Raised in Vancouver, BC Chambers now splits time between Canada and the US, residing part time in Nashville. But if you’re looking for her, chances are she is on an open highway. A road warrior at heart, Emily dreamed of quitting her 9-5, moving into a camper van and touring indefinitely. In 2016 she made that dream a reality. Chambers has now completed two US tours in her 1983 Dodge 250B, performing in LA, Oklahoma, Dallas, Austin, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Nashville, Atlanta, New York City and more. Some shows of note include New Years Eve at the Park MGM in Las Vegas, opening for R&B artist Andy Allo at The Mint in LA, opening for Jessica Childress at West Hollywood’s Peppermint Club, and opening up for the likes of Delta Rae, Walker Lukens, and the New York based soul-pop group Lawrence at Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver.
Chambers has been singing the Sister Act soundtrack since she was 3 years old. She trained with Canadian Jazz singer Joani Taylor from the age of 8 to 18, attended Berklee College of Music on a vocal scholarship and busked across the South of France and Italy. She ran a 5 piece soul-pop-funk band called Champagne Republic for 5 years before releasing her solo EP Magnolia in 2016. Emily is currently writing and recording new material for release in 2019.
“This song was inspired by a relationship I had that never should’ve happened. One of those situations where you’re just having fun with someone on the weekends and all of the sudden they have a key to your apartment and 7 months later you’re like “what just happened?” Too often we stay in bad relationships for too long. Real Talk is about getting into the dirt and confronting the uncomfortable. It’s not easy but it’s necessary. Don’t confuse comfort for love, and love for enough, because it isn’t always.”
