Emily Kate Boyd is an Americana, rock, folk, blues, and country music singer and songwriter. As a performing artist, she’s a poet and storyteller, making her live performance an original and deeply heartfelt experience. Emily creates threads of Americana that draw inspiration from the Appalachian traditions, Jazz and Gypsy Blues.
A woman of the world, her hometown is Chattanooga, Tennessee, though Emily splits residency with adopted home of Buenos Aires, Argentina where she is currently expanding her independent label, ARCA Records. Her latest release, “In the Woods”, includes sessions recorded in Atlanta Georgia, Floyd Virginia and Buenos Aires with local musicians in each of those cities.
Emily has shared the stage with many notable singer-songwriters, including live performances with Clay Cook (o/ Zac Brown Band), Shawn Mullins, Angie Aparo and many more. Her rich, bluesy voice is reminiscent of Laura Marling, though many associate her style with artists like Janis Joplin, Bonnie Raitt and Madeleine Peyroux. Best served in a listening room environment, Emily’s acoustic set brings a passion and energy that deeply connects with her audience.
What People Are Saying:
“Chattanooga native Emily Kate Boyd creates music with ties to the histories of country, blues and folk music—but even those genres seem to bend and twist around her bucolic narratives and gorgeous melodies. Her songs are stories with a commanding presence that can easily shift from aching emotionality to stark rationalization in a heartbeat.” – Josuha Pickard, Nooga.com, Chattanooga, TN
“Standout performer” – Atlanta Music Guide
“There is a mature, thought-provoking singer-songwriter at work here…. all incredibly good songs that push the limits of singer-songwriter artistry.” – Maverick Magazine UK
