(LANESBOROUGH, Mass.) – Rising singer-songwriter Emily Hearn
concludes the summer Seeds of Harmony Saturday Evening Concert Series at the Coop on Bradley Farm on Saturday, August 16, 2014, at 6:30pm. Hearn combines an upbeat, catchy pop approach, heavily influenced by her upbringing in Griffin, Ga. Described as “quirky, fun and flirtatious; smart, sassy and highly contagious,” Hearn lists the Judds, Dixie Chicks, Avril Lavigne and Brandi Carlisle as her greatest influences, and it shows in her mix of confessional country and pop melodies and beats.
In April of 2010, Hearn independently released her debut EP, “Paper Heart.” Later that year she embarked on a Southeastern tour, playing before growing crowds at iconic venues like The 40 Watt Club (Athens, GA), Eddie’s Attic (Atlanta, GA) as well as venues in Tennessee (Nashville), South Carolina (Charleston, Columbia, Clemson, Greenville, Spartanburg), and opening for country star Darius Rucker of Hootie and the Blowfish. In February of 2011 she released a music video for the lead single “Rooftop” featuring a special appearance by renowned actor/comedian Bill Murray, who drops in to try his hand at the drums.
Emily Hearn’s first full-length (also independent) album, “Red Balloon” was released on January 31, 2012. With carefully eclectic instrumentation and rich background vocals that beckon listeners to sing along, the ten-track album bears the signature Emily Hearn stamp – quirky, fun and flirtatious, with a dash of love had and lost.
