Rolling Stone once named 17-year-old EmiSunshine among “10 new country artists you need to know.” There is no better way than to get to know this young singer/songwriter than “Family Wars.”
“Family Wars” is EmiSunshine and The Rain’s most personal project to date. With ten songs and one bonus track, the album addresses domestic violence, dysfunctional families, political corruption, mass murder, lost love, and freedom—those who have it, and those who seek it.
“The album is about working through different types of conflicts,” Emi says. “I’m just voicing my opinion about what I see going on in the world, but hopefully in a way that won’t offend. I’m looking at problems and trying to make something beautiful out of them.”
Emi has been attracting national attention since the age of nine, with appearances on “The Today Show,” NBC’s “Little Big Shots,” “Pickler & Ben,” the Grand Ole Opry and elsewhere. In 2018, she was featured in the Grammy-nominated Elvis Presley documentary film “The King,” alongside Rosanne Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ashton Kutcher, Alec Baldwin and other stars.
