"A few years ago, one of the Bay Area’s premier mandolinists, Dana Rath, gave me a CD by his daughter, Emily. My first thought was, 'I better listen just to let him know I did.' On first listen, I was so swept away that it didn’t occur to me to form any judgmental thoughts as to whether the songs were 'good' or she was 'good;' I just enjoyed the high on which her music was taking me. I have two CD’s of hers and every song on them casts the same spell. Emily is a complete package of natural musicianship in her singing, songwriting and playing that takes you to another place.

 “As a songwriter, she's blessed with a rare talent for melody and a knack for writing catchy hooks, qualities that are valuable commodities in pop music.”   

-Paul Liberatore, Marin IJ (Jul 26, 2013)


"Listening to Emily Rath's music is like curling up with a good book that you don't want to end. I had the songs in my head after one listen. Her voice is soothing yet extremely emotional, the arrangements are beautiful and the lyrics are highly relatable. There is no hidden agenda here. Emily is obviously an artist who loves music and wants to share her love for it with everyone."
