Emily Stuckey is an Americana/Folk artist and singer-songwriter. Emily was born in Fairhope, and her love of singing began at a young age. She grew up singing in church choirs and along with her favorite childhood musical movies.
Emily spent some of her childhood and teenage years in Jackson, Mississippi. That's where she formed a love for the blues and southern rock. Some of her influences are Dolly Parton, Emmylou Harris, Etta James, The Dixie Chicks, CCR, Neil Young, Susan Tedeschi, Norah Jones and Alison Krauss. As a teenager hostessing at The Grand Hotel in Point Clear, she met Steven Tyler from Aerosmith. He asked her to sing a song for him, and then timid seventeen year old Emily told him she only sang at home in the shower. She says if the chance arose again, she would sing any song on the spot.
When Emily moved back to Fairhope, she began singing with musicians like Ryan Balthrop, Melissa Bowman, Justin Fobes, Jon Cook, Pat McCan, Harry Sherman, Julie Sweet, and Savana and Anthony Crawford of Sugarcane Jane/ Willie SugarCapps. She burst onto the scene with her new self titled EP recorded at Admiral Bean Studio in Loxley with producer Anthony Crawford (Neil Young, Steve Winwood).
Emily’s CD Release Party is Thursday, October 16th from 6:00-9:00pm at McSharry’s in Fairhope. The EP consists of four original songs created with Emily's acoustic guitar and a pocket full of personal experiences. To learn more about Emily Stuckey, go to www.facebook.com/EmilyStuckeyMusic
