Emily Whitcomb At Crooked Pint Ale House

Cost: Free

Live music at the Pint from Emily Whitcomb!

Emily spent her childhood watching too many Disney movies, causing her to think that all she had to do was sing to woodland creatures and wait for her Prince Charming. She has since given up on that fantasy, but the constant singing and early opportunities to perform onstage with dancing, acting and music, provided the foundation for her passion to entertain. Songwriting slowly crept into Emily’s life through school projects, most notably a musical presentation about high blood pressure. It wasn’t until Emily’s first year of college that she taught herself a handful of chords on the guitar and discovered her love of songwriting.

Her songs encompass a wide variety of topics from love and heartbreak to foster care awareness and synopses of certain 80’s musicals. A song she wrote in 2010 was selected as one of ten in the nation to compete in the finals of the Ford Belt it Out songwriting competition. Although she didn’t win the contest, it was a great experience and gave her some national exposure. Emily was recently named as one of the winners of the 2011 International songwriting competition,”Broadway Bound Musicians”

In 2010 she played the role of Ariel in Wits’ End Theatre’s production of Footloose which led to a jolt of inspiration and resulted in her penning the “Footloose Rap.” The birth of the rap coincided with the filming of the Footloose movie remake. Emily posted a video on Youtube of her performing the rap which was then seen by Craig Brewer, the director of the film, as well as many other cast and crew members. She was invited to an early screening of the film and got to record a remake of the rap with the Footloose stars! That video is included in the special features on the Blu-ray release of the film.
