Biography ☀️

Recognized by David Foster as a world-class, up-and-coming talent, Emily Schultz has injected herself into the Canadian music scene with force and grace. A FACTOR-funded artist with over 200 live performances under her belt in the last year, Emily’s powerful artistry, dynamic voice and honest stage presence has led her to selling out several co-headlined shows (The Great Hall, Rivoli), becoming a seasoned festival performer (Hops & Harvest Festival, Kensington Jazz Festival) and landing herself a monthly residency at Toronto Staple, The Rex Jazz & Blues Bar. Recently recognized for her mastery and and universality as a songwriter, Emily's long-awaited song What Do I Know earned a nomination for Song of the Year for 2023's Ontario Folk Music Awards. Emily's collaboration with Jordan Hart (Little Drummer Boy) receiving 150,000+ streams in just one month with other cowriting credits across DSPs summing up to 2million+ streams and counting. Featured on eTalk, Much Music and Breakfast TV, Emily’s raw onstage energy has been featured at JUNOfest, Folk Music Ontario and multiple times at Canadian Music Week. Additionally, Emily is the co-founder of ‘Giving Tree Art Collective,’ an artist collective that has teamed up with companies like 1 Hotel, the Park Hyatt and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada to produce events, music programs and community outreach while sourcing Canadian artists for performance opportunities. She is also involved in the non-profit Honey Jam, appointed for musical direction and as a repeated ambassador at events globally for this program that gives young women performance and industry opportunities. Using all of her skills towards connection, art and community, Emily has cemented herself as a huge up-and-coming talent in the Canadian music scene to be watched not only for her artistry, but her passionate action towards giving back to community. Emily's long awaited debut EP 'Family Name' is available across streaming platforms, along with her most recently released, fan-favourite, Away Away.
