About Miss Emily

Miss Emily is Emily Fennell, a Prince Edward County singer-songwriter who’s been performing for more than 20 years. She’s recorded six studio albums, received a Juno nomination, and is a two-time Maple Blues Female Vocalist of the year as well as New Artist of the year and Sapphire Blues Video of the year. She continues to tour Canada, the US, the UK and Europe and has worked tirelessly for dozens of charitable organizations including the internationally renowned Light of Day Foundation for Parkinson’s research 

Since 2019, Miss Emily has brought the house down at venues across Canada, the US, the United Kingdom and Europe. In her debut headlining appearance at the Kingston Grand Theatre on October 1st, Miss Emily will be joined on stage by her friends Rob Baker and Gord Sinclair, along with a backing band featuring some of Kingston’s most sought-after musicians. This special performance will reveal her new album, “Defined By Love”, played from start to finish, as well as fan favourites and a few special surprises. “Defined By Love”, her third studio album, is a warts-and-all diary of lost relationships and found humanity produced by Juno award winner Steve Marriner. It features meditations on deception, resilience, pain and strength with co-writing by Rob Baker (The Tragically Hip) and the instrumental genius of Jimmy Bowskill (Blue Rodeo, The Sheepdogs); all grounded in a horn-drenched foundation of soulful blues and unparalleled vocals.  

Miss Emily was a Kingston Grand Theatre Local Artist-in-Residence in 2021, and she is a featured Grand OnStage Music Education Video Series artist.
