Emily Kinney has transitioned from her young role as Beth Greene on AMC’s hit tv show ‘The Walking Dead,’ where her music and singing were often featured, to more mature roles in shows like Masters of Sex, Ten Days in the Valley, and to her current gig as an emotional, tenacious mother of a young girl battling cancer in the upcoming Netflix series Messiah.
Kinney headed to NYC from Nebraska at just 19 to pursue a career in music and acting. She started going to auditions she found online and in ‘Backstage’ and would sing back-up for singer-songwriters at places like Rockwood Music Hall, and the now closed Park Slope spot Bar 4. But it wasn’t until she booked her Broadway debut “Spring Awakening” in 2008 that Kinney felt confident to start sharing her own poems and songs.
After 3 records, Kinney’s breakthrough and forward momentum came to fruition with the creation of “Mermaid Song,” which she first released last fall via AWAL. “When I wrote that song, I suddenly felt a lot of freedom. I had been sending songs to managers and labels to get notes as I finished them, but with “Mermaid Song,” I truly didn’t care what anyone else thought. I loved the way it sounded. I realized I didn’t need anyone’s permission to put out the record or to legitimize my song-writing ability. I had stories and fans waiting to hear them. I could just do my own thing.”
Opening for Emily Kinney is Paul McDonald!
Paul is an american singer-songwriter from Nashville, Tenessee. McDonald placed 8th on the 10th season of American Idol, and since 2005 he has been the lead singer of the band Hightide Blues, renamed The Grand Magnolias in 2010. Paul’s performance highlights include sharing the stage with artists such as Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Crosby Stills & Nash, Zac Brown, Hanson, Father John Misty, Emmylou Harris, and appearances at festivals such as Bonnaroo, SXSW, Live On the Green, and Hangout Festival and on nationally televised shows like “Good Morning America”, “NBC’s Parenthood” and “The Tonight Show.”
