Music: Emily Chambers CD Release PartyDetails: Emily Chambers is a dynamic vocalist with a sultry tone and a powerhouse range. With a love for classic soul and R&B, she combines an old school Motown vibe with hints of hip hop and a little bit of Southern grit, to give you a fresh sound that hits you in the gut. After attending Berklee College of Music in Boston, Emily took to the streets of Europe busking her way across the South of France and Italy; it was there that she began to hone the voice that commands attention. After returning to Vancouver, Emily formed a 5 piece soul/pop/funk band called Champagne Republic (@champagnerepublic). The band released their debut EP in the summer of 2014. After 5 years together, she decided it was time to venture out on her own and went solo in 2015.-Time: 7:00pm – Where: The Bourbon Bar at the Columbia City Theater (4916 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA 98118) More Info Here

Drawing from a widely-cast net of influences (listeners have reported traces of rock/pop/jazz/r&b/trip-hop, among many other genres) and an embarrassment of riches in the musicianship department (each member ranks among Seattle’s most in-demand studio musicians), the band has quickly established renowned for their meticulously crafted & distinctive songwriting, their commanding live shows & their utterly seamless ensemble mentality.-Time: 8:30pm (Doors open at 7:30pm) – Where: The Royal Room (5000 Rainier Avenue South Seattle, WA 98118) More Info http://www.theroyalroomseattle.com
