Many artists say that they knew from a very young age that they were meant for the stage. For young singer songwriter Emme Ryan, however, the story is different. She began her music journey by starting to learn the fiddle at age 5, which she still plays to this day. Although she was musically involved that way, she didn’t see music as a career path. At 15, however, everything changed. Inspired by her dad who had been playing guitar and writing songs her whole life, Emme decided to try it for herself. When she finished her very first original song, it was as if a switch had suddenly flipped on. She was soon writing constantly, and after getting the opportunity to perform one of her original songs, she knew there was no going back. At the end of her senior year in high school, she recorded her first EP and began regularly performing around the area. While becoming more integrated in the local music community, she teamed up with drummer/producer Brandon Geiger. Since then, they’ve worked together and with other musicians in the area to bring her songs to the public through live performance. They have now begun the process of making them accessible to an even wider audience through recording. In January of 2023, she released a single, “Constellation”, which was produced by Geiger. “Constellation” is a song that reflects on the lasting impression of relationships that end, however, for Emme, this is only the beginning of an exciting creative journey. Her music is not able to be confined to one category. Its purpose is simply to connect with peoples’ life experiences and become more personal and relational through each individual interpretation. Influenced by past eras of music, but also including fresh new perspectives, she is forming a sound that is truly her own.
