Emily Faith

Hometown:
Kingfisher, OK

At first glance, Emily Faith might seem like many other typical teen girls – growing up in a small country town just hanging with her friends.

But a closer look will reveal that she is anything but typical. Blessed with an extraordinary voice and love for music she began entertaining at a very young age. Growing up on the local Opry stages in Oklahoma and Texas performing traditional country music like Patsy Cline, Tanya Tucker and Loretta Lynn to Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert. She soon began exploring and embracing many different musical genres; which led to the development of her own unique style of Country infused with a little Pop, Blues, and Rock N Roll. Emily says, “Like splatter paint my music represents many different parts of me.”

As a young girl Emily was very shy, so it was very surprising to her parents when she begged them to let her enter a local talent contest. They quickly realized that their shy little girl wasn’t so shy on stage. They knew then that their little premature girl, who almost didn’t survive had survived for a reason – which was to share her God given talents with others.

A singer/songwriter, with many talents - Emily’s music is a perfect fit for any stage with her diverse catalog of songs she has penned. She often paves her own path including producing her own shows. She is a very humble young lady with a deep desire to help others. “I am determined to be a positive role model. I have very high standards and won’t compromise my self or others. Age appropriate clothing and lyrics are important to me. I stand firmly in my faith it has provided me with everything I need. My music demonstrates who I am and what I stand for. Music is like oxygen to me - without it I wouldn’t survive. Its part of me when I am happy, it comforts me when I am sad. I can’t imagine my life without music.”

Spring 2017 she opened a 50-city nation wide tour for the Newsboys and became a featured artist on Radio Disney. In the past she has opened shows for President George W. Bush, Marty Stuart, Sawyer Brown, and Bryan White; to performing at many historic sites across the country such as Tootsies, Bluebird Café, SXSW, House of Blues, Loretta Lynn’s Ranch, Six Flags and Disneyland this young lady has mounted an exceptional bio that attest to her hard work and dedication. In her spare time you might find her on a theater stage in one of the many lead musical theater roles she has landed; or performing the National Anthem at numerous events including the OKC Thunder games or NASCAR. With all her accomplishments she was named the 2018 Miss OKC Bricktown’s Outstanding Teen.

With numerous awards including a five time recipient of the Oklahoma and North American Country Music Associations Vocalist and Entertainer of the Year she caught the eye of Ken Caillat, producer - best known for his work with Fleetwood Mac and completed an EP under his direction. Recently she finished another EP under the direction of Emmy nominated producer Eric Berdon. And is currently working with top line writers such as Clint Lagerberg writer of Keith Urban’s Blue Ain’t Your Color and Zac Maloy writer of Carrie Underwood’s Temporary Home.
