MISS EMILY

In February of 2020, only days after Miss Emily celebrated the Maple Blues triple crown of Female Vocalist, New Artist and Sapphire Blues Video of the year, the  world shut down. You could still hear the roar of the crowd as the door slammed  shut on performances, recording and almost everything else in the music industry. For the first time in two decades, Miss Emily had an empty calendar. With no  frame of reference for pandemics or lockdowns, it took some time to understand  what the next steps should be. Somewhere between virtual shows and long nights sequestered in the music room, an idea began to take shape. Of the many  cancelled shows, perhaps the most disappointing loss was a return to the venue  that had become a second home; The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts in her adopted hometown of Kingston. After six sellout, foundation-rattling  shows, fans, band, and team members alike had been looking forward to  extending the streak. In a moment of reminiscence and sadness, it occurred to  Emily that she had professional recordings from each show at the Isabel. That’s  nearly ten albums worth of songs.

After a quick call, Team Emily got to work reviewing every song from each of the  six shows. It was a monumental task but with time frozen in the wake of COVID,  trimming 150 songs down to 15 tracks went from nearly impossible to a recorded  reality by fall of 2020.

“LIVE at the Isabel” was released on October 30, 2020 to rave reviews but due to  the never-ending pandemic she couldn’t promote it with a tour. So instead, Team  Emily submitted it for JUNO consideration. When we shared our submission with music industry insiders, the responses were not what we expected.  “You submitted a live album – that’s crazy.”

“Live albums don’t get nominated. It’s a waste of time.”

Crazy? Not really.

Waste of time? Definitely not.

On March 1st, 2022 Miss Emily, “LIVE at the Isabel” was nominated for the JUNO  Blues Album of the Year.

That sequence of events – from the Maple Blues Awards of 2020 to the 2022 JUNO Nominations – encapsulates all you need to know about Miss Emily. She specializes in overcoming insurmountable challenges and scaling metaphorical  mountains. Her work ethic was forged in the foundries of Southern Ontario’s bars  and nightclubs. Her resilience is a product of 20 years in an industry that can be,  at best, “unfriendly” towards women. She has an innovative spirit and creative  force born out of necessity, and her incomparable vocals are surpassed only by her electrifying, roof-rattling performances.

What’s next for Miss Emily? The future is still being written but we can assume a  few things. Something will happen that would shatter the character of the  strongest soul and she’ll overcome it with grace and unrestrained optimism. Someone will tell her, “No,” and she’ll move forward in spite of the negative

response.

And sooner than anybody can predict, the world will shine a bright, white  spotlight on the soul-blues dynamo known as Miss Emily. It’s only a matter of time.
