Folk pop singer-songwriter EMMA CHARLESTON is once again appearing at the popular Rockwood Music Hall at 196 Allen Street, New York on Friday, August 18 at 7:30pm on Stage 2. The Rockwood is a favorite venue for live music on the Lower East Side in NYC. This is Charleston’s second appearance there with her band, having made her NYC debut this past June at the venue.
The multi-instrumentalist Charleston is about to begin her third year at the prestigious Berklee College of Music and has recently garnered significant media attention with several song premieres of tracks taken from her debut EP “Enjoy the Ride”. These tracks, along with her EP have recently been made available digitally via iTunes, Spotify, and other online sites where music is streamed and downloaded,
To further support and promote “Enjoy the Ride”, Charleston has just released a special recording studio video of a new composition "Don't Wait Up,”, through which she delivers to her rapidly growing fan base a message important to Charleston – support from loved ones can get us through even the most challenging of times.
The most recent member of a musical family spanning multiple generations, Charleston is influenced by her mother, the award-winning jazz singer, lyricist, and songwriter Rondi Charleston. Charleston’s grandmother, Elsa Charleston, was, in her day, a leading contemporary classical singer based in Chicago.
Charleston grew up in a music-filled house, one that fostered creativity. Starting early at violin and piano in the Suzuki method, she made her musical debut at age five. At age eight, she made guest appearances at Lincoln Center, singing background vocals with her mother’s jazz quartet. Charleston has since created, performed, and interpreted different styles of music, resulting in her development as a classically trained singer who can also belt out pop, R&B, jazz, and rock anthems.
Charleston has always combined her musicality with her theatrical talents. Her wide array of skills has allowed the multi-talented Charleston to star in, direct, and produce local and regional theatre productions of Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, Hair, Sweeney Todd, Avenue Q, and Urinetown. She recently produced West Side Story at Berklee.
Fueled by a seemingly endless passion for and commitment to her music, Charleston is also currently promoting her new EP wherever music is streamed and downloaded, posting cover songs on YouTube, and studying performance and songwriting.
