About the Artists:
Singer/songwriter Emma Hamel spent many of her high school years scrawling lyrics in class and singing in her bedroom before she began performing her original music all around Southwest Michigan.
Emma’s music pairs poetic lyrics with haunting vocals and stripped down arrangements that let the story take center stage. Her deeply heartfelt songs are filled with the hopes, insecurities, and uncertainties that accompany the transition from youth to adulthood.
Emma has been featured on numerous radio and TV programs and was the winner of the 2018 Acorn Singer Songwriter Competition. Her original song “Standing by My Side” about how it feels to graduate during a pandemic was a surprise YouTube breakout, gaining over 100,000 views in less than two weeks.

Michigan songsmith Andy Baker has spent 3 decades captivating audiences with his unique style of thoughtful midwestern folk. His recent accolades include winning the coveted 2020 Kerrville Newfolk Songwriting Competition, as well as being featured as an Emerging Artist at the 2020 Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in New York. His 2020 album “North Country Sky” spent a number of months on the National Folk DJ charts, and Jon Stein, host of WTBQ’s Hootenany Cafe declares “Andy weaves breathtaking lyrics and melodies…He left me wanting more…much more!”
