About Emily E. Finke

 
IMG_5001 (3) copy.png

     Emily E. Finke is a veritable powerhouse of creativity and entrepreneurialism carving her own path in the entertainment world in ways not comparable with her peers. For one so young, Emily already has a lifetime of accomplishments behind her with endless possibilities and adventures ahead of her. Growing up being homeschooled allowed Emily the opportunity to explore and pursue her passions in creativity from a very young age including starting her musical journey at just six years old. Since then, Emily’s passion for creativity has continued to grow. Emily has garnered accomplishments in the music industry alone spanning from performing at Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House to recording and releasing music with credits as lyricist, composer, arranger, vocalist, producer, tracking engineer, mixing engineer, and publisher, Emily has continued to chase her dreams, running full-speed through the doors God has opened for her. Among her many talents and prodigious enterprises, Emily also boasts experience in acting, modeling, music (violin, guitar, and piano), writing, directing, graphic design, videography, and marketing. Possessing a rich, mezzo-soprano voice that is said to be the most beautiful voice of the 21st century, Emily is a dynamite, indie creative on track to leave a legacy that will not soon be forgotten. 

     With an innate love for the world of live entertainment, in 2016, Emily began pursuing a career in the theatre and performing arts. In 2017, Emily found a new passion and discovered her gift for opera and Baroque music, in particular, and she continues to train with renowned vocal coach, Craig Wich. Through this gift, she realized a passion to express her unique voice, and she began her journey into songwriting. Emily has now written (music and lyrics), composed, and/or arranged close to 30 songs which she continues to record and release. Emily’s timeless sound is inspired by her Christian faith, classical training, and love of early 20th century pop music. It could be said that Emily possesses a gift comparable to Glenn Miller, an industriousness similar to George M. Cohan, a personality akin to Audrey Hepburn, and a vision much like Walt Disney. Simply put, Emily is dedicated to her art and expressing herself through creativity while not letting the world's and industry's standards define her or her music.

     Emily believes that her many talents are a blessing and gift from God and, as such, are unequivocally dedicated to Him. Her whole life, Emily has felt called to be a revolutionary, to blaze a trail unlike any before. To Emily, success is not measured in wealth or fame, but in the opportunities she has been given to share her gifts and inspire others. To make a difference in the world by sharing the Gospel, spreading positivity and love, and reflecting the Light of Christ would be considered the ultimate success
