"SCOPE presents world-renowned singer/songwriter Mat Kearney"

Hit the lights, turn on the mics, and let the music flow, because Mat Kearney will take the SCOPE stage.

The world-renowned singer/songwriter will perform alongside opening act Emily Hearn to celebrate Senior Week for RiverFest at 8 p.m. in the IMU second-floor ballroom.

SCOPE has had an eventful year of music on campus.

In an effort to add variety to the lineup, SCOPE general manager Phil Monfils said the organization went to the students to find out what they wanted.

“We gather a lot of ideas from students, and Mat Kearney came up a lot,” he said. “So when we found that he was available during RiverFest, we jumped on the chance.”

SCOPE public-relations coordinator Mackenzie Sheehy said the student organization wanted to use the second-floor ballroom for the venue.

“It can hold a lot of people but has a really awesome intimate feel,” Sheehy said. “Mat Kearney was a perfect fit, because his sound combines mainstream pop with an alternative singer/songwriter edge, and we thought this would be ideal to bring to the community.”

Also a perfect fit is Kearney’s opening act and Georgia native Hearn.

While driving with her husband on their way to Iowa, she talked with the DI about her music, her life over this past year, and singing the “Donky Kong” song to get pumped before shows.

“I want my music to be relatable. I love to have fun onstage, whether I’m by myself or with my band, and to tell a story,” she said. “I have a background in country and folk music, but I love pop, too, so I wanted to merge the two and create a really catchy, yet meaningful sound.”

This will be the first time Hearn has been to Iowa, but her friends from here gave the state a glowing recommendation.

“They said that it’s just all cornfields, but I don’t believe them,” she joked.

Nevertheless, she said, she is very excited to come here, meet new people, and open for Kearney again.

“It kind of takes the pressure off, opening up for someone else’s fans,” she said. “You kind of know they aren’t really there to see you, so you just want to have fun and make a good impression.”

Kearney’s fans on campus are very excited to see him.

UI freshman Maggie Wyatt has “loved” Kearney and his music since seeing him perform live.

“I went to the Basilica Block Party in Minneapolis one year, and he was playing,” she said. “He was such a great performer and really engaged the audience. I felt like I was listening to his record.”

Wyatt said she often turns on Kearney’s tunes when she needs to relax, saying the relatable and laid-back attitude of his music is quite soothing.

But SCOPE’s Sheehy doesn’t expect to see fans asleep in their seats tonight. ?

“Mat Kearney has a really devoted fan base, and his songs are so catchy and sing-along-able (technical term),” she said. “I’m confident that we’ll have a really gracious, welcoming crowd, and the venue space is really beautiful as well. It’ll be dope.”

As for what’s in store for SCOPE this fall, Sheehy’s and Monfils’ lips are sealed. However, both said many things are in the works, including collaborating with Hawks Nest for Hawkapolooza Five.

“I can’t reveal very much information, but Iowa City will be in for some BIG stuff, so everyone should get pumped,” Sheehy said, “It’s going to be a powerhouse fall semester, and we’re collaborating with some other student organizations to bring an amazing lineup of acts. Get ready to U-bill mad tickets, y’all.” - Daily Iowan

"Interview:Emily Hearn-The White Mule April 1"

Never underestimate the power of the internet–especially when you combine a talented singer/songwriter and an A-List celebrity.

With over 20,000 hits in roughly a month, “Rooftop,” starring Bill Murray, has helped propel 20 year old Emily Hearn directly onto that proverbial music radar. The critics out there may want to place the blame of the buzz around her on Bill Murray or hippos but look deeper and this has been a grassroots process. Visit her YouTube page and you will find tour blogs, live videos and yes, Bill Murray banging on a drum. Combine that web presence with a constant string of tour dates, a self-released EP, and catchy pop tunes in the same stylings as Colbie Caillat and Sara Bareilles and you have yourself the making of a pop star with substance.

Catch her at The White Mule on April 1 at Haley Dreis’ EP release show. Dreis, who will be performing with a full band, is a talented Columbia, SC singer/songwriter in her own rite. She will be performing songs off her brand new EP, “Taking Time,” which was released March 15 of this year.

Your Paper Hearts EP was released on April 10, 2010. Describe the process that lead up to the recording. Where was it recorded? Did you bring on a producer? Did you bring in any songwriters?

Up until I started recording my Paper Heart EP I wouldn’t have really considered myself and artist. I had written some songs about my best friends and about a break up, and I just put them up on myspace because my friends kept begging me for a recording. So when Trey Roth in Griffin, GA (my home town) heard the recordings and watched a youtube video of mine, he approached me about recording an EP. I told him I had no money, so we were just planning on putting something small together. I don’t think either one of us expected it to do as well as it has. Trey’s studio is in Griffin, so I spent my Christmas break recording with him, and then went back to school at UGA while he put finishing touches on the tracks. I’ve always been the type to write my songs in private and not really let anyone hear them until I think they’re completely finished. I get into this creative mode by myself that never quite comes out when I’m writing with other people. I’ve been co-writing a lot more lately, though, and I’m starting to enjoy it a lot! It’s more fun to write playful songs with other people, and I always end up writing the super emotional ones alone.

When did Mark Bryan begin managing you and how did that come about? How has that relationship allowed your career to grow?

Mark and I first met 2 summers ago when I spent some time in Charleston interning for my Aunt Mary Gordon’s book publishing company. Mark and Mary Gordon’s kids play together a lot, so one day she just sort of handed him my dorky, garage band demo CD and he gave it a listen. He liked my voice and a song that I had written, so he brought me out to his studio in Awendaw to record. So ever since then we’ve been friends and have run into each other from time to time, but it wasn’t until summer 2010 that he actually started managing my career. He’s gotten me some amazing opportunities. Since we’ve been working together I’ve gotten a licensing deal with All Media Music Group in CA, the opportunity to perform at Sunset Sessions this February, to kick of the Thursday night fashion show at Charleston Fashion week, and to open up for Hootie and the Blowfish this past weekend at the N. Charleston PAC. It’s been so amazing. I’m so grateful for him and his hard work. It’s made all the difference.

Touring seems to be an essential for anyone trying to make a name for themselves out there and make that name last. You seem to feel the same way based on your tour history. How important is touring to you, not only in gaining new fans, but on a personal level?

Touring is absolutely essential. Every time someone tells me that there are people in a certain city who like my music I immediately start working on booking a show there. I want to meet everyone who identifies with my music and I love performing in new cities. One of my favorite things about being on tour is that I get to hang out with new friends after the shows. When I sing them my songs they are leaning about my life and then afterwards we bond over our love for music and our common experiences and I get to learn all about their lives. It’s so cool.

I saw where you are currently in recording another album. Will this be another EP or an LP? Who is producing it? When can we expect it to be out?

I’m working on a new full length album that is expected to be released this summer. I’m working with Trey Roth again in Griffin. The process this time has been so much more elaborate and I’m literally giddy I’m so stoked for these songs to be finished. This is my first LP, so Trey and I are both really pouring our entire hearts into the production. Compared to my EP, this project is so much more extreme– the emotional songs are so much deeper and more heart breaking, and the happy songs are so much more bubbly and fun. The creative process has been a blast. I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.

What does the next year hold for Emily Hearn?

This year I’ll be touring as much as possible, promoting the new record. This is my life’s passion, so I couldn’t feel more lucky that I get to do this all the time.

Lastly, how did you get Bill Murray to bang on that drum?

Mark is friends with Bill Murray, so he burned him a copy of Rooftop and left it on his front porch. Apparently Bill listened to it and liked it because before I knew it, he just showed up to the set of the video shoot, which happened to be Wentworth St. We had some coffee, he told me he liked my dress, and we just started dancing to my song. It was an absolute blast. I am so so thankful to him and his generous spirit for just showing up to help me out. He’s an amazing person. - Scene SC

"Singer Emily Hearn to bring country-pop sound to The Ark"

Though she’s still playing below the radar, at the age of 22, Emily Hearn has already opened for Darius Rucker, starred in a music video with Bill Murray and performed for a crowd of 15,000 Girl Scouts.

Hearn’s upcoming performance at The Ark wouldn’t have been possible just four years ago if it weren’t for a bad breakup that inspired her to begin songwriting. She never thought the songs would take her anywhere, but when fellow student-producer Trey Rose decided to produce them into an EP, everything changed.

“It was kind of an experimental thing and maybe just a fun thing,” Hearn said of her music career’s beginning. “I labeled it as something I was just doing for me; I wasn’t really thinking it was going to be a career.”

But the first few songs sparked Hearn’s creativity, and she began writing more. Soon a passion developed.

“By the time I released (my first EP), I was like ‘Oh my gosh, I really want to do this,’ ” Hearn said. “It developed slowly but surely into my passion and what I love doing.”

Born and raised in the South, Hearn grew up listening to country music artists like The Dixie Chicks and, like many children, took piano lessons.

“My piano teacher was trying to teach me how to read the notes, the theory and everything behind piano, but, for some reason, I was just better at playing by ear,” Hearn said. “So I ended up quitting piano lessons, but I kept playing piano by just listening to songs.”

Later Hearn’s interests turned to her dad’s old college guitar, on which she had listened to him play country songs for years. With the help of some of his old chord books, Hearn proceeded to teach herself how to play.

“You can look up chord charts to popular songs, so I would just look up different songs and teach myself how to play them,” Hearn said. “And after practicing, I could play those songs and then I started writing songs from there.”

Her writing abilities developed with each new song and eventually those songs helped to create her EP “Paper Heart” in 2010 and then her follow-up album “Red Balloon” in 2012.

“I think that I create pop music, but there are elements of folk to it and maybe a little country,” Hearn said. “But the main thing that I’m going for is pop because it’s relatable — the melodies are catchy and upbeat, and so it kind of falls into that category.”

Despite the pop classification, Hearn works hard to make sure her lyrics are as real and genuine as possible, often putting her own experiences into some of her songs.

“While most popular music might not have lyrics you relate to — it’s just kind of upbeat, fun and catchy — I think mine has the lyrical elements of someone who tells the truth about relationships and life,” Hearn said.

With her upcoming performance, Hearn is excited to have those lyrics listened to by unfamiliar listeners.

“I’ve mostly played in he South in the past, and I just decided that playing up north, if I was going to get any opportunities, I was going to take all of them,” Hearn said. “I’ve gotten to play some colleges up north and I’ve gotten to play some venues in a few different states, and relating to a crowd that doesn’t have the southern or country background was really fun and interesting for me.”

With a new EP coming out this summer and with multiple performance stops, (including the Key West Songwriter’s Festival) Hearn has very simple hopes for her future in music.

“I love being able to do this on whatever level, and I hope that I get to meet as many people as possible and see as many cities as possible,” Hearn said. “But I just want to be able to do this and pay the bills, and whatever else comes will be welcomed.” - The Michigan Daily

"Beginning Her Career: Emily Hearn Takes on the Music Scene"

In the span of her college career, Emily Hearn went from someone who confessed she was not into “the music thing,” to a full-time musician with two albums, multiple tours and a music video with Bill Murray.

The lesson to learn from this story: life can take you anywhere.

Twenty-two-year-old Hearn says she has always been slow to call herself a musician, but the fact is her music career began at an early age. Enrolled in voice and piano lessons, she quickly discovered that she was not interested in reading music, but instead, playing by ear.

During her senior year of high school, she began to teach herself how to play the guitar, and it took her until the end of her freshman year at the University of Georgia before she considered herself good enough to sing and play at the same time.

“I met some roommates and friends that were really into live music. They got me hooked on going to shows, and they were always trying to get me to write and play music,” she says.

It was her friends who encouraged her to perform her first show, and then continued to push her to play at venues around Athens, Ga.

Finally, Hearn began to realize that she could make a career out of music. She withdrew from college during her junior year and admits that she is still in disbelief about the success that has followed her since that day.

Her success began when producer Trey Roth from Hearn’s hometown of Griffin, Ga., heard her music on MySpace. He contacted her, saying he wanted to help. The result was her first EP, Paper Heart, released in 2010.

“I made an EP, which was totally random. I had only written five songs in general, so I didn’t really feel like a real artist or a real musician,” Hearn says.

Hearn was taken even more by surprise when the director of her music video for “Rooftop” told her that he had special guest Bill Murray.

“They told me Bill Murray, and I didn’t sleep at all that night,” Hearn says.

The next morning, she met Murray for the first time. “He walked up with a coffee for himself and one for me. He said to me, ‘I like your dress.’ All I could say back is, ‘I like you,” she says.

Hearn followed Paper Heart with her first full-length album The Red Balloon in 2012. Compared to her first album, Hearn says it was easier to write for the second one.

“I was testing myself as a songwriter to see if I could write out of emotion,” she says. “I wanted it to be in the same vain as Paper Heart, but just more mature.”

Hearn says she continues to write news songs, and she hopes to release a new EP this summer.

“I am excited about putting out new music,” she says. “I’m trying to make some music that’s really fun to perform live.” - Exodus Magazine

"Georgia Girl: A Q&A with musician Emily Hearn"

At 22-years-old, Emily Hearn is a singer and a songwriter from the small town Griffin, Georgia.

Emily brings relevant lyrics with charming melodies. She has released one EP (“Paper Heart”) and one independent album (“Red Balloon”) in the last two years.

Starting out small, Emily has developed a large and growing audience not only in her hometown, but also across the United States.

Emily has a new EP coming out this summer and is excited to be releasing new videos on her webpage as well as on YouTube. “Red Balloon” is available now on iTunes.

She is continuing to book performance appearances to support the release of “Red Balloon.”

Hearn will be performing at the Evening Muse with Ari Heston on Saturday, March 9.

Q: How did you get started in the music industry?

A: Well it was really more of an indirect route. I was in high school and I loved writing. English was my favorite subject and I wanted to go to The University of Georgia to be a journalist.

I had a really bad break-up and so I started to write songs. Eventually friends from school would ask me to play at parties, which lead up to playing at venues. This grew to be something I really loved to do.

Q: What musicians did you grow up listening to?

A: Well I grew up in Griffin, Georgia, so it was a really small, country town. I mostly listened to Dixie Chicks, The Judds, a mix of country and pop music.

Q: Who inspired you the most?

A: Brandi Carlile. Her lyrics are just really honest and vulnerable. When I listened to her I thought, “I can do that” and I knew I could. Her shows really inspired me.

Q: I know that you have taught yourself how to play instruments; what instrument did you first teach yourself to play?

A: Well, when I was very young I took voice lessons, but they were nothing big or special. I didn’t have people telling me that I should be a singer or anything. Later on I took piano lessons. I couldn’t read notes very well, but I was good at listening.

I decided to quit my lessons and teach myself. The first song I taught myself was “Boston” by Augustana. After the piano I picked up my dad’s old guitar. I found an old chord book and learned the basic notes.

Q: When was the first time you realized that you wanted to sing for a living?

A: I helped out at Young Life Club. Young Life is like a Christian camp where kids come to learn and talk to each other. I sang to them; songs like Brown-Eyed Girl and Drops Of Jupiter. This was the first time I admitted that this was what I actually wanted to do.

Q: What courses did you have to take in order to release your EP album, “Paper Heart?” How did you get started with making the album and who did you get involved with to record it?

A: Well there are two high schools in Griffin. Trey Rose was a kid that went to the other high school in Griffin. He was producing music for other unsigned artists. My friends had begged me to put a few of my songs on myspace, so I did. Trey found them and got in contact with me. He said he wanted to make an album with me.

We put five songs on my first EP. It was kind of just experimental. I got a lot of hits and had my first real show once my EP “Paper Heart” was released.

Q: Have you been to Charlotte before?

A: Once a while back, yeah. We went through the city and ate at a burger place. It was delicious.

Q: What are you looking forward to the most at The Evening Muse?

A: I’ve wanted to play at Evening Muse for so long. I love Ari and we have similar styles of music. Evening Muse is a more intimate place and I’m excited to be able to tell stories and relate to people. I can play more acoustic versions and try out new songs! - Niner Times

"TimeOut Interviews Athens' Singer: Emily Hearn"

One of Athens’ newer songbirds is bringing their sound to Clemson’s singer and songwriter haven Moe Joe on Friday, Feb. 22. Emily Hearn’s current album “Red Balloon,” which she released in Jan. 2012, picks up where her debut EP “Paper Hearts” left off — somewhere on a sun drenched, oak-lined backroad. A music video two years back with suprise guest star Bill Murray brought more traffic and helped push her a little further onto the music scene radar, listeners stayed for the honest lyrics sung in the clean voice. It’s refreshing to hear an artist that doesn’t rely on complicated, overdone slides and vocal strains to hide barely comprehensible lyrics. It shows an honesty and vulnerability that breaks the wall between performer and listener, an aspect Hearn values dearly in her work.

TimeOut got the chance to interview Hearn, and she was everything one would imagine her to be. You expect bright, bubbly and cheerful Southern class, and you get just that and more. Even when there were technical issues, she took the extra time to let us figure it out. Talking to her is as easy as chatting with a friend — a very talented, interesting friend.

TimeOut: Do you know the game Six Degrees of Separation? Bill Murray tailgated at a Clemson game. He was also in your “Rooftop” video two years ago. I didn’t get to meet him though.

Emily Hearn: He’s hilarious, as expected, but also so nice.

He was so awesome to come out to my music video. The first

thing he said to me was “I like your dress” as he was handing

me some Starbucks. I literally couldn’t have imagined a better scenario — he won my heart. We just had a great time dancing and laughing together.

TO: How was the tour with Darius?

EH: It was so fun playing with Darius! I actually played a show with all of Hootie and the Blowfish in Charleston, and they let me come out and play tambourine and sing harmonies on “Hold My Hand.” It was amazing. Then went on to play another show with Darius in Spartanburg for his country music. He’s a great guy, and his voice is amazing.

TO: What are the ideas behind “Red Balloon?”

EH: When I was trying to decide what the new album would be called, I started listening through all the songs for anything that stood out as the most important. I realized that the song “Red Balloon,” which talks about a girl who wanted to put all of her emotions into a balloon and let them go, was the perfect song to title the album after. Because, after all, that is what I do — I put all my feelings into songs and then let them go. So that’s the idea behind “Red Balloon.”

TO: When did music start for you? When did you feel music turned from something you were learning to something you were living for?

EH: From singing in the shower to teaching myself to play guitar at 18, I’ve been musical all my life, but I never realized that I wanted to be a songwriter and a singer. It really morphed into something I was passionate about when I was in college. I had a lot of friends who lived and breathed live music, so they pressured me non-stop to produce something. Eventually they convinced me to start playing my songs out in the venues, and before I knew it, I

was hooked.

TO: Any musical influences from your family?

EH: They are all very musical, but terribly shy. I’ve always tried to convince them to have some sort of family band, and it hasn’t worked (yet!). It’s crazy that I’m the most outgoing of all of them, because I am actually very timid when it comes to performing, especially compared to most of my musician friends.

TO: Has there ever been a time when you had to make a conscious decision to choose music over another life path?

EH: Yes. I was in school at the University of Georgia studying sociology until 2011. I loved school and I was so close with my friends, but I wasn’t sold on my career path. I always found myself prioritizing music over my studies. Eventually it came to a point where music commitments were becoming so busy that I couldn’t make it to classes anymore without sacrificing what I really wanted as a career. So I withdrew and have been doing music full time ever since. I love it more than I have ever loved anything, but it’s definitely a sacrifice to go down a completely different path from any of your friends. It singles you out, and sometimes you’re lonely. But it’s also the best thing ever.

TO: The song “Paper Heart” really bops around, but the lyrics are strikingly sad. What was that songwriting process like? Why the contrast between tempo and subject?

EH: Well, it was a terribly sad song to write. But in the course of events I had really already come to terms with the fate of that relationship. So it was less of a depression moment and more of a chugging along moment, waiting to see when the right person would come along. The song was a last minute addition to the EP, and I can’t say I’m completely happy with how it turned out, but the lyrics to that song are some of my favorites that I’ve written.

TO: “Red Balloon” then has this sass to it. Is this evidence of a changing perspective?

EH: Definitely a changing perspective, and also growing as a person and a songwriter...I had learned to write from a more distant, while still authentic perspective. There are still very sad roots to the songs on “Red Balloon,” because I had my heart broken several times. But ultimately the way I communicated it was more mature, I hope. - The Tiger News

"One to Watch: Emily Hearn"

Rewind three years ago. Emily Hearn was just learning to play the guitar, a hobby she taught herself the summer before her freshman year at the University of Georgia. Fast forward to today and the 21-year-old Georgia peach is opening for Hootie and the Blowfish, Darius Rucker, and Grace Potter and the Nocturnals . . . even performing alongside REM, Stevie Nicks, Augustana, and Iron and Wine.

Former Girl Scout and rising star Emily Hearn’s favorite part about the music-making process is writing lyrics. No matter what kind of song it is, Emily says, “It never gets old, and I love being able to express what I’m feeling.” Emily compares her frank lyrics to those of another songstress, Taylor Swift, someone who she would one day love to collaborate with. Emily has come a long way from her start in only performing for her closest pals on long car rides. With the help of her friends, she progressively started playing for larger groups of people, and those numbers are still continuing to grow. Her first break came when her aunt shared her demo with the lead guitarist of Hootie and the Blowfish, Mark Bryan, and as they say, the rest is history. Bryan invited her to produce the first song she wrote, “Maybe,” and they have been working together ever since. Now Emily has a music video for her song “Rooftop” (watch it below!) which features Bill Murray, and her first album, Red Balloon, is currently available on iTunes. Emily characterizes her style on stage as genuine and a reflection upon her favorite performer, Brandi Carlile, whose writing, performance style and voice inspired Emily to be a performer.

Red Balloon - January 2012
Paper Heart EP - April 2010



Singer/Songwriter Emily Hearn can most easily be described by one word - “songbird.” The 23 year-old musician may be young, but with the talent of a melodic voice that hits high notes effortlessly coupled with an image that beams with authenticity, she is placed on the map with artists that have been on the scene for much, much longer. Calling Athens, Georgia home, Hearn pays homage to her small town roots with a sound blending folk, Americana, and innocent pop. Not only does her unique sound set the singer apart, but Hearn offers honest, relatable, and strikingly relevant lyrics that swiftly compliment the catchy melodies over which they ride. It is safe to say that she has won the hearts of a dedicated fan-base in Georgia, and is continuing to gain fans instantly from the moment her music enters new ears.

Emily is currently on tour, earning the distinct honor of opening for well-acclaimed artists such as Drew Holcomb and The Neighbors and Darius Rucker. Although she often plays shows at Georgia venues such as Eddie’s Attic and The 40 Watt Club, Emily uses her personal time to visit sorority houses throughout the state to give young girls an intimate acoustic performance. Gestures such as these prove how Hearn is incredibly humble and simply wants to spread her music in a sincere way. As time goes on and Emily’s success grows, the demand for a new album has become quite apparent. While on tour, Hearn uses what scarce personal time she has to write new songs, and plans to begin pre-production for a new album in the Spring of 2013.

Paper Heart, Emily’s debut EP, was released independently in April of 2010. With her first release came a great deal of publicity, stemming from the music video to her single “Rooftop.” Containing a cameo appearance from the iconic comedian/actor Bill Murray, the video was immediately launched across the internet on music blogs and social media alike, earning several thousand views within days of its premiere.

Hearn’s first full-length album, Red Balloon, proved how quickly and comfortably her melodies and lyrics matured. The album was released in January of 2012, and gained success even more rapidly than her EP. While promoting the album Emily exuded a great deal of confidence and unpretentiousness that were both noted and celebrated by critics and music industry executives.

Emily’s third release will undoubtedly please fans new and old alike. “With a hauntingly beautiful voice at only 23-years-old, keep your eyes peeled, because we guarantee this name will be heard more and more as the buzz around her only continues to heighten.” Exuding a humble attitude and innocence that simply cannot be faked, Emily Hearn is making a name for herself that only gets more positive as time goes on.
