Award-winning singer-songwriter Emily Rose will mark the release of her third full-length studio album with a concert on Saturday, August 18 at 8pm at The Ant Hall in Hamtramck, Michigan. Celebrate the highly anticipated album, ‘Wake Up Brave’ as Rose unveils the songs she has labored over for nearly three years. Rose will perform solo, in addition to being joined by her musical trio-mates Audra Kubat, and Tamara Finlay. Fellow singer-songwriters Scott Fab and Carmel Liburdi will open the evening with their original music sets.
The Detroit based singer-songwriter has dazzled audiences in her hometown and beyond for several years now and was named “Outstanding Americana Vocalist” by the Detroit Music Awards in 2018. Her roots are steeped in poetic songwriters such as Leonard Cohen and Fiona Apple, and Rose began composing and performing her own music as a teen. Her mode of articulation borders on confessional, while grounded in observational story-telling. Taking on uncommon narratives and building their soundtrack – her reward is in the telling. Music writer Scott Kraus wrote,“Emily Rose embodies the concept of songwriting as calling over profession.” She released her first studio album in 2006.
In addition to extensive touring throughout the Midwest, Rose has had her songs included in movie soundtracks and the song “Seven Rooms” in the Detroit: Become Human video game. She is also an author of her first book of poetry, “Cemetery Tea Party” released in 2014. Rose has been a music educator for almost a decade. Her latest body of work, ‘Wake Up Brave’ will bring into focus the canon of this compelling and poignant artist.
Scott Fab creates a meditative intimacy through stories of everyday life. Scott’s latest record, ‘Leave My Friends’ was released last year garnering him showcases at Folk Alliance Midwest and Kerrville as a New Folk finalist.
Carmel Liburdi is a singer/songwriter who performs alternative folk with ragtime, punk, and jazz influences. Liburdi's fun performances are full of energy and soul. Her most recent release "Insomnia Slumber Party" was nominated for a Detroit Music Award.
