Wakeman’s Emily Keener made it to the top 12 of the Spring 2016 season of The Voice. Congratulations to a great run for Emily. We look for big things from her in the future.
Check out Randy’s interview with Emily Keener during The Morning Mix on June 1:
Emily Keener is a sixteen year old singer/songwriter from Wakeman, Ohio with a thing for Paul Simon. She plays her dad’s old acoustic guitar, and can fill a room with her unique style. Emily draws inspiration from a huge variety of artists and writers, and appreciates just about every genre of music in existence. Her eclectic interests are obvious to anyone who hears the unexpected blend of sounds and styles in her shows. A love of classic music contrasted by a fresh, unique approach to songwriting provide a solid base for her ever-growing career.
Writing is Emily’s passion, and she does it like no one else. Her songs are distinctly original, and her goal is to allow her writing style to grow and change with her. The melodies and ideas in each one are filled with depth, honesty, and beauty.
