Emily Keener is an 18-year-old singer and songwriter from Wakeman, Ohio. Since her exciting 2016 journey into the Top 12 on NBC’s “The Voice,” Keener has been writing and recording diligently in an effort to capture the energy and sustain the momentum of that transformative year.

She started playing the guitar when she was 11 years old and began writing songs when she was almost 12. A natural curiosity and passion for music quickly had her performing frequently and writing constantly. Six years later, she has written more than 100 original songs and released three EPs and two LPs.

Keener’s songs are distinctly original, and the ideas she manages to express in them shows a soul that seems to be much older than a teenager. Before training with renowned vocal coach Joan Ellison and master guitarist Tony Schaffer, Keener was entirely self-taught and thrived on the time she spent locked away with a guitar and a notebook.

With the guidance and support of her family and friends, fellow musicians and many zealous music-lovers, she continued to grow in and experiment with her artistry. At age 15, she recorded East of the Sun, an original EP backed by the amazing musicians of Norwalk that once made up The Womacks.

A year later, she suddenly found herself in front of millions of people on national television with her astonishingly well-received debut on Season 10 of “The Voice.” Keener had the honor of performing songs from some of her greatest inspirations, including “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” by Elton John, “Big Yellow Taxi” by Joni Mitchell, “Still Crazy After All These Years” by Paul Simon and “Lilac Wine” by Jeff Buckley.

After advancing to the Top 12, Keener arrived home with a newfound sense of self as she walked directly from the plane into the studio at Waveburner Recording in Port Clinton.

Following her successful run on "The Voice," she released her latest full-length album, Breakfast, which has been called warm, pleasant and smart. In 2017, she received a singer/songwriter award from No Depression, a quarterly music journal.

Now, she’s preparing to unveil her latest work and prove that she's just getting started on her musical journey.

Performing with Keener will be Seth Bain (bass), Dan Fernandez (percussion) and Eli Hanley (keyboards).
