Emily West, aka Emily Marie Nemmers, was born and raised in Iowa. She knew from early on she wanted to be a singer, and at age 13 her parents took her to a studio to cut her first demos. Soon after high school she moved to Nashville to pursue music full time. She made her debut on Capitol Nashville in 2007 with a self-titled EP, cracking the Top 40 on the country charts with her first single “Rocks in Your Shoes”. Her rise continued in 2010 when she collaborated with Keith Urban on the hit “Blue Sky”, which spent 13 weeks on the charts. In 2011 she self-released her sophomore EP I Hate You, I Love You, an acclaimed collection that expanded on her country palette and peaked at No. 7 on Billboard’s Folk Albums Charts. Despite her success West found herself without label support by 2014. Undeterred, she tried out for America’s Got Talent, eventually reaching the finals thanks to her impressive live performance chops. With thousands of new fans and a renewed sense of creative purpose following the show, West released her 2015 debut album All For You to a No. 2 spot on the Billboard Heatseekers chart, and she continues to burn bright on tour.
