Emery Adeline has spent her twenty-seven years of life with firm roots in the Colorado soil before moving to Nashville, Tennessee where she lived for 8 years. She now splits time between Denver and Nashville. Her vulnerable and honest storytelling comes through without fear in every word she writes. Emery finds home amongst like-minded strong women Kacey Musgraves, Taylor Swift, and Sheryl Crow.
Adeline began her performance career at 8 years old, singing an A Capella version of Landslide, the classic Fleetwood Mac song. From there, she never really stopped. She won the Young Songwriters Competition at Swallow Hill in Denver at age 17 and went on to complete her first full length album later that year. In 2013 she moved to Nashville, TN to study Songwriting under music row veterans James Elliott and Drew Ramsey at the prestigious Belmont University.
After graduating, Adeline released her first EP Killin’ Time. Even before the release, Adeline was selected as 1 of 10 finalists in the 2018 Telluride Troubadour competition, which brings together songwriters from around the world during the 45th Annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival. Her music landed on Music Row veteran Scott Paschall’s desk. A respected publisher and writer manager who has worked with the likes of Country Superstar Trisha Yearwood and hit songwriters Mike Reid, John Scott Sherrill and Eric Kaz among others, says new artists typically require time to develop before they can write and record a project that genuinely reflects their artistry. “I was blown away,” he says. “She has such a unique voice, and a pop sensibility to her phrasing that is unforced and wonderful! This is only the beginning for Emery.
After a busy summer in 2018 of playing venues across the country, including Rockwood Music Hall in New York City and No Vacancy in Los Angeles, Adeline got to work writing her next project, slated to release in 2022. Working with esteemed producers Josh Matheny and Justin Klump, this record is sure to dazzle. An introspective look at the intricacies of loss and love, it really showcases the deep vulnerability in her writing. Adeline believes that writing as honestly as she can about her life creates space for her listeners to experience their own. “I just want to write music that helps people feel connected,” Adeline says. “I’m making music that I want to listen to, that I believe in, and I hope that others will want to come along for the ride.”
Her brand new single Magnetic will be available everywhere on June 24th.
