Hey everyone, I am Emily Brockman. I am 16 years old, born on June 26th live in the small, homey town of Petaluma, California. You could say I am your normal teenager: junior in high school, play sports, hangs with friends, and is always looking for something interesting and adventurous to check out. I love to draw, think, write, play piano, but most of all I love to sing.
My parents tell people that I have been “making noise” my whole life. I began singing with a local music instructor in third grade. I did not think it was anything out of the ordinary. If I wasn’t singing full out I was humming in the car, in class, in the shower or even at the dinner table. It just felt natural to me. I trained in Broadway show tunes and classical music, but by Jr. High, I decided to branch out and explore the infinite amount of musical genres from old classics, to Billboard hits.
On a chance meeting one evening, my parents came across Jay King from the group, Club Nouveau. Since that time, I have been recording in studios as well as learning the ropes of songwriting and the creation of music. I have started co-writing, coming up with concepts, lyrics, melodies, and unraveling the jumble of thoughts in my head. I want my music to appeal to all ages and have a story that you can all relate to. I came out with my first EP Head Voice last year and currently I am working with Grammy award winning producer Bob Cutarella on my new album.
In the craziness of everything happening these past few years, I was hit with a loss I cannot come close to understanding. My father passed away unexpectedly in April just two weeks after I finished recording my new album. He was a singer, songwriter, musician, and most of all a damn good father. He encouraged me to take a chance with the music industry and to not be afraid of expressing myself for who I am. My Dad taught me the love of music, writing, and exploring the thoughts we all face in this world. He truly was an amazing man and father.
Where this musical journey will take me, I have no idea. I only know that music is in my blood and I couldn’t live without it. As I travel down this road, I wish to learn and grow as an artist and as a person. I am so grateful for my family and everyone who has supported me. Stay in touch, there is more to come…I have only gotten started!
Thanks for listening and sharing,
