Emilee Allan: Country Girl 

Emilee Allan started singing when she was 8 years old with a karaoke machine her grandfather bought her. Her voice is both beautiful, powerful, and a great range. With a recent move to Nashville from her Michigan home, Emilee Allan is off to a great start in her career in the music scene. Her style is more country pop rock than anything else, but it has a soft tenderness to it that makes me quiver. Emilee has a range of sounds within her songs that displays her talents. The production quality of her music is excellent, as well. What’s so lovely about her music is that it has a strong

With lyrics that make you want to stand up and shout, “Celebrate You” is a great country pop song. It has a sweet violin part that dances around and grabs your attention immediately. Violin is one of the most beautiful instruments when done correctly, and I think that in “Celebrate You,” the violin is one of the best parts. Violins are like the “Little Cricket” from the film Men In Black. They are small but pack a HUGE punch, which is what makes them so wonderful when they’re in music.

Another song by Emilee you should check out is “Crazy Ride,” which is one of my favorites from her repertoire because it best displays her voice. When someone has a voice like this, they need to sing and share it with the world. Other songs you must hear are “Burned This Bridge,” “Don’t Leave Me Broken,” “Wrong For Me,” “Bad,” and my personal favorite “January.”

Enjoy and listen to her music here:

Edwardsburg Argus, Emilee Allan CD Release Concert
"She recorded at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville with producer Kent Wells. A lifelong Edwardsburg resident who always lived in the same house, Emilee’s glad to have her sister for moral support when she gets “a little homesick.” She performed at 12 and Porter in Tennessee recently to showcase her recording. In 2008, while performing with the Young Americans as a freshman in Niles, she was selected to present one of her original songs, “Today is the Day,” which cinched for her what she wanted to do after graduation. Emilee, who won’t turn 19 until June 18, is the daughter of David and Cathy Woodill. Her stage name combines her parents’ middle names. We caught up with Emilee Monday afternoon. On Tuesday, she was meeting with a producer to see about touring with or opening for other artists."
