Emily Stewart

Emily Stewart plays original tunes rooted in the folk, country, and blues traditions of the deep south. Emily first discovered her voice while sitting in a south Alabama church pew as a child, and her vocal stylings are that of a true southern siren. Her lyrics and melodies channel the strength of Odetta, the delicate twang of Kitty Wells, and the forthright softness of Loretta Lynn. Her band, The Baby Teeth, create an intricate backdrop for each honest tune using a wide chorus of melodies from banjo, electric guitar, and pedal steel, adding delicate layers to a spiritual songscape resting on a powerful foundation of rich vocals, drums, and bass.
