Emily Kopp is busy. She’s been busy touring the Southeast, building a following for herself. With gigs opening for Michelle Branch, Parachute,Boyce Avenue, and Brandi Carlile, Emily has kept a full dance card as she plays live every chance she gets. 2011 saw her release her debut 5 song ep “Potential” to glowing reviews.
This college senior, is now in the process of working on her first full length record with Justin Beckler, and will be launching a Kickstarter campaign.
Kopp isn’t another cut and paste, 3 chord, female folk singer musing on typical save the planet by recycling, on an acoustic guitar. Kopp has managed to develop her own voice and sound in a short time and two of the 5 tracks on her “Potential” in particular, “Just Clothes” and the title track are jazzy, involved numbers with delicate musical interplay. Her songwriting is fresh, honest and as she states, in her song “Thank You,” “I have a plan, and I’m on my way.” With a radio friendly voice which is effortlessly soulful. Here’s a singer-songwriter performing intelligent, thoughtful and heartfelt songs about love and loss and redemption.
She has launched a Kickstarter campaign in order to record these songs, release them, and effectively get them out into the world. As an independent artist who is not backed by a label or investor, Emily needs to work twice as hard to stay afloat. She must raise $12,000 in order to pay for the expenses that will be incurred with releasing this album. Kickstarter is the world’s largest funding platform for creative projects of all sorts. It is a hub for artists to
share their projects & it provides a safe, and effective way for supporters to view an inspirational/xplanatory project video, fundraising goal amount, and deadline.
Throughout Emily Kopp’s music there’s a profound optimism that something better is waiting to reveal itself. The strangest thing happened as this ep played over and over; I began to look forward to hearing the songs once more from the beginning. Kopp is positively worthy of your time and investing in her is investing in a promising career.
