Sunshine is in the forecast! Ten-year-old rising star Emi Sunshine (Red Light Management) will bring her exceptional talents to MusicRow’s Fourth Annual Rising Women On The Row event. Presented by City National Bank, the breakfast soiree will salute five music businesswomen on Tues., March 24, 8:30 a.m. at Nashville’s Omni hotel.
The prodigy singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist brings a confidence that belies her age. Emi has performed on the Today show and is a regular on Grand Ole Opry stage. She is slated for her first show at the Station Inn on Friday, March 6 and will perform her first industry showcase at BMI on Tuesday, March 10.
She draws from her East Tennessee roots to blend bluegrass, gospel, country, and a little bit of blues, creating her own version of what she simply calls “old-time music.”
As soon as she could walk Emi began singing in church. Her parents filled the house with music by Buddy Miller, Johnny and June Carter Cash and Emmylou Harris, which served as a foundation on which she built her own sound. “It’s kind of what came out,” she says. “I always loved that music and I thought, ‘That’s what I wanted to play. This is what I want to do.’”
