"Annalise Emerick, a self-starting, twenty-something, singer-songwriter has been on the road virtually non-stop for seven years. Choosing to leave behind any semblance of a normal life for the day-to-day of a traveling independent musician was always a no-brainer for the Nashville spitfire. In 2011, Emerick released her first project, Starry-Eyed, to heavy critical acclaim after it debuted at #9 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. Three years after the release of her first EP, Emerick returned with Field Notes, a folk-inspired, markedly more mature turn for the singer that demonstrated just how much her endless days on the road and years of hard work fostered her growth as an artist and performer. With Field Notes, Emerick has situated herself among fans of Brandi Carlile, Patty Griffin, and Eva Cassidy alike.
Emerick has toured extensively all over the US, playing 150+ shows every year. In 2015, Emerick won the Wildflower Festival singer/songwriter contest in Richardson, Texas, opened for Gregory Alan Isakov at a sold out show at the Ogden Theatre in Denver, Colorado and completed a European tour. A native of Austin, Texas, Emerick was thrilled to be selected as a 2016 Kerrville New Folk Finalist.
Emerick released The Right Heart EP, a collection of love songs, on May 5th, 2017 and will continue touring throughout the year, including three weeks in Europe.
When she’s not on the road, you can find Annalise catching up on her book club reading, hanging out with her husband, and writing new songs at their home in Nashville."
