EmiSunshine and The Rain to Bring ‘Family Wars’ to Asheville
EmiSunshine is 15 years old, but she has attracted national attention since the age of 9. Rolling Stone once named her among “10 new country artists you need to know.”
Now, the East Tennessee-based singer/songwriter is set to perform two shows at The Grey Eagle in Asheville on Saturday, Feb. 1. All ages will be admitted.
EmiSunshine’s new album, “Family Wars,” which was produced by 4-time Grammy-winner Tony Brown in Nashville, has received excellent reviews for its thought-provoking songs about abusive relationships, mass violence, political corruption, and freedom in America.
Known for her powerful voice, insightful lyrics and masterful ukulele-playing, EmiSunshine has been compared by some critics to a young Dolly Parton. She has appeared on “The Today Show,” NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” the Grand Ole Opry (14 times) and elsewhere. In 2017, she was featured in the Grammy-nominated Elvis Presley documentary “The King,” alongside Alec Baldwin, Ashton Kutcher and other stars, for which she wrote and performed two original songs while riding in the backseat of Elvis’ 1963 Rolls Royce.
Recently, EmiSunshine was selected to receive The ASCAP Foundation Desmond Child Anthem Award in New York City. The award, which was established by ASCAP Board member and Grammy award-winning songwriter-producer Desmond Child, recognizes talented young songwriters every year.
EmiSunshine’s music is available at www.TheEmiSunshine.com and wherever music is sold.
