Growing up in a home of musicians, EMILY WHITE was constantly immersed in music for as long as she can remember. Her mother first introduced her to performing on stage at the early age of 9, where she sang in front of a crowd of close to 5,000….from that moment on she knew that she wanted to pursue a career that allowed her to share her talents with the world.
Now 17 and armed with that knowledge she has since created a unique style all of her own. Armed with her guitar and dusky vocals, she captures moments of life from the blush of first love to the passage of adulthood. Her music is both sweet and melancholy, but still filled with the hope of youth.
In the past two years she has been invited to open for not only the award winning country music group Confederate Railroad, but also for the famed American southern rock band, the Atlanta Rhythm Section. She has performed across the southeast at local state parks, city celebrations, fairs, listening venues, restaurants, coffee shops, and even at the world famous Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge in Nashville, TN. Emily is honored to have been invited back to headline at Eddie’s Attic and these experiences have helped her develop the confidence of her songwriting and her poise as a performer.
In 2012 she released her first 13 song project which was recorded at Cook Sound Studio, located in Ft. Payne, Alabama. The album consisted of original material most of which are written by Emily and two never released songs by Georgia hall of fame writers, Buddy Buie and JR Cobb. Buie and Cobb have written famous song standards such as “Traces” and “Spooky”. More recently she has written and collaborated with local songwriter, Allie Small, to produce a self-titled 6 song CD, featuring music that shows a maturity beyond her years. Her music is available for purchase by accessing her website www.emilywhitemusic.com.
Born in Texas, raised in the Midwest, HANNAH FAIRLIGHT moved to New York City at 18 carving out a home at punk rock club CBGB and Greenwich Village’s The Bitter End. A gypsy-faerie pianist-turned-guitarist, Fairlight has toured solo across South America, the UK, Europe, Australia, and much of the U.S. echoing the likes of Chris Whitley and Tori Amos, and often sleeping in her minivan Clark. Raw, vulnerable, and confessional, Hannah’s music will take you on a journey of self-discovery.
