“Her music is a cathartic outlet for listeners as she sings about everything from true love to the loss of innocence. Robinson digs deep into her past experiences to create music that is altogether melancholic, comforting, and sweet.”
"Press releases tout ‘breakthrough albums’ almost as often as CNN proclaims ‘breaking news,’ but for once, the phrase isn’t hype…Emily Scott Robinson really does deserve to reach a wide audience with this CD. Her songs are well crafted, with strong melodies…"
Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home. Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” The diner where the waitress knows everyone by name. The windswept trailer park where people prefer to keep their curtains closed. The UFO museum in the middle of nowhere and a love as sweet as California wine. A meditation on human frailty and the power of resiliency, Robinson is at times vulnerable, at others, defiant and absolutely free. Her snapshots portray real people who live and love and struggle to keep their balance atop a world that spins endlessly beneath their feet. “Traveling Mercies” is a tour de force from a traveler, a survivor, an elegant chronicler of her own existence and those of her fellow wanderers.
