It’s nearly impossible to describe the exceptional talents of EMISUNSHINE, a 13-year-old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter and multi- instrumentalist. Steeped in Appalachian music, Emi is a true vocal stylist. Influenced by legends who have made history (Loretta Lynn/Tanya Tucker/The Louvin Brothers), Emi has taken the world by surprise with her ability to combine her youthful, bubbly disposition with deep, meaningful and rather dark song content seeped in lonesome. Bringing her imagination to life, Emi has been able to write and record her own music, cementing her reputation as a well-crafted storyteller.
The fearless performer has performed on The Today Show, The Grand Ole Opry and at The Ryman, making evident her confident musical direction. Since her break-out at 9 years old, Emi has garnered more than one-half million Facebook followers. While her music has been described as “old-timey,” she adds her own unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, Bluegrass, Gospel and Country, with a sprinkle of Blues. An indescribable and inexplicable talent, EmiSunshine is a must-see- to-be-appreciated classic!
