Soulful, vocal-driven blues from Kingston Ontario

About

Miss Emily

In 1993 a then 12 year- old Emily Fennell was winning accolades not by emulating Whitney Houston or Celine Dion like her peers but by channeling Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin; belting out song choices that belied her age. Those traditional influences would be the foundation of a career characterized by fearless honesty and a constant connection to the roots of popular music

Along the way, she acquired an unparalleled work ethic by playing night after night in bars along Ontario’s 401 corridor while refining her songwriting and gaining a loyal following. This approach paid off as she grew her audience and advanced to theatre and festival appearances with performances at Montreal Jazz Fest, Harvest Jazz and Blues, Ottawa Bluesfest, and Beaches Jazz Festival in Toronto.

"Miss Emily has captivated fans across Canada, the US, the UK and Western Europe with her unique combination of impassioned performances and incomparable vocals that soar to emotional heights and span the genres from soul and classic Motown, to jazz, gospel and blues."

Today, in her adopted hometown of Kingston, she holds the record for sell-outs at the Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts and has gained the respect of Canadian music industry veterans like The Tragically Hip and Downchild Blues Band as well as the recent national recognition by the Maple Blues Awards.

Despite two decades of electrifying audiences in ten different countries, Miss Emily is just beginning to flourish. With two new albums slated for release in 2020 and in 2021, we’re excited to see what the future holds.
