About Emily

Emily Schultz hails from the thriving arts community of Edmonton, AB. She struck an interest in the arts at a very young age, attending the Victoria School for the Arts throughout middle and high school. There, Emily developed her skills in singing, dancing, choreographing and acting while honing a love for percussion. She began accompanying many artists musically, which led her to perform at festivals and events across Canada such as the Edmonton Folk Music Festival (Edmonton, AB), the Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Festival (Salmon Arm, BC) and the Blue Skies Festival (Ottawa, ON).

Her love of performing took her to Victoria, BC, where she earned an enriched diploma in performing arts from the Canadian College of Performing Arts. Shortly after she moved to Vancouver where she later picked up a guitar and started the journey of writing music.

In 2016, Emily moved to Toronto, ON. She has since been featured musically on eTalk, Breakfast TV and Much Music, the latter of which she worked alongside artist/producer Allie-X to produce Emily’s original song “All I’ve Ever Needed” in association with 5gum. She recently lent her musical abilities to the renowned Soulpepper Theatre Company as a featured artist in their production of 'Riverboat Coffee House: The Yorkville Scene.' Since moving to Toronto, she has been a featured performer at Canadian Music Week, co-headlined several sold-out venues (highlights including The Great Hall, Rivoli, Bar Cathedral and Supermarket) and earned herself a residency at Toronto's legendary music staple, the Rex Hotel Jazz & Blues Bar. Emily debuted her talents as a featured performer in the new Festival Player's production "The Shape of Home" in Prince Edward County this July, 2022.

Emily’s sound is driven forward by her folk roots with influences from indie, pop, alternative soul and country. Combining powerful vocals, honest song writing and guitar, she has developed a passionate performance experience that speaks honestly of human existence, and releases it with an onstage energy that is both raw and contagious. Pulling inspiration from Patty Griffin to JP Saxe, Ben Howard to India Arie, Emily has concocted her own brand of music that will both open your soul and get you singing your heart out. 

Additionally, Emily is the co-founder of 'Giving Tree,' an artist collective based on cultivating free creativity and inspiring human connection. Giving Tree creates performance opportunities to highlight up-and-coming artists, teaming up with companies like 1 Hotel Toronto and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada to design events and music programs alike. She is also heavily involved with the global organization Honey Jam, a non-profit centred around giving young, female artists the chance to further themselves in the music industry through education and performance opportunities. An alum herself, Emily has been a Honey Jam ambassador since 2018, while recently stepping into leadership by taking on musical arrangement and creative direction for Honey Jam. 

Emily released her debut collaboration Really Something with artist, Nathan Nera, in July 2022, preceding the drop of her first single entitled Times Like These. Times Like These is the first of many tracks off her debut EP entitled Family Name, set to be fully released by 2023.
