Emily Keener Emily Keener Cleveland Cleveland based singer/songwriter Emily Keener is a craftswoman of emotion, and her take on alternative folk is somewhere between Joni Mitchell, Paul Simon, and Eliott Smith. Reflective and evocative, Emily’s music is a mirror and a magnifying glass, and she delivers her lyrics with a presence that resembles conversations in dimly lit living rooms. Keener’s emergence into artistry was more of a fateful stumble, and the difference between each early release exhibits a quick wising-up: from the Folk/Americana EP "East of the Sun" (March 2015) to her latest full length, "Breakfast", (November 2016) following a successful run on The Voice. Music Connection called Breakfast “warm, pleasant and smart”, deeming Keener “a born communicator.” In 2017, she received No Depression’s Singer/Songwriter Award. 2018 finds her writing and recording her upcoming LP.
