I wanted to write a quick note while I had a few minutes. I’ve been extremely busy booking shows for the summer and playing all over New England these last few weeks. I don’t think I’m home for a single weekend until July. Crazy! I’m so glad to be able to say that though. The August tour planning is going really well and I am so excited to get out on the road for over 3 weeks straight. It’s going to be hot, awesome and hot!
Since it’s Friday and finally sunny outside, I thought it’d be a great day to release the 3rd installment of The Porch Sessions. This song is called “Home” and I wrote it last fall. It’s one of those that just kind of came out of me with absolutely no warning.
I’m happy to share it with you and I’ll be shooting more porch sessions in the next couple weeks, so stay tuned.
It’s March! I’m thrilled! We made it to (almost) spring. It’s only going to get warmer from here…right? I heard there’s another storm set to arrive in the northeast tomorrow but until I see a snowflake I’m holding out for spring. It’s the least this Texas girl can do.
I hope you’ve noticed a sweet new logo on the right side of your screen (scroll down a tad). That’s right I’ve officially joined Concerts in Your Home. I’m thrilled to be part of this organization and can’t wait to start playing in living rooms, backyards and whatever else you all can come up with. Name it, I’ll play it!
I’ll be using house concerts to fill in a handful of dates on a summer tour I am currently booking. So if you’re interested in hosting me head on over to this link or you can send an email to Annalise@AnnaliseEmerick.com.
I can’t forget to mention the show at Club Passim on February 15th. It was EPIC! If you had told me a year ago I’d be playing a sold out show, at Passim, opening for SETH GLIER, I would have laughed in your face. Seriously, dreams come true and hard work pays off. Keep fighting kids, keep fighting.
In honor of that day I released the 2nd installment of The Porch Sessions. Check it out below!
I love you all. See you on the road this summer.
How’s the new year treating you? I have definitely been struggling with the weather in Boston this week. Today I woke up and it was 5 degrees. Hah! And they expect us all to get out of bed? Ridiculous.
But I digress. The real reason for this new post is something I call “The Porch Sessions.” This is a new video series I have started. We shot the first group in December, when it wasn’t so cold but still wintery, and we’ll continue to shoot more as the year goes on. And yes, it does take place on my back porch.
Here’s the first installment. It’s a song I wrote with my dear friend, John Flanagan, called “Boston.” John lives in L.A. and we do a lot of phone and skype songwriting.
I hope you enjoy this!
What a year it has been. Whether you’re an old friend, a new fan or a random visitor, I just want to say THANK YOU. I have been all over the Northeast this year and I am one lucky kid; being able to do what I love, travel and meet all of you guys! From a cold, beachy festival on the Jersey shore, to the hottest days of a Boston summer I never dreamed could happen, to playing North by Northeast in Toronto, it has all been wonderful.
But the fun isn’t over yet, the best holiday of the year is only a few days away. If you plan on celebrating New Year’s Eve with the people you love, and I hope you are, then I’ve got the perfect song and video for the perfect New Year’s Eve night.
Stay tuned, 2013 is going to be a great year. More shows, more music and way more miles on the Honda fit.

Hello Out There!
It’s officially cold in Boston so those of you who are still living in 50 and above temperatures, appreciate them while they last. We haven’t turned our heat on yet but after the snow that’s supposed to come tomorrow, I might have to start begging my roommates.
I’m headed to Hartford tomorrow morning for the NACA Northeast Conference and I’m super stoked. It’s my first NACA showcase and I’m hoping to meet a lot of new people and book some crazy, awesome college shows. If you know of anyone going, tell them to check out the sampler showcase tomorrow afternoon. You’ll find me at the Hey Cole booth all day long. Shout out to Nicole Lipman my college booking agent who organizes all that for me.
Another important thing is coming up as well…THE MUSIC VIDEO RELEASE!
I got the pictures back from the incredible Melissa Fuller and I’ll be putting up a few “making of” blogs over the next couple weeks. Keep a lookout for a facebook event as well as the blog posts leading up to the release. I hope you are as excited as I am to show you this video.
love every one of you. stay warm.
Well Hello Out There!
I’m currently sitting on my bed, surrounded by books, an open suitcase that needs to be unpacked and a to-do list the length of a 4-year old’s Christmas list. I arrived back in Boston this afternoon after a complete whirlwind weekend in Nashville. We shot a music video! I can’t believe it actually happened. I owe about 40 people a lot of beer and good times. I don’t want to give too much away but I hope you’re all as excited about seeing it as I am to share it with you.
Now it’s time to hunker down and write a press release for the video and continue building a list of blogs, magazines, papers etc to send it off to. If you have any suggestions please email me. This goes for anyone’s personal/fun blog to a friend who writes for Paste. Anything can help in this process.
