With a captivating soprano voice and award winning songwriting, Caroline Cotter's songs take listeners all over the world and into the depths of the human heart. Since her debut album, "Dreaming as I Do", released and reached #5 on the Folk DJ Charts in 2015, Caroline has performed over 700 shows in 45 states and 13 countries. Currently touring to support her second major release, "Home on The River”, No Depression calls it "sweet and smooth, and downright refreshing... raising spirits with one song, calming them with another." Icon Magazine writes, "Her well-constructed songs bring to mind the early work of Mary Chapin Carpenter.” "Today's folk scene has a new champion, one who encapsulates the sweetness, serenity and sophistication that has always made the genre so affecting in such a timeless manner. In that regard, 'Home on the River' is an absolutely essential record." (Country Standard Time)

Wielding a voice that defies the size of her body and strong storytelling sensibilities, Emilia has carved out her name as a unique songstress, know for a genre-bending style that's all her own. She weaves mesmerizing tales (complete with Greek myths, robotic messiahs, epic floods, and tax evaders) with raw, rootsy folk and dynamic vintage jazz vocals.

Born on a small farm south of Boston to a musical instrument collecting father and accordion playing mother, Emilia was destined for a life of music. She started piano, formally, at the age of five and trained classically for the next thirteen years. It was Christmas day, 1996, when Emilia decided she wanted to play the guitar. She went up to the attic, pulled out a warped and worn guitar, that once belonged to her great grandfather, and started to play.

Fresh off a year-long journey 'round the globe, she's ripe with new material collected from and inspired by the countries and communities she visited.
