The exceptional talents of Emi Sunshine, a 10-year-old East Tennessee prodigy who has captured the nation?s attention as a singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist, are truly amazing. Steeped in Appalachian music, she is a true vocal stylist, one who instinctively knows how to interpret the nuances of a song with her impressive range. The Tennessean is just the latest to describe her as ?an old soul,? noting, ?Onstage, this soul?s presence is commanding and her singing voice authentic and folksy.? Whether she?s performing on the Today show, the Grand Ole Opry or taking the stage at Nashville?s historic Ryman Auditorium, she is fearless, confident and firm in her musical direction. She says, she sings ?old-time music,? but it?s her own unique blend of roots music that is equal parts Americana, bluegrass, gospel, and country, with a little bit of blues thrown in for good measure! ... read more

The songs of Pierce Edens resonate from a calling sparked within him to share a story. It?s a story inspired by old-time tunes, a rock and roll fever, and the downright rural, gritty mountain life of his upbringing.
