Emily Hackett speaks the truth. The Atlanta raised songwriter pulls emotions into her music, stirring in an authentic blend of self-deprecation that is both unique and refreshing. What poises her against the rest is the soul of a fiery artist ready to light the stage, all while staying honest as her Southern roots. Last fall Emily released an acoustic EP, featured on Noisetrade: The Raw EP. Her 2013 acoustic cover of Lorde’s “Royals” hit over a million views on YouTube, was featured on Buzzfeed, won “Best Coffeehouse Cover” on Sirius XM and reached the final round of “Best Royals Covers” on Ryan Seacrest. Emily won Belk’s National Modern Southern Music Showcase, playing amphitheater tour dates with major country artists. Her duet with Parachute frontman Will Anderson, “Take My Hand (The Wedding Song)” hit over 50k Soundcloud streams in two months and peaked at No. 4 on the iTunes® Singer-Songwriter chart.
