EMILY MARKHAM 'COLLISION'
‘Collision’ the new single from Emily Markham was co-written with Kelsey Strasek-Barker and Nathaniel O’Brien at the 2014 Academy Of Country Music. Created during a group session, the title came from a newspaper headline and all three songwriters imagined revenge as the key theme.
For Emily who had never written a song like that, she remembers feeling nervous but also excited as the words spilled onto the page, 45 minutes later ‘Collison’ was born. The trio also performed the track live at the graduation concert. ‘Collision’ appears on Emily’s 2014 debut EP, “Come On Over” produced by Matt Fell.
For Emily personally, ‘Collision’ made her spread her wings as a songwriter, and led to writing more songs with that same attitude and expression. Emily says, “I am so proud of this single, the road leading up to this point, and everything ‘Collision’ has given so far.”
Emily is a singer-songwriter, as well being accomplished in the guitar and keyboard. Beginning singing lessons at the age of 7, Emily’s passion for all things music began to grow. Picking up the guitar at the age of 12 allowed Emily’s songwriting abilities to flourish and with the addition of the keyboard to her list of talents, she has been able to grow into the music she now performs and writes.
The NSW South Coast resident, also graduated from the Academy Of Country Music Junior Course in 2011. After the Academy Emily performed at the Darling Harbour Convention Centre, at the request of Amber Lawrence, for the Special Olympics Variety Dinner.
In 2012 Emily took out the todayscountry94one Brand New Star competition on the NSW Central Coast. The prize package lead Emily back to the Academy Of Country Music after receiving a scholarship to attend the highly acclaimed Senior Course in 2014.
2016 saw Emily make it through to the battle rounds on The Voice Australia Season 5 followed by a working holiday to Nashville USA, where she wrote with some incredible songwriters. This material will be featured on Emily’s new EP scheduled for release in 2018.
