Katie Sky (April 29, 2012)

Katie Sky ( is poised to be the next Natasha Bedingfield.  She has that hint of British accent when she sings (which makes sense since she's British) and creates perfect pop melodies as showcased by her first single "Sweet Sweet Melody." But there is a LOT to like about Katie so be sure to check out her debut EP "Paradise" and her FREE Covers EP which can be downloaded here:

Katie is also featured in the Emerge Music Spring 2012 Promotional CD!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!

Lera Lynn (April 15, 2012)

Lera Lynn ( is this week's featured artist and I'm going to hook you up with some of her songs for free!  This singer songwriter from Athens, GA has a great voice and a wonderful southern/rock/country sound going for her.  Take a minute to visit these sites and download some free songs: - download her cover of Johnny Cash's "Ring of Fire" and "Don't Make My Wait." - 3 great songs including the gorgeous "Bobby, Baby" and the honky tonk "Good Hearted Man."

Special thanks to Emerge Music supporter Rick Strasser for recommending Lera Lynn!

The Atlantic Light (April 8, 2012)

The only thing better than great new music is FREE great new music! And that's just what The Atlantic Light ( is giving to us this week!  This Maryland based pop/rock band has created a great EP full of high energy songs!  My favorite is "Hollywood Bound" but they are all outstanding!  And they are all FREE - just go to and start downloading!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!

Ben Burgess (April 1, 2012)

Ben Burgess ( has just released a great/fun mixtape and best of all - it's free (though this one is worth paying for). This Texas boy has taken influences from all parts of his life and surroundings to create a really unique sound. His songs combine hip hop, rock, southern rock and more and he does it all really well!  Just one note - while we usually try to keep it pretty clean here at Emerge this is album definitely comes with an "explicit lyrics warning." 

And if you're in a band please be sure to check out this blog about an opportunity to be on a (free) compilation CD!
