Artist: Emily WestmanShe/Her/Hers

Artistic Discipline: Music, Visual
Location: Spokane, WA

Born inside a piano, Emily Westman has gone on to become a multifaceted musician with expansive skills. Any given day, she can be found performing as a percussionist with the symphony, playing drums in the musical theater pit, playing drums and singing with her band, SISTERS, teaching music lessons to all ages, orchestrating symphonic music, producing rock tunes in her studio, or playing piano for the elderly. Having played piano since the age of 2 followed by drums, guitar, bass and percussion, Emily went on to study at a performing arts high school followed by classical composition and orchestration at the University of Miami.

Since then she has spent the last decade performing in hundreds of halls, genres, bands and countries. A consummate songwriter and composer, Emily has put out 2 full length studio albums with her band, SISTERS, that are available on all platforms. She hopes to instill the same fire she feels for music with everyone she encounters and would love to help kids (and adults alike) seek that flame within themselves.
