With an angelic voice and lyrics laid bare, North Carolina native Emily Scott Robinson is pioneering her own brand of roots music: Southern Gothic folk. She enchants audiences with songs that are equal parts playful, darkly funny, heart-wrenching and redemptive.
In 2017, Emily was featured on PRI's "The World" for her single, "Traveling Mercies." She was also named a winner of the 2017 Wildflower Festival Performing Songwriter Contest. In 2016, Emily won the Grassy Hill New Folk competition at Kerrville Folk Festival, in addition to an Honorable Mention in the 2016 Telluride Troubadour Contest. In 2015, she won first place in the “American Songwriter” May/June Lyric Contest.
Emily released her debut album, Magnolia Queen, in February 2016 and the EP Live in Birmingham in 2017. She is currently touring full time on the road and lives with her husband in a motorhome. Watch for her first full-length studio album, Traveling Mercies, produced by Neilson Hubbard, set to release September 2018.
Each week on The World, we feature a unique selection of music, and every week, we put together the highlights for you here. Emily Scott Robinson was one of the artists World host Marco Werman met at this year's South by Southwest music festival in Austin.
