Emily Cavanagh

Emily Cavanagh is a Singer/Songwriter in NYC originally from Chicago. A working musician & published songwriter, Emily has made a career for herself at the intersection of music & service--gigging, touring, writing, & bringing music to marginalized communities in the states & abroad-including homeless New Yorkers, refugee communities, LGBTQ youth, & seniors with memory loss. In response to the Covid 19 pandemic, Emily launched a music initiative called "A Song for You" writing & sending original songs to patients and families hit hardest by the pandemic, primarily those at the end of life. This project is now launched in hospitals & hospices across the country & features songs of local, touring, & grammy award winning songwriters.

As a Songwriter herself, Emily's music reflects a throwback sound of the 30's, 40's,& 50's while maintaining a great folk & pop sensibility. Her work can be found in various commercial placements & Irish radio. The instrumental of her song "Treehouse" was featured in the 2017 trailer for Woody Harrelson's film "Wilson." Emily is a touring artist, performing in cities like New York City, Chicago, Dublin, and Nashville, and as a regular here at Rockwood. Her music can be found on all major streaming sites.
