Emily Ann Wesley is a southern girl with dreams of performing on stages beyond the comfort of her Louisiana home. Through many attempts and some failures, her passion to reach the world through music has remained one of her strongest desires. Through childhood to adulthood, Emily has always had a song to sing. In 2016, she appeared as a contestant on the farewell season of American Idol. It is here where the the dream became even more real. Upon returning home from Idol, after an elimination during group rounds of Hollywood week, Emily traveled back home to Louisiana to create her first single. Although she travels the world daily, the one thing that consistently keeps her grounded is music.
Since she was a little girl, the sounds of Whitney Houston, Dorothy Dandridge, Regina Belle, Beyonce and more captivated Emily. She would try her hand at writing songs and free-styling in video recordings. With time, she found her own sound. While it is a mix of the the rhythms and grooves she came alive to through her musical inspirations, Emily has a distinction of her own. It is a little jazzy, a little funk, r&b, some classic pop, and a lot of fun! Emily is currently writing and preparing to release new work which will be available in digital stores. Her first single “Vulnerable” is available on iTunes! A remix is also available on SoundCloud for download! Her latest single "Forgive Me" is set to be released on digital platforms on 9.29.17! It is song of forgiveness, strength and worth that she hopes resonates with listeners!
