“Few are writing songs like Jackson Emmer.” – Rolling Stone
Based in the small town of Carbondale, CO, Emmer has quietly built his reputation as a songwriter’s songwriter on the outskirts of country music. His work blends humor with heartache, and tradition with exploration. Emmer’s whiskey-smooth, conversational singing style is as distinct as his writing. He often croons at a whisper, drawing listeners in with his relaxed, understated delivery. Emmer received international acclaim for his 2018, sophomore album, “Jukebox.” His music has been featured in Rolling Stone, NPR, the Cannes Film Festival, and 150+ radio stations worldwide.
While honing his gentle, country sound on the backroads of America, Emmer moved around the US for almost a decade. Colorado, North Carolina, and Vermont were his main anchor points. He began performing in local blues bands at the age of 18. Too young to be admitted through the front door of a bar, Emmer often had to sneak in through the kitchen to play. A few years later, he found work in string bands and bar bands before focusing on the craft of songwriting. Never one to shy away from a side-hustle, Emmer has worked nearly 40 jobs to support his “music habit.” Grocery shelver, limo driver, waiter, museum attendant, and produce farmer- the list goes on. This varied background has become a key ingredient in Emmer’s writing.
