Biography

In the last two years, Emily has quit her day job to pursue music full time, recorded and released her first solo EP, moved into a 1983 Dodge camper van, and completed her first US tour.

Chambers’ 2016 EP Magnolia “follows in the tradition of impassioned soul records. It has the warmth, intimacy and confessional tone of classic soul. The horns float like an Otis Redding album, her singing sometimes recalls Etta James, the vibe is Motown.” – The Montreal Gazette

Chambers’ performed in LA, Oklahoma, Dallas, Austin, New Orleans, Nashville, New York City and more.
