Emily Henry - singer/songwriter/recording artist (yes she's my daughter :) ) has been playing guitar since the ninth grade and singing since she was old enough to talk. She wrote her first song at thirteen years old, and she is working on her 2nd and 3rd albums.

Emily was a finalist in the pop category of the 22nd Annual Mid-Atlantic Song Contest for her song "Las Vegas." She has also received an honorable mention for her song "Birds Without Wings" in the acoustic/folk category of the 10th Annual UniSong International Songwriting Contest.
