Emily Cavanagh's unique sound is influenced by the singers of the forty’s and fifty’s, while maintaining a great pop sensibility. She is both a published songwriter,and regular performer in cities like NYC, Chicago, Nashville, and Dublin. Cavanagh’s latest EP, "Paper Moon," written entirely in Ireland and produced by grammy nominated Leo Sidran was released in 2017 both in the states and abroad, playing on major music platforms Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora, Tidal, iHeartRadio, and Dublin Radio. Her live covers project, "Bootlegs from the Continental" was released in early 2018. Since the release of her first full length record, “Keep it with Mine” which USA Today called "a little gem," Cavanagh has found success playing notable venues in sold out rooms across the country. She often plays abroad in Ireland alongside acts like multi-platinum selling Irish singer/songwriters, Paddy Casey and Mundy. She’s provided back up vocals for James Apollo (opening for Lord Huron) and written for the Paris based band, Neeskens. As a writer, the instrumental of her song "Treehouse" was featured in the trailer for Woody Harrelson's film "Wilson," a Fox Searchlight Picture. Cavanagh is a strong activist, with a background in social work who continues to lend her voice & work to causes like homelessness—working with refugees & under-served populations worldwide. She remains passionate about using music as a means to help people find their voice while sharing her own with all of us.
