Still working on that hot first release.



Emily Summers began playing guitar and writing songs at only twelve years old, although she had been singing all her life. Twelve was also the age when she got her first real offer to open the world up to hearing her voice when Tara Park, the worship leader and wife of the pastor at Central Highlands Community United Methodist Church, asked her to become a regular member of the Saturday night praise and worship team. She jumped at the opportunity.For the next six years, Emily remained a steady member of her church's band and continued to write more original songs and broaden her skills on guitar.
In May of 2008, she finally felt ready to play her first gig in public- singing and playing her own music. Set at a small Christian coffee shop in suburban Pennsylvania, the show attracted such a surprising number of family, friends, and strangers that the venue was full to bursting. It was that night that Emily realized that performing her music was all she wanted to do with the rest of her life.
"I will follow wherever God leads me," says Emily, "but I have a feeling I'm on the right track. Whether I make it all the way to the top of the Christian charts and sell millions of albums or never even make it past playing at coffee houses, I know that my music does serve a purpose, and that God can use my voice to speak to others- perhaps even change a few lives."
Emily is currently a freshman at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, majoring in songwriting and minoring in music business. So far, Emily has written around 50 original songs and released one self-titled EP containing eight tracks of those originals. At school, she has performed at numerous venues in and around the city of Nashville and begun to work closely with industry professionals. But that's only the beginning.
"All I want to do is sing and write. It's all I know how to do. But more than anything, I want my music to bring faith and hope to a world that so desperately needs it, and glory to a God who so truly deserves it."
