Emily Elbert is going places. Full of love, soul, and wanderlust, the 24-year-old has performed all over the U.S. and in 15 countries around the world, from Peru to Palestine, from Turkey to Thailand. Raised in Texas on a musical diet of Antonio Carlos Jobim, James Taylor, and '60s radio, Emily first fell in love with guitar as a teenager. Electrified, she dove into writing, singing, performing, and recording, and set her sights on attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston. She soon landed a coveted spot in the Gibson/Baldwin Grammy Foundation's jazz ensemble, and was awarded a four-year, full-tuition scholarship. Now the recent Berklee graduate has played over 600 shows internationally, released three independent albums of original material, and won awards on both sides of the Atlantic.
