Getting ready to release her second album, Emily Triggs has become known as one of Alberta’s established musicians. A singer songwriter hailing from Montreal, she is breaking down barriers as to what is considered folk music. “I have been writing and singing ever since I was a kid. I play music because it’s a compulsion so I might as well release art into the world if I’m going to keep creating.“ Triggs’ songs have earned her finalist recognition in Alberta songwriting competitions and radio play across the country. Her voice has also been accompaniment for the recordings of John Wort Hannam and Leeroy Stagger.
Emily will take you on a journey through inspirations and experiences that have shaped her alt-country/roots sound. Her influences span the US Deep South, Texas blues, strains from the Appalachian Mountains to her early years in French Canada.
Currently a member of the duo The Rosellas with Lorrie Matheson, and quartet band Magnolia Buckskin, she has also been a member of Calgary-based bands singing the sweet side for The House Doctors, The Fallen Angel Band, The Fragments and June Gloom. A passionate storyteller, Emily’s honest, authentic vocals and music wins fans everywhere she performs.
