EMILY EARLE & TOM WHALL – SUNDAY, 8/24 @ 2PM
After leaving an indelible mark during a successful run on season three of NBC’s The Voice, and earning high praise from the likes of CeeLo Green and Blake Shelton along the way, the rest of America now knows what her fans learned long ago—Emily Earle is one of the most uniquely talented and genuine singer/songwriters to come along in quite awhile. And she has only just begun.
After cultivating her talents during three years at Berklee College of Music in Boston, Emily set out for New York City, where she further honed her one-of-a-kind style by playing Gotham’s subways and some of the city’s top venues. Influenced by a diverse array of artists such as Sheryl Crow, Joni Mitchell, and Hall & Oates, she likens her songwriting process to painting, whereby simple words are transformed into emotions by adding melodies and rhythms much the same way a drawing evolves with the addition of colors and textures.
Buoyed by her growing experience and confidence, Emily served notice that she is a rising star when she auditioned the iconic Johnny Cash song “Ring of Fire” to secure her spot on The Voice. Now living in Nashville, Emily Earle continues her musical journey every day. In addition to her national television appearances, she has also performed on stage in Las Vegas with CeeLo Green and The Muppets, toured with her uncle (legendary American singer/songwriter) Steve Earle, and has had her work featured on AmericanSongSpace.com.
Tom graduated from the Baldwin-Wallace Conservatory of Music just south of Cleveland, OH with a degree in drums/percussion. While in school, he gained attention from local newspapers and radio stations with his self-released, “Uplift EP” Upon graduation in 2011, he relocated to Nashville, TN to record with producer, Warren Whitten at the world-renown Tracking Room Studio on Music Row, as well as The Brown Owl Studio. This EP sparked Tom’s strong beginnings as a Nashville artist.
As of April 1, 2013, a new record was released, showcasing Tom’s unique style and ability to tiptoe across genre norms. It was recorded with producer, Gus Berry at Berrytown Studios in Nashville. Tom is quickly gaining attention throughout Nashville as he performs locally with many up and coming artists. Tom tours solo and also, quite a bit with other artists (i.e. Emily Earle), performing all over the U.S.
