport. The band is renowned for their raw energy and chemistry on stage, where they often cluster tightly around a single microphone to adorn Trent Wagler's unmistakable tenor with bell-clear four-part harmonies inspired by their shared Mennonite heritage. Add to this Eric Brubaker's lively and evocative fiddle, Brian Dickel's grounded yet buoyant upright bass, and Jay Lapp's signature mandolin style, and it's no surprise that The Steel Wheels have enthralled the contemporary Americana scene. Their breakout album, Red Wing, garnered critical praise and enjoyed tremendous success on the radio. It spent 13 weeks on the Americana Music Association's Top 40 Chart, where it reached the number 15 slot, and cracked the Euro Americana Chart top 10. Red Wing ranked 70th out of the top 100 Americana albums of 2010 and second out of all independent releases (Americana Music Association). The Steel Wheels were nominated for five Independent Music Awards in 2010, with "Nothing You Can't Lose" taking top honors as Best Country Song. The Steel Wheels continue to take the Americana scene by storm with their latest album, Lay Down, Lay Low, which lingered for 10 weeks on the AMA's Top 40 Chart. NPR named "Rain in the Valley" their Song of the Day, marveling that the "heavy hymn [] is sparse and dense all at once." Already celebrated as the darlings of Merlefest 2012, the band looks forward to further accolades during a phenomenal festival line-up. As the band thrives, so do their partnerships with local businesses, artisans, and charitable organizations. The values portrayed in their musicdevotion to roots, community, and familyare a way of life for The Steel Wheels, and this is reflected in everything from production process and booking agency to merchandise and touring. For the past three years, they have performed an annual SpokeSongs bicycle music tour, during which band members tow their instruments, equipment, and merchandise from one gig to another via bicycle and blog about their adventures. Last year's tour spanned 11 days, 550 miles, and 10 shows. This year's tour included multiple charity rides, such as Lose The Training Wheels, Charity Ride for Kids, and Wheels Up for Cory. The band's merchandise represents a host of grassroots connections to people and businesses. Lucas Roasting Company, located just outside of Harrisonburg, created "Halfway to Heaven" dark roast coffee in honor of their friends The Steel Wheels. Blue Mountain Brewery, located on Afton Mountain in Virginia, hosted the band when they were just getting started and now sells a "Steel Wheels ESB." The Livery's master brewer rode with the band on their second bike tour and, soon after, created their "Steel Wheels Stout." The band's T-shirts are made in downtown Harrisonburg, and a potter who is a childhood friend of Jay's makes their mugs. Each business is local for the band, and each product is intimately woven into their narrative. The Steel Wheels are proof that music remains a viable and sustaining force for connection in our world. "What sets The Steel Wheels from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia apart from many bands is the combination of their stellar instrumentals, accentuated by the one of a kind lead vocal of Wagler, and keenly supported by strong harmonies. Eric Brubaker on fiddle, Jay Lapp on mandolin, and Brian Dickel on bass weave in and out intricately throughout this record, painting vivid imagery which flows effortlessly, just teasing the lyrics enough to allow them to resonate within you." Country Standard Time -------- Louise Mosrie opens for The Steel Wheels: 2012 Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriting Contest Top 3 2011 Telluride Festival Troubadour Songwriting Contest Runner-up 2011 Voted "Most Wanted to Return" Falcon Ridge Emerging Artist #1 Song and #1 Album on the Folk DJ charts - January 2010 www.folkradio.org Winner - 2009 Kerrville Festival New Folk Songwriting Competition. Winner - 2010 Wildflower! Festival Performing Songwriter Contest Louise Mosrie's new album "Home" is a return to her Southern roots. Unlike the pop sounds of her first two albums, the songs on "Home" combine Americana, bluegrass and folk genres drawing on the sensual imagery of the Deep South and carve new melodies out of old ideas and stories. Louise creates a world of lush detail and wide-open emotion through her lyrics and vocal delivery. Her British parents (Dad from Gloucestershire and Mom from Cheshire) emigrated to the U.S. in the 60's for work and finally landed in middle Tennessee. As a child, Louise had trouble reconciling the two cultures around her - shunning all things Southern - disliking the accent, the food and the slow sleepy ways of doing things in her small rural town. She couldn't wait to leave the farm behind. Louise began writing pop/folk songs in her early 20s while living in Knoxville, producing two independent albums before moving to Nashville in 2004 to work on her song-craft. There, she made friends and contacts in the Americana and bluegrass side of Nashville, playing rounds and writing with artists like Donna Ulisse & Rick Stanley, Diana Jones and producer Ray Kennedy. Ironically, the melodies and imagery that emerged most strongly in her writing after 2004 came straight from the southern culture she once dismissed. Influenced by artists such as Nanci Griffith, Allison Krauss and Lucinda Williams, her songs tell stories of joy, love, struggle and heartbreak through the vivid characters and scenery of southern life. She now dreams of moving back to the country someday.... Check out: www.louisemosrie.com for preview clips of the new CD and more information.

Karrin Allyson at Marblehead Summer Jazz
"Her show, whose selections change with every set, is a celebration of a 13-album career that is one of the most stable in jazz. She has an easy mastery of bebop, bossa nova, chanson and soft rock, to name four of the many styles in which she is comfortable. A hallmark of Ms. Allyson's performances is her casual attitude toward phrasing and interpretation. In her unstudied approach she is a cheerful, gamin roustabout hanging out with the guys...." - --Stephen Holden NY Times

Miss Tess & the Talkbacks

Miss Tess & The Talkbacks’ music harkens back to a style of early western swing, jazz, and blues well suited to a smoky Southern bar. Winner of the Boston Music Award’s “Outstanding Folk Artist of the Year” in 2008. the band’s recent release, “The Love I Have For Your” pays homage to many of Tess’s influences, among them Neil Young, Ted Hawkins, Randy Newman, and Hank Williams.

Antje Duvekot at the me and thee coffeehouse (Jenna Lindbo opens)
"'New Siberia' is a special album to me because the songs are wiser," says songwriter Antje Duvekot. "They have an age to them that should resonate with anyone who's struggled through a difficult period and come out better.There's something really sweet in being able to look back on a journey like that, from a darker, younger self to a better, older place." That might not seem like a startling statement from most songwriters. But Duvekot is not most songwriters. For years, her songs have been critically praised for their hard-won wisdom, dark-eyed realism, and street-smart romanticism. Fans will certainly find all of that in 'New Siberia.' But coursing up from beneath the dark, like flowers pushing through stone, is a mature sense of hope, growth, renewal, and love. She sees past the ghosts of a receding past to forge new trails of self-exploration, judging her journey not only by what's facing her, but by how far she's already traveled. Blending uncommonly beautiful vocals with one of the sharpest poetic sensibilities in her field, Duve- kot has a remarkable ability to make us believe she is whispering secrets in our ear, and we know that she believes every word she sings."New Siberia" is her third studio album -- and a masterpiece of the modern folk genre. She assembled it herself with a fresh confidence enhanced by the fan loy- alty displayed on Kickstar ter.com. Again produced by folk legend Richard Shindell, the cinematic en- semble sound showcases Duvekot's bold, sure-footed path through emotional terrain most artists dare not even enter. "Musically, I think I am in the strongest place I've ever been," says Duvekot. "This album is even more personal than the last one, which was pretty personal,'' she adds, alluding to "The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer,'' voted top album of 2009 by lauded folk station WUMB 91.9 FM in Boston.The new record seeps further into the heart. She says "it includes a song about my mother that took me 20 years to write ('Phoenix'), a song about my dreams of making music becoming shattered ('The Life of a Princess'), and a song about not fitting into high school ('Glamorous Girls').'' The theme is a triumph over a difficult past. After being separated from her brother and father at age 13, Antje found herself uprooted from her native Heidelberg, Germany, to Delaware, where her home further fractured, as she struggled to assimilate, lacking English language skills or the familiar cultural sign posts from her youth. But she is more optimistic today, having found love and become an esteemed headliner in the U.S. and overseas as more people discover the power of her intimate music. "What a blessing to have worked with someone as talented as Antje,'' says Shindell, her pro- ducer. "With a voice like hers and songs as good as these, a producer just tries to get out of the way, do no harm, and let the artist speak for herself.'' Shindell played acoustic guitar and gathered a top-notch band to record at NRS Studios near Wood- stock. Band members include drummer Ben Wittman (Paul Simon, Paula Cole, Jonatha Brooke and Rosanne Cash), electric guitarist Marc Shulman (Suzanne Vega, Jewel, Chris Botti), and bassist Lincoln Schleifer (Levon helm, Rosanne Cash, Greg Trooper). Folk star John Gorka contributed backup vocals and guest cameos came from mandolinist Mark Erelli and world-class cellist Jane Scarpantoni. The title "New Siberia'' is a metaphor for where Antje is headed. Having sprung from a cold, inhospi- table place, she has moved on but also retained the past that shaped her. "The pain is built-in, but a lot of these songs are life-affirming. I have managed to save myself while staying honest about where I came from,'' she says. A stunning video captures the essence of the title track. Director Asia Kepka tookAntje to a beach in Rockport,MA and created a fantasy sequence.Antje has never looked more mysterious, nor more determined. The most haunting track is "Phoenix,'' in which Antje cathartically addresses her mother: "I rose up like a phoenix, rose up from your ash/ You just turned your back and I'll never understand.'' But there are also welcome moments of comic relief, as on "The Perfect Date'' (about an awkward first date that still suggests true love in the making) and the satirical "Glamorous Girls.'' There's also an imagi- native interpretation of Amelia Earhart's little-known co-pilot, Fred Noonan, and his possible feelings for her ("the Ballad of Fred Noonan"). No one writes quite like Antje, who was influenced lyrically by the very greats -- Dylan, Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon and Leonard Cohen, who are Mt. Rushmore-like figures to her. "Antje is the rare artist who can write about the social and the personal in the same breath,'' says folk icon Ellis Paul. "Her voice has a sound of innocence and naivete which makes razor-sharp insights into the human condi- tion.'' Adds producer Neil Dorfsman, who has worked with Dylan, Bruce Springsteen and Sting: "She creates an entire, detailed world in verse, and takes you there with beautiful and understated mel- ody. Her songs are stunning paintings of color and shade.'' And as Springsteen biographer Dave Marsh says, "Antje is the whole package.'' Antje's path has taken many twists and turns, from Germany to the University of Delaware, then to a short stint in NewYork City andVermont,followed by her current residence in Boston.She is of- ten also on the road, stopping at the prestigious Newport Folk and Philadelphia Folk Festivals, the classic radio show "Mountain Stage'' and overseas at the Celtic Connections Festival in Scotland and the Tonder Festival in Denmark. She has won the John Lennon Songwriting Competition and the best new folk award at the Kerrville Festival as well as the Boston Music award for "outstanding folk artist". Her first album, "Big Dream Boulevard,'' was produced by Seamus Egan of Irish-American super- group Solas. Her second, "The Near Demise of the High Wire Dancer,'' was produced by Shindell. And now there's "New Siberia.'' As she says, "I've grown and come to a stronger period in my life. I can look back with more optimism than before. I've really come far. I think you can only look back when you're in a stronger place.'' ********************** Jenna Lindbo opens the show! One part wise old woman and one part goofy little kid, Jenna Lindbo is going to find a way to your heart. It's only a matter of time. An Oregon native, Jenna travels the country, inspiring audiences from Asheville to Anchorage with her rootsy folk songs and infectious joy. Along the way she keeps meeting folks who love to hear her music, soak up the effervescent energy of her shows, and get smacked upside the heart. "A songwriter with serious spark!" Buoyed by the experience, inspiration, and exposure from touring extensively with Catie Curtis, Jenna's solo career is taking off. She's currently celebrating the release of her new cd, Jasmine Parade (2012), produced by Lorne Entress. With lush arrangements and simply adorned songs, this album beautifully captures Jenna's storytelling and reflects a deepening in her art as well as a rich new chapter unfolding. The songs on Jasmine Parade as well as her first release, Strings & Spokes (2010) bring joyful attention to the sweetness and sorrow of life worth living. Jasmine Parade features appearances by Catie Curtis, Kai Welch (Abigail Washburn), Edie Carey, and Peter Mulvey. "If you don't have fun listening to Jenna, it's pretty much your fault." Peter Mulvey

Mark Erelli at the me and thee coffeehouse
When questioned about his musical heroes as younger artist, Mark Erelli would dutifully rattle off names like Jackson Browne and John Hiattthe sort of emotionally literate lyricist and soulful vocalist to which he was oft-compared. But Erelli would always throw the interviewer a curveball by also listing musicians like David Lindley and Ry Cooder, two sidemen closely associated with Browne and Hiatt's best albums. "As a teenager I sat in front of my stereo for hours, in hopes of learning to write songs like that," remembers Erelli, "but I also tried to learn the guitar solos on those records note for note." Thousands of musical miles later, Mark Erelli now travels his own road that both embodies and challenges our expectations of a singer/songwriter. Erelli has tackled everything from western swing and protest songs to lullabies and murder ballads, all in a richly expressive voice that Twangville.com heralds as "the male counterpart to Neko Case." It is a journey that has taken Erelli from church basement coffeehouses to the main stage of the Newport Folk Festival, stopping briefly along the way to sing the national anthem at Fenway Park. http://markerelli.com/index.php?page=home Erelli still indulges that teenage fascination with the guitar solos, though it has evolved into a career as an in-demand multi-instrumentalist sideman. These days, fans are just as likely to find Erelli backing up Lori McKenna at the Grand Ole Opry, or Josh Ritter at London's Royal Albert Hall, as they are to see a solo acoustic performance at venerable listening rooms like Harvard Square's Club Passim. Some might see chasing both a timeless lyric and an exquisite lap steel guitar solo as mutually exclusive endeavors, but not Erelli. "Every time I accompany a great songwriter, I have the best seat in the house," Erelli explains. "I see how these amazing artists connect with their songs and their audiences from a unique vantage point. For me, every sideman gig is a Master Class, and it makes me a better musician and songwriter." The last year alone has seen Erelli fronting the bluegrass band Barnstar!, backing up Grammy Award-winning songwriters like Paula Cole, or branching into the producer role for Lori McKenna's next record, in between performing solo shows everywhere from New England to Nebraska. For casual listeners that prefer artists who churn out variations on the same theme year after year, Mark Erelli presents a bit of a dilemma. "I don't know anyone who likes just one type of music," counters Erelli. "There are so many people that would jump at the chance to play music for a living. I'm lucky enough to actually get to do it, and I intend to follow it wherever it leads me." It's just that kind of attitude that may someday find a teenager listening intently to one of Mark Erelli's songs blaring out of stereo, trying to figure out how he did it all, and did it all so well. Dan Blakeslee opens While attending art school in Baltimore, Maryland Dan Blakeslee, a Maine native discovered that he had an equal and deeply rooted connection to music. He would sneak into the galleries to play his guitar through the late hours of the evening surrounded by easels and oil paintings. After four years in "Charm City" he returned to his childhood home in the Tatnic Woods of South Berwick, ME. That summer he played street corners in New Hampshire and Maine while working at a lobster restaurant. His employer urged him to sever ties to manual labor for one of a more musical nature. A phone call from a friend offering him a room in Somerville, MA began his journey south in 1995. While settling into this artful community he began to practice his craft in the smoke laden subways of Boston. He now has been making music and art in the New England region ever since, leading him to tour the U.S. and abroad. He has performed with The Low Anthem, David Wax Museum, The Lumineers, Deer Tick, Liam Finn, Brown Bird, Joe Fletcher, Jonah Tolchin, Pearl and the Beard, Will Dailey, Death Vessel and Kimya Dawson to name a few. Blakeslee has five albums under his belt. The last two recorded by long time art school friend Ron Harrity ( Peapod Recordings). The first of the two "Lincoln Street Roughs" was recorded in a warehouse called The Map Room in Portland, Maine in 2007. The most recent album "Tatnic Tales" was released on May 10, 2011. It is a collection of Blakeslee's country folk songs most stemming from real life experiences. This album features his band The Calabash Club who formed in a Dover, NH basement in October of 2008. The members: Mike Effenberger piano, Nick Phaneuf bass, and Jim Rudolf drums; are the essential ingredients in this acoustic folk outfit. "Tatnic Tales" was recorded in Dean Ludingtons barn in North Berwick, ME by the railroad as the friendship between the members of the band bloomed. "Tatnic" is the first full length album the band has recorded together to date. Blakeslee's next album "Owed To The Tanglin' Wind" being recorded at the Columbus Theatre in Providence, RI will surface in the late spring of 2013 with tours of the U.S and Europe to follow it's release. The hills and highways are made for wandering, this has been deep rooted in Dan Blakeslee who performs an average of 200 shows per year. In a gymnasium at Laconia Prison (NH) in 2005, a crowd of 150 inmates became hushed after hearing Blakeslee's songs of hardship, hope and true grit. Late winter of 2006 brought a string of 27 shows with Tiger Saw (Dylan Metrano, Alan Bull, Angel Deradoorian (Dirty Projectors)) to the southern US and straight up the Mississippi River igniting his passion to continue on this path. Upon returning from the 110 mile journey by foot on the Massachusetts Walking Tour in June of 2012 Blakeslee mapped out a tour of a different shape slated for the fall of that year. This venture spanned 7 states, with Blakeslee performing 31 shows in 25 days as his alter ego "Doctor Gasp" making a connect the dots Jack-O-Lantern face on a map of New England. 2013 will bring him to Austin, TX in March for SXSW followed by a tour with his band "The Calabash Club" in late June. In early September will be making his way overseas for the first time doing a European Tour with Jenee Halstead. A prolific artist, Dan Blakeslee has made over 600 rock posters in his career some of which are featured in the book "Art of Modern Rock" published by Chronicle Books. He has done album covers for dozens of bands including Assembly of Dust, Slaid Cleaves, The Tan Vampires, Jonah Tolchin and many more. After seeing his posters, The Portsmouth Brewery (NH) asked Blakeslee to draft 8 beer label designs and the Northampton Brewery (MA) followed soon after commissioning him to make a label six pack design. His beer label art has garnered national recognition with the Alchemist Brewery's (VT) "Heady Topper" in 2012. His silk screened posters will be traveling the USA in the "National Poster Retrospecticus" in 2013 curated by the LAP Gallery.

Miss Tess and The Talkbacks / special guest Emily Elbert at the me & thee coffeehouse
Miss Tess For Miss Tess and her band, the Talkbacks, it seems the best name was one that didn't mean much of anything too concrete. The Brooklyn-based singer and her band make swinging, jumpin' modern vintage music that nods to the traditions of saloon jazz, country swing, early rockabilly, and New Orleans second line, yet somehow maintains a unique and personal sound. In their earlier incarnation, they were known as Miss Tess and the Bon Ton Parade and that, says Miss Tess, proved both too small of a box and too confusing. They were consistently confused for a zydeco band or a New Orleans band. "When I conceived of the band in Boston back in 2006 or so, we had a horn player and we were a little more jazz influenced," she says. "In the last couple of years the sound has evolved, something that naturally happens when you spend so much time on the road with a band. We've become slightly edgier and there is some more country and early rock n' roll coming through. We now have two electric guitars. I'd been thinking about a change for a while and we finally settled on a name. With a name like the Talkbacks, it is what it is." That's a good thing because it's not easy to define Miss Tess and the Talkbacks. Their last album, 2012's Sweet Talk, includes 10 originals and a smoldering cover of "I Don't Want to Set the World on Fire, " the Ink Spots classic. The originals include the bawdy cabaret of "Don't Tell Mama," the waltzing "Save Me St. Peter" ("Walking on water is a hell of a stand / With no solid ground and no helping hand."), the dance hop, swamp rocking of "People Come Here for Gold," and the burning jazz blues of "If You Wanna Be My Man," which easily could have been sung by Ella Fitzgerald or Sarah Vaughan, two of her early idols. Miss Tess, who adopted the name friends called her because her last name "does not flow" also lists Bonnie Raitt and Tom Waits among the artists she admires. Both have that ambitious stylistic range. Waits, she notes, "was able to take some of those older jazz and blues influences and kind of twist them around and do his own thing." That's just what Tess and her band do again and again with top notch musicianship to boot. "I think we do bring new sounds to the table," she says. "I'm trying to figure out how we do that. Our ears have been informed by different things than the people who were living back then. We're not actively trying to copy anything. We're making fresh arrangements, kind of taking the feeling, style, and soul from some of this older music that we like. " She says lately the band has taken a turn towards more of a groove. "The newer stuff has been more early rock and roll, some Chuck Berry influence, some Doug Sahm," she says. "I think lately we've been interested in dance music, something with a beat, a groove, something that makes you want to shake around." On Oct 29 the band will release "The Love I Have For You", their second on rootsy record label Signature Sounds [Lake Street Dive, Eilen Jewell, Chris Smither, Erin McKeown]. The 7-song album features six covers and one new original and pays homage to some of Tess's favorite songwriters. It was produced by Miss Tess & The Talkbacks and recorded and mixed by Devin Greenwood (Norah Jones, Anais Mitchell, Amos Lee) in Brooklyn, NY. Miss Tess explains how the band chose the 6 songs to cover: "Each artist we covered has held a special place in the history of our lives, as well as in the history of American music. These folks are all musical giants who dedicated their lives to music, and for that I hold them in the highest esteem." Miss Tess grew up in Maryland and went to college in Baltimore intending to be a graphic artist. She took piano lessons at an early age and dabbled in guitar, though she didn't start learning it seriously until she was almost out of college. Her parents played music in a variety of styles including big bands, swing, folk, jug band, and blues groups. She listened to punk, grunge, and alternate rock, and then got into rockabilly, old country, and early blues after she moved to Boston. It all fits. She was always traveling, taking road trips for months at a time and one day driving away from the mountains after a Colorado bluegrass festival and having written a few songs during her sojourns, she decided music was her art. She went back to Baltimore and put together a band. Eventually, she moved to Boston, took a few classes at Berklee, and one a slew of local music awards. Later, came the move to Brooklyn and has been there for almost four years. Her first album was recorded with mom and dad playing with her, and she has been steadily recording since. By the end of 2013 she will have nine albums under her belt. In Boston, she found the vintage archtop guitar she plays most of the time. A friend suggested she get a guitar more suited to her style and she found it on Craigslist. The seller lived a few blocks away so she went to check it out. He had a bunch of guitars, but the archtop grabbed her eye. She went back and visited with it several times. "It had such a sweet tone," she says. "I became obsessed with this guitar." Eventually, she plunked down the $825, a big chunk of change for a student working a temp job. The guitar came with its original case papers showing it was first owned by a woman in the 1930s. "I said, it's meant for me," she says. Though she lives in New York, Miss Tess says she finds it hard to write there. Too many distractions. She's done a writing retreat in New Hampshire, staying in a cabin for five days and doing nothing but writing songs. She's started to work on new tunes and says she'll return to her New Hampshire version of Walden again. "It was great. I was really productive," she says. "I get a lot of inspiration in New York. But having a place to meditate on that and just write songs is really special". ---- Emily Elbert Steeped in jazz, James Taylor, and Jimi Hendrix, Emily Elbert has carved out her sound on the road. Armed with a global spirit and do-it-yourself passion, the independent songwriter has played over 700 shows throughout the U.S. and in 15 countries worldwide from Peru to Palestine, and Turkey to Thailand. The Boston Folk Festival notes, "Emily is among the most glowing of the upcoming generation of American singer-songwriters, if 'upcoming' even applies to this phenom any longer." As a teenager, Emily dove headfirst into writing, singing, performing, and recording. At age 17, she co-produced and self-released her first original album, Bright Side. Soon after, she set her sights on attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, and was awarded a four-year, full-tuition scholarship. Now at 24, Emily's music has won awards in the U.S. and U.K., and garnered accolades from publications like The Washington Post, and Glamour Magazine. YouTube videos of her performances have attracted more than 1.5 million views from music lovers of all ages and nationalities. She's played festivals ranging from Indonesia's Java Jazz Fest to New York's CMJ Music Marathon. Known for her strong melodies, straight-to-the-heart vocals, and intricate guitar work, Emily has performed at some of the best listening rooms and clubs in the country. These include the Highline Ballroom, Brooklyn Bowl, Hotel Café, Club Passim, The Cactus Café, The Tin Angel, City Winery, The Living Room, Rockwood Music Hall, and The Kessler Theater. She has also opened for artists including G. Love & Special Sauce, Leon Russell, Richie Havens, Tuck & Patti, Crystal Bowersox, Kaki King, Jorge Drexler, Kate Voegele, Joan Osbourne, Ryan Montbleau, Livingston Taylor, and Patty Larkin. Recent honors include being awarded the Chairman's Young Artist Scholarship to 2013 Crown of the Continent Guitar Workshop & Festival in Montana, being selected as the First Place Winner of the 2012 B.W. Stevenson Memorial Songwriting Contest, as well as a 2012 Timberland Community Eco-Friendly Artist. She was also named to the top five of the Mountain Stage/NewSong contest in 2010 and Glamour Magazine selected Emily as one of their Top Ten College Women, 2010. She's a winner of Scotland's 2009 BurnSong International Song Contest and was named the Best New Artist of 2008 by WUMB-FM Radio in Boston. She was a member of the prestigious Gibson/Baldwin Grammy Jazz Ensemble, and the The Dallas Morning News selected her as Local Rookie of the Year in 2007. Emily co-produced and self-released her debut album, Bright Side, in 2006 and her second album, Proof, in 2010. Her third CD, a live recording entitled Alive, In Love, was released in May 2012. Evolve, a four-track EP recorded at Mason Jar Music in Brooklyn, will be available on iTunes, Bandcamp, and CDBaby outlets on November 5th, 2013.
