Nice To Meet You
With music dubbed a marriage between "bluesy heartache vocals and pop songwriting smarts" (The Advocate), Emily Kopp works in the grassroots-esque style of countless artists who she most admires. She has shared stages with Matchbox 20, Brandi Carlile, Michelle Branch, Parachute, Boyce Avenue, The Gin Blossoms, Marc Cohn, ZZ Ward, Phillip Phillips, among others.
Kopp's musical beginnings started at a young age and continued throughout college in Orlando, FL where she studied Event/Hospitality Management at The University of Central Florida. She earned herself an internship at local music venue, working in the office by day, and providing hospitality for National touring artists by night. Much of her tenacity and knowledge about the music industry developed while cutting her teeth behind the scenes—hustling and watching from the sidelines. However, it didn't take long before Kopp was in the forefront herself.
She began touring the Southeast on “weekend warrior” trips during her Junior year of college, and by graduation in December 2013, Kopp had laid herself a foundation to work in music full time. Her strong sense of soul, lyrical knowhow, and pop sensibility speak to an audience. Whether she stands on stage with her bandmates or rocks it solo, Kopp’s live show is versatile. From gritty vocals alongside an electric guitar, to tender acoustic heartfelt moments and melodies, her connection with an audience is simply undeniable.
