Emily Scott Robinson
North Carolina native Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home. Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” Named one of Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country and Americana Artists to Watch in 2019,” Robinson received critical acclaim from Billboard, No Depression, and American Songwriter for the stories captured on her new album.
The diner where the waitress knows everyone by name. The World War Two veteran reflecting on the end of his life. The windswept trailer park where people prefer to keep their curtains closed. As she meditates on human frailty and the power of resilience, Robinson is at times vulnerable, at others, defiant and absolutely free. Rolling Stone called “Traveling Mercies” a collection of “country-folk songs about America in all its pain and glory with the literate, Southern gothic sensibility of Flannery O’Connor.” Robinson is on the rise with her new record— a tour de force from an elegant chronicler of her own existence and those of her fellow humans.
Hayley Fahey is a singer-songwriter who captivates audiences with her sparkling range and originality. What sets her apart, in addition to her writing and voice, are her live stage performances. When Hayley is onstage, she’s home.
Her second full-length album, Out There, is a blend of many influences – the soulful sound of R&B that translates into her passionate vocal performances, catchy pop hooks that get stuck in your head, folk ballads, and blues grit. She has been featured on DCW50 with NBC journalist Mark Segraves, WAMU, the Montgomery County Sentinel, On Tap Magazine, DC Music Rocks Festival at the 9:30 Club, The Hamilton, the State Theatre, Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club, Rams Head Live, Strathmore Music Center, and others.
With every performance, Fahey wants to make a connection with the audience, through her songs, “I want to make them feel the emotions in the songs, and then get them on their feet dancing. It’s all about having fun, and enjoying the music.”
