“My mission is to explore and understand the universal language of music from all around the world and share a connection with others.”
Emily Stanton is an American soul/R&B vocalist, composer, lyricist and performer. Born in Boise, Idaho, she first became interested in music at an early age singing/playing the violin at age 6. Growing up, Stanton sang in choirs and played multiple instruments. At age 16, Emily was offered a job in a cover band playing bars/clubs. “I remember taking my breaks outside because I wasn’t old enough to stay in the bar.” Her fascination with live music grew.
“I’ve always enjoyed entertaining and playing different styles of music.” She spent a year in Salt Lake City, Utah traveling & playing live shows with multiple different bands ranging from Bluegrass, Jazz, Country, R&B, Soul, Motown.
Upon moving back to Boise, she started The Emily Stanton Band which has taken off so quickly it’s obvious to everyone that hears her voice that this is her true calling. “I’m so grateful to be pursuing my dream of writing, recording and sharing the stage with such an amazing band, I’m really looking forward to creating more funky, soulful tunes for the future.” Backed by a band of some of the finest musicians in the Northwest, this is a show you’ll want to experience!
