Nashville country-pop singer/songwriter and Netflix Sing On Champion, Emily Daniels, will release her debut EP, Welcome To A Heartache. The independent project, featuring five original tunes, will be available via all digital retail and streaming outlets (Amazon/Apple Music/iTunes/Pandora/Spotify/Tidal) on Friday, July 23, 2021 (Symphonic Distribution).

Co-produced by Zachary Manno and Mark Siegel, featuring Emily Daniels co-writes, Welcome To A Heartache encompasses love and life chapters canvassing the varied stages of relationships–from disillusionment to awakening, the hurting and healing, settling for temporary or into a true love.
“This project is near and dear to my heart for so many reasons. Musically and lyrically, I have an absolute and personal connection to each track,” shared Daniels. “The theme explores every aspect of relationships; the first butterfly feeling, to the moment you walk away saying ‘wish you the best’.”

The musical compilation embraces classic 90s country invigorated with contemporary flair. Emily delivers witty, honest lyrics through heartfelt, powerful melodies. With a knack to write infectious, catchy tunes, the songstress infuses musical flavors derived from a touch of Shania Twain sass blended with a dash of Maddie & Tae honey.

The title track (“Welcome To A Heartache”) sets the tone to a spunky, playful progression with sequel tunes: “I’d Fall For That,” a pros and cons checklist of a budding relationship; “Stained Glass” revealing dirty secrets from dirty dishes, and the alternatively liberating “Breaking Up Is Hard To Do.”
An active member of the Nashville songwriting community, Emily is a regular featured performer at renowned songwriter venues in the city such as The Listening Room, City Winery, Belcourt Taps, Tin Roof, Alley Taps, Ole Red and others.

Emily’s likeness can be seen in promotional materials of some of Music City’s most famous tourist attractions; she is an apparel model for The Grand Ole Opry, Ole Red, Ryman Auditorium and Wildhorse Saloon. She has also cultivated partnerships with Arrington Vineyards, Cracker Barrel, the Green Hills Mall, Le Grand Verre Wine and the local boutique, Jondie.

About Emily Daniels

Rising country starlet Emily Daniels may be categorized as a “newcomer” to the entertainment business, but the business of making music most certainly is not new to Emily Daniels.  Emily grew up in Music City, and Nashville is the place she calls “home.” She learned to sing and perform early on and feels right at home in the studio and on stage.

Influenced by lyrical genius Ben Rector, melody queen Tori Kelly, the consistency of Shane McAnally, humor of Kelley Lovelace and Martina McBride for power ballads, Emily pays homage to the trendsetters and legendary greats with a unique contemporary sound and perspective all her own.

Having spent hours honing her vocal instrument, Emily has studied under the direction of distinguished vocal coach Renee Grant-Williams (Carrie Underwood/Faith Hill/Keith Urban).

The Pepperdine University grad (2015) studied psychology and her interpretation translates in strong hooks and authentic, truthful lyrics.

Emily’s talents have been recognized by the industry and talent casters. She was a featured performer at BMI’s Key West Songwriters Festival (May 2019) joining a number of extraordinary talents including Brad Paisley, Scotty Emerick and Liz Rose. Nashville Songwriters Association International (NSAI) has welcomed Emily several times over.  She performed at Tin Pan South, the world’s largest songwriters festival, as an NSAI featured performer in 2018; she was named “Writer To Watch” and awarded “Honorable Mention” at the organization’s annual Song Contest (presented by CMT). Emily has appeared on “Nashville Today” (WSM-AM Radio, Nashville) and was selected to participate in the global singing competition, Sing On (Netflix/Episode 8) where she walked away a winner.
