I had it all figured out…
Most of it didn’t turn out the way I pictured.
Hi there, my name is Emree, and I’m from a tiny island in the Pacific Northwest.
My parents trained falcons and flew airplanes, and I had space to run.
I grew up in a house where the birds watched Monday night football with us, and my dad told crazy stories about flying in Alaska.
I love the rain and the ocean so much that I'll jump in any time of year.
I learned to play guitar so I that I could sing The First Cut is the Deepest at my 5th grade talent show, and I spent high school entering songwriting competitions, going to recording studios, and making a name for myself in Washington state.
I left University of Washington to write songs in Nashville, I made an EP In New York and Atlanta.
I opened for Joan Baez.
Three years ago I moved to Los Angeles and it felt like the world had been cracked open.
My best friend and I listened to a lot of EDM, went back stage at concerts and strange parties in the hills because our neighbors were pretty cool.
We wore a lot of leather. I dyed my hair platinum blonde.
I fell in love.
In March I got blindsided and a lot of things changed.
I dyed my hair back, I stopped going to strange house parties, and I started going to acting class.
The thing I love about acting and music is that they complement each other. When I write the song I don’t always know what it sounds like, but I know what it looks like.
Great changes are preceded by chaos, and chaos has been a good friend. A lot of the music I made will never be released, and I spent a lot of time not knowing what kind of artist I wanted to be. I think I needed that, because now I do.
Now I am excited about what I am making for you.
This music is my heart; I’m giving it away, so handle with care.
