Her music spans genres, crosses barriers and creates bridges. Her voice soars to emotional heights and reaches down into the grittiness of the soul. Her performances are foot-stomping, heart-wrenching adventures in rhythm, blues, jazz and rock and roll. For more than a decade Miss Emily has captivated audiences across Canada, the US and the United Kingdom with her unique combination of passion and talent. Her most recent record ‘Rise’ featured Gord Sinclair and Rob Baker of the Tragically Hip as well as Chris Brown of Bourbon Tabernacle Choir and Eric Schenkman of Spin Doctors. Support like that doesn’t come along “just because.” Over the years, these renowned musicians have recognized something that elevates her. But that’s the thing with Miss Emily – she uses her talent to elevate others. Her commitment to local and international charities like The United Way, The Schizophrenic Society and Light of Day is unequalled. Perhaps it’s this combination of generosity and an unparalleled musical gift that has allowed her to assemble a list of accomplishments that include:

– Five appearances at the Cisco Ottawa Bluesfest
– Being the first Canadian on the Light of Day UK Tour
– Touring with Canadian Pacific Holiday Train
– Opening spots for The Tragically Hip, The Trews and other notable acts, as well as work with Gene Simmons of KISS
– Sharing the stage with Bruce Springsteen

It’s an impressive list and one that will expand soon. Miss Emily is currently working on a new record that traces back to her roots in music and already includes some of the best song-writing of her young career.

Emily’s full-length albums to date include: Miss Emily – ‘Rise’ (2014), Emily Fennell Band – ‘Red’ (2009), Sugarplum – ‘Miss Twisted’ (2009) and Emily Fennell – ‘Green’ (2004).
