Emily Scott Robinson

Emily Scott Robinson has traveled a quarter million miles and counting, paying her dues along the dusty highways of America’s wild country in the RV she calls home.

Along the way, she’s captured the stories of the people she met and expertly crafted them into the songs featured on her gorgeous debut studio release, “Traveling Mercies.” A meditation on human frailty and the power of resiliency, Robinson is at times vulnerable, at others, defiant and absolutely free. Her snapshots portray real people who live and love and struggle to keep their balance atop a world that spins endlessly beneath their feet. “Traveling Mercies” is a tour de force from a traveler, a survivor, an elegant chronicler of her own existence and those of her fellow wanderers.

No Depression wrote that Robinson's "gorgeous, nuanced vocals...sound like the work of a veteran performer" and American Songwriter said her "old soul shines through in her songs... creat[ing] music that is altogether melancholic, comforting and sweet." In 2018, Robinson was an official AmericanaFest performer and took 2nd place in the Rocky Mountain Folks Fest Songwriter Showcase. In previous years, she won the Kerrville New Folk competition, the Wildflower Performing Songwriter competition, and the American Songwriter Lyric Contest.
