Emily Rose, who began writing music at age 15, told the Metro Times that her songs could be called folk. “I guess that’s what you would call it. I used to do more first-person narrative songs, and now it’s kind of a fragmented narrative. As I’ve grown as a person, so have the songs. I have one foot in fact and one foot in fiction. I do story songs.”
She's been a favorite at the Detroit Music Awards, where she has won the Outstanding Acoustic Songwriter title in 2009, 2010, 2013 and 2017. She also won the 2014 Outstanding Acoustic Artist award. She has published two albums, "Cocoon Stew: Songs I Wrote as a Caterpillar" (2009) and "Porchlight Tragical" (2011). "Cemetery Tea Party," Emily's first book of poetry, was published in 2014.
