HADLEY KENNARY:
Hadley Kennary is a singer-songwriter whose music is a folk/pop blend of heartfelt, clever lyrics and infectious melodies. Kennary, appropriately pronounced like the bird, grew up outside of Chicago. In 2014, she graduated from the prestigious Berklee College of Music and has since independently released a full-length album and two EPs. Her warm sound is refreshingly honest and contagiously catchy.

Her songs have been featured in renowned songwriting competitions such as Rocky Mountain Folks Festival Songwriter Showcase, Kerrville Folk Festival New Folk Competition for Emerging Songwriters, Falcon Ridge Folk Festival Emerging Artist Showcase, and Telluride Bluegrass Festival Troubadour Songwriting Competition (where she won 2nd place in 2015). Hadley lives in Nashville, Tennessee where she continues to write, record, and perform live. Her latest release, “Momentum EP”, was released August 24th, 2016 and is available wherever music is digitally sold & streamed.

ANNALISE EMERICK:
“I’ve reconciled the fact that I’ll never live a simple life,” she says plainly, “and that’s alright with me. This is the life I chose for myself.” For Annalise Emerick, it isn’t just a brush-off. The self-starting, twenty-something, singer-songwriter has been on the road virtually non-stop for three years solid. The singer claims a scattering of cities as her muse, growing up in the rich musical heritage of both Seattle and Austin before eventually making her way to Nashville to attend Belmont University. In Music City she honed her craft, but it was several charmed summers as a camp counselor in Maine and New Hampshire that inspired her relocate to Boston and start her musical career.

In 2011, Emerick released her first project, Starry-Eyed, to heavy critical acclaim after it debuted at #9 on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart. The success of Starry-Eyed prompted a nationwide tour that found Emerick playing to packed venues across the country. Now, three years after the release of her first EP, fresh off of a first place win in the New England Songwriter’s Competition and a relocation back to Nashville, Emerick returns with Field Notes, a folk-inspired, markedly more mature turn for the singer that demonstrates just how much her endless days on the road and years of hard work have fostered her growth as an artist and performer.

“This album really means a lot to me,” she shares. “In a way, it’s a compilation of all the exploring I’ve done over the past few years… songs from being out in the world and experiencing life. These are songs about love, dreams, childhood friends, and stories I’ve picked up from traveling. The whole time I’ve been compiling material for this record, I’ve imagined an explorer out in the wild with a notebook just jotting down ideas, theories, and drawings. And that’s exactly what this album is. These are my thoughts. These are my field notes.”
