About Emily:

From the epic concert, 'United We Rise,' put together by community powerhouse, Shawna Marie of Captain Nasty and Ignite Movement Studios, back in 2017 - a concert to follow the 1st Annual Women's March in San Luis Obispo, and a great act of women coming together and creating something beautiful as a collective whole. This was such a huge day in my life and my personal growth; so powerful and inspiring. I'm so grateful to Shawna and all the other women who made it happen.

Emily Franklin is a musician from the central coast of CA. She has grown up learning to play guitar and piano from her dad, and always singing with her mom since before she could remember. Her favorites as a child were The Beatles and Fiona Apple (some of her earliest memories are mom singing along to them in the car), the "Harry Potter" soundtrack (singing the entire theme over and over for weeks after seeing the film once),  and - of course - the entire "Grease" soundtrack (which was sang and danced to in its' entirety many times with her cousins in the living room). Emily's dad turned her on to talented singers from Christina Aguilera to Bjork to Aretha Franklin to help train her vocal range and musical diversity early on. As her taste has developed she has grown to love Amy Winehouse, Eva Cassidy, Alanis Morissette, Elton John, Joni Mitchell, Janice Joplin, Frank Sinatra, Carole King, and so many more. She has her boyfriend Zane to thank for turning her onto artists like Ray Charles, Jerry Lee Lewis, and The Devil Makes Three - now some of her all time favorites. Emily loves the soul of blues artists like Etta James, Susan Tedeschi and Ray Charles; the cool passion of jazz musicians like Sarah Vaughan, Bill Evans and Norah Jones. She is inspired by the freedom of artists like The Slits who she thinks used their ingenuity and confidence to prove that anyone can get up on stage and share a piece of themselves - no matter how wildly unique or bizarre. She's been touched by the storytelling of artists like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Joan Baez as well as the simplistic creativity of pop artists like Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson and Adele. The electric power of rockers like Heart, Janice Joplin and Prince have started a fire in her soul that will never go out!

    Emily and I went to Austin this April and recorded with some great folks: Chris Gage (Jerry Jeff Walker), BB Morse (Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard), Matthew Hubbard ( Willie Nelson, Eddie Brickel), Darren Debree (Jerry Goodman) and Kyle Crusham (Dixie Chicks). Worked at Moon House studio and Windy Hill studio. Jay Curlee filmed some of the recording sessions for an upcoming piece about Emily in Austin. Then Emily took off and visited her ancestral land of Austria as a workaway guest, living with a couple different families and co-writting and recording some very inventive music. The Austin Sessions are coming to a record store near you. Emily is now playing all over san luis obispo solo and with her duo Osos Left. They are a great vocal harmony band with drive and overflowing musicality.
