A possible modern reincarnate of one part Patsy Cline, one part Kathryn Hepburn, and two parts all her own, Emily West brings her rich, distinctive vocals that echo the charming voices of the past, while adding her own unique brand of flare. Her voice and music is somewhat undefinable, somewhat a collaboration of music genres, and often times referred to as "enchanting" for good reason.
Emily was born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa, and moved to Nashville after graduating high school. A once shy child in a large family, Emily blossomed when she discovered the legendary Patsy Cline. "I started to come out of my shell a little bit. I was amazed by this lady and how she sang all these love songs. It was vulnerable and desperate and honest. No eight-year-old really gets all of that, but I could feel some beauty and truth in the pain."
In 2010, West was nominated for an ACM award for Vocal Event of the Year with her song Blue Sky featuring Keith Urban. West was signed to Capitol Nashville in 2003, and her singles include Rocks in Your Shoes and Blue Sky. She is independently releasing a new record out soon for download in the fall.
