Traveling, creating, and sharing original live music are a few essential ingredients for the enrichment of humanity.

His live show utilizes undertones ukulele, accordion, percussion, vocal harmony landscapes and of course an onslaught of acoustic guitar telling stories of loss, loss prevention, attaining street smarts, camping, the innocence of childhood, baby mermaids, time travel and walking till your shoes wear through.

Emily’s has been singing all over the world on cruise ships and taking over Seattle with a bunch of instruments, original songs, a loop pedal, and her amazing voice. Norman has worked all over the Western US, Nashville, Nigeria, and the Caribbean as a prolific songwriter, bandleader, producer, sideman/session bassist & vocalist. Together they’ve been successfully accompanying each other and laughing a ton since meeting at an open mic Emily used to host in Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood.
