Emily Hicks is an Americana singer/songwriter currently splitting her time between Salt Lake City, UT (for the mountains) and Nashville, TN (for the music).
At the age of 16, Emily scraped together enough money to buy her first guitar and immediately began writing music to process her emotions. She never intended to play this intimate music for anyone, but with a little encouragement from her friends, Emily began sharing her voice and songs instead of keeping them a secret. Once she started, she couldn't stop, and her career as a singer/songwriter blossomed from there.
Today, Emily teaches music by day and actively performs throughout the Intermountain West Region by night. Emily's music is characterized by bold, soaring vocals and intimate, reflective lyrics. Her musical influences include Brandi Carlile, Nanci Griffith, and Kacey Musgraves.
When she isn't performing or creating music, Emily can often be found in the great outdoors. She loves hiking, camping, and especially - rock climbing.
