EmiSunshine To Release ‘Ragged Dreams’ In August

Teenage vocalist and songwriter EmiSunshine will release her fourth studio recording, Ragged Dreams, on Aug. 25. On the album, 13-year-old EmiSunshine tackles a range of topics from autism (“Ninety Miles”), to incarceration, deceit, and murder.

“I’m pretty sure that most folks expect me to write and sing about rainbows, butterflies and unicorns, but that’s just not me,” says EmiSunshine. “I like to write about things that are real and life just isn’t pretty sometimes…that’s just the way it is. I also get my song ideas from scary movies (I love scary movies!); I love the ‘shock factor;’ it’s just plain fun to see the ‘surprise’ on people’s faces!”

Produced by Sunshine and backed by her family-band, The Rain (father, Randall Hamilton-bass; brother, John Hamilton-mandolin; uncle, Bobby Hill-drums), the album spotlights cameo performances by notables Randy Kohrs (resonator guitar), Tim Crouch (mandolin/fiddle/guitar), Justin Moses (fiddle/guitar/dobro/banjo), Hitoshi Yamaguchi (cello), Ben Probus (fiddle) and others.

Digital Delivery Services will spearhead the global digital retail campaign.

EmiSunshine got her first taste of fame four years ago, when a homemade video of her performance went viral. She was the featured performer during MusicRow‘s 2015 Rising Women on the Row event in Nashville.
