For soulful singer-songwriter Emerson Day, storytelling came naturally from a young age. Writing songs as early as a teenager, she was influenced by the sounds of a southern rock guitar and an old church piano. Growing up on her family’s farm in Southern Maryland, she would sit outside playing guitar and singing for hours. God put a song in her heart long before she ever realized it.
Driven by career and athletic aspirations, Day graduated from university as a decorated Lacrosse player with her degree in Homeland Security. The same competitive nature which drew her to sports and a career in federal law enforcement, quickly engaged when she felt God calling her to pursue music. In a true leap of faith, Day began pursuing music, a complete 180 from her original plan. Thursday through Saturday she began playing shows in local bars and venues in her hometown. But it wasn’t until she started leading worship at a small church in North Carolina that God showed her the path he truly had for her. One of the first Sundays she led worship, someone gave their life to Christ, right in front of her at the altar. This moment solidified Day’s calling and passion for Christian music. She never looked back.Show More
