Fresh from taking part in the final series of American Idol (where she made the final 24), this 18 year old Florida starlet is about to take the 2018 country world by storm. After hearing a pre-released song “Waste My Time” from her self titled debut E.P. I was immediately drawn in to this girl’s vocal talents. With an infectious beat paired with catchy lyrics too, it’s no surprise we have chosen this girl as our January ‘Artist To Watch’ here at Belles and Gals.
Each track, self penned by Emily herself, with the addition of songwriting magic of Hannah Ellis and Josh Kerr on track “We’ll See”, contains lyrics that tell a story and are very relatable to every girl in life from breakups to being “In Love With The Memories”. From first listen to her full E.P. it‘s completely evident this talent is certainly not wasting her time and has truly found her calling in music. The 5 song E.P. (released Thursday) has totally left anyone listening wanting that extra bit more. 5 songs is just not enough to show off Emily’s full range of talent and we can only hope there is going to be a full album from this incredibly talented singer songwriter hitting the UK/US airwaves very soon.
