Daily Discovery: Emily Earle, “Tell Me Now”
ARTIST: Emily Earle
SONG: “Tell Me Now”
BIRTHDATE: April 18, 1989
BIRTHPLACE: Richmond, Virginia
AMBITIONS: Complete a Triathlon, learn something new every day (sort of already do that), write a musical.
TURN-OFFS: I cant stand it when people tell other people that they aren’t good enough. Not Cool. Everyone deserves to try and everyone has the right to have a dream.
TURN-ONS: I love baking, playing basketball, Fall weather, being outside, listening to Brandi Carlile, rock climbing, laughing…
DREAM GIG: It sounds stupid, but I think the coolest gig would be singing with Elmo on TV. Some of my favorite artists have done a version of one of their original songs with Elmo and ever since I was little I’ve said, “If you get to sing with Elmo then you’ve really made it.”
TV ADDICTIONS: Wilfred, Grey’s Anatomy
CELEBRITY CRUSH: None, I don’t think. I don’t watch enough movies to know many celebrity’s names.
PETS: 2 dogs, Gordo (15 year old Corgi) and Gimley (4 year old Corgi)
5 THINGS EVERY WOMAN SHOULD OWN: A taser for protection, a toothbrush because it would be gross if you didn’t, a dictionary so you don’t sound stupid, some form of chocolate bar because it’s good for the soul and… that’s all I can think of… haha.
MY THE VOICE COACH: is CeeLo, go team CeeLo
WORDS TO LIVE BY: Imperfections are what make things perfect.
I WROTE THIS SONG: with a friend in NYC, Jeremy Lubin. We wrote it in a couple hours. It was our first time writing together.
