EmiSunshine, Alisha Hamilton

Anthem Entertainment and Wrensong have signed mother-daughter songwriters EmiSunshine and Alisha Hamilton to a global publishing deal.

Music listeners first became aware of EmiSunshine in 2014 when, at 9 years old, she performed a rendition of the Jimmie Rodgers classic “Blue Yodel No. 6.” Her family posted a video of the performance on YouTube and it went viral, earning more than one million views. In 2017, Rolling Stone named her as one of the “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know,” and in 2018, she was featured in the Elvis Presley documentary The King. EmiSunshine was also selected as the 2019 recipient of the ASCAP Foundation Desmond Child Anthem Award and recently collaborated with Rock n’ Roll Hall of Fame member Bootsy Collins on the song “Stars.”

EmiSunshine said, “Being included with such a prestigious roster of writers is such a huge honor and I’m more than excited to be a part!”

Hamilton added, “Being accepted as a writer is all I ever dreamed of! I can’t imagine a better place to create new music.”

Ree Guyer, President and Owner of Wrensong Entertainment, said, “Emi and her mom, Alisha, have been writing together since Emi was four years old. They are a magical writing team. Emi has a bright future as an artist/writer who is a storyteller to her peers and thinks outside the box. We are so pleased to be working with Emi and Alisha making their dreams come true.”

Tim Wipperman, President of Anthem Music Publishing Nashville, added, “Emi is an Artist/Writer brought into the family by Ree Guyer and our Wrensong J/V. She is an amazing young artist, and she and her mother Alisha have created a compelling body of music to propel that artistry forward. Look out world! Here they come.”
