It's me... Emma Lee

Well hello there, friends- if you've found yourself here, then you are reading the first in what will be a long succession of writings, videos, songs, and tidbits of my life as a singer/songwriter trying to be heard.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that most of this content is written and developed in my "free" time, haha- {is there really such a thing?} In other words, as I update this blog, it will be after an 8+ hour work day and 30 minute commute home. I will have probably have tried to squeeze in going to the gym and creating something for myself to eat for dinner. I will have overlooked loads of dirty laundry, passed through a bedroom with an unmade bed and shaken my head at the dishes left in the sink from three days worth of food. I will most likely be sitting on my couch with this laptop in front of me, thoughts going 100mph and TV on low in the background to "keep me company" until I finally shut down my computer and my mind around 2am. Rinse and repeat. Such is the life of a non-stop, 20 something with a full-time job and a passion to pursue, eh?

"But guess what- Emma, WHO CARES? You're a big girl now and the world keeps turning. The laundry won't wash and fold itself, the dishes won't magically be clean when you wake up, and most definitely, your dream to sing your songs for the world will NOT happen unless YOU make it happen!" Hmm, tough love, girl. Thanks for the reality check.

So this blog is basically the manifestation of my lifetime's worth of an innate desire and drive to sing and to share my voice with people. It's not an easy road- and it certainly isn't the "safe" direction. But- it's my dream and my passion- and frankly, I can't think of anything more disappointing in this life than knowing I didn't give it everything I had.

Follow me through my ups and downs, my peaks and valleys, my laughter, tears and tantrums. I want you to be a part of my journey- and mostly, I want you to pick up and join the struggle and beauty of following your dream too! Oh and don't worry- I'll make it as entertaining as I can- what's life without humor??

I'll end with this- my favorite quote in the whole world, by one of my most beloved authors, Mark Twain: 

20 years from now, you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. 

Xoxo, 

Emma Lee
