Emily's new EP "Water Year" was released in February of 2007 and is receiving quite a bit of attention. Hundreds of copies have been sold after just a handful of oppurtunities to expose it. The radio stations are excited too.
"This is something that not only I will play, but that I enjoy listening to as well. That's saying a lot for a DJ that gets hundreds of demos a month", says front man Jerry Builden for Kdov 91.7. Currently the station is playing Sparrow as the single.
"It is just so beautiful", said Ash, host of 97 The Rogue's local talent showcase after playing "Meant to Be". "Sparrow" is also in rotation at her station.
Emily's performances seem to get better and better, say her fans. She continues to return to familiar stages, only to blow the audience out of the water again and again. They keep coming back, and you will too.



With dream-like songs and unusual instrumentation, Emily awakens the soul in all of us that cries out for love. With her heart-felt lyrics, Emily pushes past the curtain to reveal a story within all of us. Using a looper on her guitar, Emily is able to create a full band effect while standing alone on stage.
"The looper has opened up a whole new definetion for a solo artist's live performance", says Emily. Integrating her own vocals in harmony, and even adding an Irish pennywhistle, Emily leaves the audience in absolute wonder.
Her amazing ear for music allows her to sweep up and down the piano keys with ease, as she springs on us everything from sultry ballads to flowing 1940s octaves.
Emily's sweet but edgy style has been compared to Sixpence None the Richer, Plumb, and Eisley. She has found her home in Portland, Oregon, where she is beginning work on a new full length album, much to the anticipation of her fans. It seems to be only the beginning for a long and full carreer for Emily Overstreet.
