Emily made the birthday celebration unforgettable. She blessed us with her beautiful voice, guitar, and just wonderful personality. There was not one person that did not enjoy her music and wanted to get her contact info! Thank you so much Emily!

We booked Emily last minute for our wedding (within days of the big day). I had a few requests to others on Thumbtack, but I was keeping my fingers crossed that she was available and she was! Emily’s background in music from the University of Puget Sound was a huge plus for me – I appreciate that she had a well-rounded background in music and performance, particularly since we had never hired any musicians and didn’t know how to differentiate amongst other musicians, other than music samples on their profiles. She was immediately responsive, setting up a quick call to go over song options, gave us ideas of what other weddings had, and even ideas of who we did NOT want to hear (this is probably something that’s often overlooked when hiring). Even with a few days to go before, she was still wonderful with adding a new song to her list. An idea of the music we requested, The Lumineers, Christina Perri, Sixpence None The Richer, Train, The Goo Goo Dolls...basically late 90's-early 2000s... To get a better idea of the setting, we had less than 20 people at a poolside backyard reception on a sunny Sunday afternoon and we wanted a laidback, acoustic musical experience. Other than 2 specific songs, we gave Emily a general list of song and artists we liked or wanted to hear to create the ambience we were looking for. Emily executed beautifully! Emily not only put together a curated playlist, but also sweetly sang a duet with one of our guests! She set the mood perfectly for us with her sweet, melodic voice and made our first dance so incredibly special. I wish I could get married a second time just to have her recreate the ethereal aura of that day! https://vimeo.com/user103841292/review/365859554/3a8641705f

We hired Emily for a one hour Zoom love performance and she was AMAZING! Super flexible regarding the performance platform and even took requests from the attendees.

Emily has a voice of an angel, she will be a regular vendor at our assisted living and memory care venue. She sang her original songs and customize songs to sing that our seniors know. Even our staff stopped by to hear her. On time, easy to work with. Took time to talk to residents afterwards that wanted to say how much they liked her voice. I recommend her.
