Writing songs on heart strings, Edmonton-born singer-songwriter Emily Schultz will wrap you up and gently take you down the road of self-reflection, hope and all the beautiful complexities of the human experience. Combining the intimacy of her storytelling and the powerful dynamics in her performance, her sound is deeply influenced by alternative soul, pop and folk, like Eva Cassidy meets Dodie meets JP Saxe. She has co-headlined several sold out shows here in Toronto, including the Great Hall, Burdock Music Hall and Rivoli, and is a seasoned festival performer at such Canadian festivals as the Edmonton Folk Music Festival and the Blue Skies Festival. Since moving to Toronto, Emily has been featured on eTalk, Breakfast TV Toronto and Much Music, the latter of which she worked side-by-side to produce an original song with recording artist, Allie-X. She also lent her talents to the renowned Soulpepper Theatre Company in their recent remount of ‘Riverboat Coffee House: The Yorkville Scene’ as a featured performer. Emily is currently finishing up her debut independent EP entitled ‘Family Name,’ which is set to be released in 2022.
Emily Schultz's long-awaited debut EP is set to be released in 2022. 5 tracks of stirring content that bring the listener to a place of vulnerability and hope through the exploration of complex relationship dynamics. Co-produced by Schultz herself along with multi-instrumentalist and recording artist, Jordan Hart, this body of work is well worth the wait.
