New York City native, Emily Curtis began studying music in early childhood and continued her study of
the piano at the High School of Performing Arts, where she also played cello and bass in student orchestras.
While in college, Emily taught herself guitar and began writing songs. Soon after, she was performing in
New York clubs and coffee houses including The Bitter End and CB's Gallery.
In 1999, Emily released her independent CD, "Radiate." The CD garnered much attention for the young singer/songwriter, including a feature article in Billboard. It also landed a track on the critically acclaimed, "Ovarian Cancer Research Fund Album."
Emily's voice and writing style have been compared to such influential artists as Carol King, Sheryl Crow, and Joni Mitchell. It is this artistry that recently won her slot as a finalist in the Indie Band Search 2001, as well as a management deal with The ModMusic Group.
Currently, Emily is touring the east coast, where she has shared stages with the Steve Miller Band, Patti Rothberg, Melissa Ferrick, and Paul Westerberg.
