Whether she finds herself humming to the forests of Northern Ontario, soothing the prairie winds of small-town Manitoba, or catching the somber rain of British Columbia, Emily Kohne’s sings to the life she has lived, and ties her music to the places she has been.
As a wandering soul, Emily allows her listeners to travel with her down life’s open road. She is an old soul with no particular spacial roots; anywhere can be home. Emily’s single releases are travelling through her formative years in song and soulful expression. These songs are focusing in on the years of study and crafting her unique musical style. Deep rooted blues and jazz influences shine through the folk/pop sound that lends itself to Emily’s songwriting. Thematically, the songs explore the universal challenges we face with our transition into adulthood; love, loss, and letting it all go. She has graced the stages of Winnipeg Folk Festival, toured throughout Europe and Australia, and has opened for CBC favourites Kim Churchill and Terra Lightfoot. With a full-length album on the horizon, the singer/songwriter gives all that she has to offer; a wealth of talent and a maturity that resonates through her lyrical ability.
