Wielding a voice that defies the size of her body and strong storytelling sensibilities, Emilia Dahlin has carved out her name as a unique songstress. She weaves mesmerizing tales and poetic lyrics with raw, rootsy folk and dynamic jazz vocals. Known for memorable performances, Emilia's garnered national awards from Telluride Troubadour, Winner of the Starbucks Music Makers Competition, Winner of Boston Music Conference Songwriting Competition, to the Great Waters Songwriting Contest.
A teaching artist, who facilitates songwriting as a means for personal expression, creative collaboration, and language exploration, Dahlin’s also a fellow of Noel "Paul" Stookey's (Peter, Paul & Mary) organization, Music To Life, which supports and amplifies the work of musician-activists.
Emma Ivy is a folk-rock songwriter splitting time between Manhattan, NYC and her hometown of Portland, ME. Mixing elements of songwriters like Rufus Wainwright and Adrienne Lenker with the sophistication of Patti Smith, she released her first full-band record, “Aphid”, during early 2020. “Aphid” shares themes of leaving a hometown, reclaiming control, and love for the family dog. Since 2020, she has been writing and recording while focusing on her studies at NYU.
