Singer/songwriter, producer, guitar, and harmonica player from the Southern Tier of Upstate New York — is a description that only begins to scratch the surface of motivation-driven, harmony-obsessed Emily Angell. While some have compared her to Jewel and Alanis Morissette, she’s equally known for moments of belting out Christina-esque high notes and busting out the harmonica after disclosing her love of donuts and hatred of wearing pants to an audience.
In 2020/21 Emily released two singles “Patience & Grace” and “If I Walk Away” — the former, a sweeping ballad reflecting the emotional onslaught of the times we were about to live through together, and the latter, a pop/R&B-influenced response to the injustice that permeated our screens.
Emily's latest EP: Built For This combines empowerment pop with touching melodies that are easily singable. Her live show is a natural extension of the album, complete with electro-rock drum beats, and blasting bass riffs. When Emily plays a solo-acoustic set, you'll find yourself chair-grooving along to live-looped twists on songs you know and love, in addition to songs from her original catalog.
Emily’s debut self-released EP The Upset (2011) received praise for its simple, acoustic approach, landing her generous reviews from Women of Substance Radio and AllMusic.com. Her sophomore EP Let Go (2015) incorporated Folk and Rock influences and secured her spots opening for Alt Nation mainstays American Authors and Dreamers.
ComeHereFloyd says “Boss” (Built for This, 2018) "races into the subconscious of your mind and hooks in like – whoa."
When Emily isn't busy gigging about town or running around obstacle course races, you can catch her over at Twitch.TV/emilyisfun singing, sipping coffee, and laughing at her own jokes.
Emily loves to work with venues to provide an unforgettable musical experience. So whether you're a local spot looking for an engaging set of covers and originals, or you're a talent buyer looking for an artist with a dynamic electronic-rock show, Em's got you covered.
