Emily Donohue is a singer/songwriter hailing from Bainbridge Island, Washington. She started singing at an early age, but it wasn't until teaching herself guitar during her freshman year of college that she truly began to explore life through lyrics. She is a self-taught multi-instrumentalist with large repertoire of heartbreaking original songs; the deeply personal, yet universal messages in her songs resonate with audiences of all kinds. Her songs are an intriguing blend of jazz, pop, and folk and her lyrics are an intensely vulnerable look into her life. Donohue’s voice is frequently held in league with Norah Jones, Billie Holiday, Adele, and Florence Welch, and her lyrics are heavily influenced by musicians of the Pacific Northwest whom she grew up listening to (Elliott Smith, The Shins, Band of Horses, Fleet Foxes, etc.).
Currently living in Seattle, Washington, Donohue draws inspiration from the majestic scenery of the Pacific Northwest.
