It’s impossible to explain the exceptional talents of EmiSunshine, an 12-year-old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation’s attention as a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. Steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range, even though she has yet to gain the life experience and empathy seemingly necessary to fully comprehend the words she sings. Despite a given name that reflects optimism, she is drawn to darker themes of pain, anguish and even murder, like that of The Louvin Brothers, whom she loves.
Whether she’s performing on the Today show or the Grand Ole Opry or taking the stage at Nashville’s historic Ryman Auditorium, she is fearless, confident and firm in her musical direction. As she says, she sings “old-time music,” but it’s her own unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and country, with a little bit of blues thrown in for good measure. Her talent is indescribable and inexplicable, but fortunately, it doesn’t have to be understood to be appreciated. Visit Emi's website here: http://theemisunshine.com/
Parker Willingham has fiber and depth shaped by his upbringing in Niceville, Florida. The “easy-does-it” 25- year old thrives on the small town way of life. A firm believer in living each day to the fullest, Parker chooses not to take life, in its entirety, too seriously. The straightforward, down to earth southern gent, with an infectious “cat got the cannery” grin, sense of humor and wit, takes life as it comes--not too fast, cool and casual.
