Bio

Emily Shreve is a Denver based solo vocalist/pianist who has grown into a captivating singer/songwriter with a commanding presence. “[Emily] has a unique vocal quality that sets her apart from her contemporaries… Her music can be quite profound, fierce, but also very straightforward and warm.” (Charlie Sullivan, Colorado Music Buzz 2014) “She builds crescendo swells on the keys that lead you into her musing lyrics and just when they sound the most forceful, she lets them fall faintly into a soft silence. Awesome.” (Hannah Oreskovich, Bolder Beat 2015)

 

Emily spent her early years as a young performer, but after a necessary 5 year haitus from music, Emily started composing what comprises her current body of work only 2 years ago. It’s quickly becoming apparent that she’s in her element and it’s paying off. Her debut EP, Spirals/Dreams featured some of her compositions recorded live on a grand piano and proved she can put on an impressive performance with only a bare bones setup. She is now about to release her second album entitled Bliss And Gravity featuring lush vocal harmonies done by Shreve herself as well as guest guitars, bass, and drums.

 

Emily is finding her stride in the Denver scene performing often and connecting with audiences across the front range. If you haven’t seen her live, check out her tour schedule at http://emilyshreve.com/shows.  Her new album Bliss And Gravity releases August 28th at the Mercury Cafe at 7:30 PM.
