Featuring the single "Love is Killing me"
"Be sure to keep an eye out for Emma because she is going to be big." - Women In Rock
“Emma Hern, whose skills as both a singer and a songwriter are on display...shouts and croons her way through ["Love Is Killing Me"], which is about making peace with feelings you can’t control.” - Nashville Scene
"Hern’s self-titled freshman effort is slick and satisfying, drawing its inspiration from traditional rock and blues...It’s an album of familiar themes, love and loss, yet on repeated listens it resonates with a crisp flavor all its own." - Audiofemme
"The album beautifully showcases Hern’s hard work in honing her signature sound—a vintage-washed blend of sass and soul." - Mother Church Pew
"Melodically this record has its infectious moments and easy beats running throughout it that highlight the power of the vocal Hern delivers every time...A fun, honest EP, Emma Hern proves here why she is a musician to watch." - Thinking Lyrically
Nashville-via-Boston-via-Richmond belter Emma Hern is taking her Nashville-approved blend of americana, soul, pop, and a touch of glam wide with her self-titled debut EP. Taking cues from legends like Aretha and Bonnie Raitt and placing them in the age of Kacey Musgraves and Taylor Swift, Emma Hern is bridging the time gap with her retro rock-soul sound and on-stage electricity.
After graduating from Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music, Emma moved to Nashville looking to expand her musicality. Her first months were spent absorbing all that Music City has to offer and bringing life to her creative vision.
She wasted no time integrating herself into the local music scene. Within the first year, Emma played a long list of prestigious Nashville venues and showcases, capping it off with a slot at Pilgrimage Music Festival, which Rolling Stone named The “Festival to Watch.”
