Detroit Songwriter and Storyteller Emily Rose Releases a New Album, “Wake Up Brave”

It’s been 7 years since Emily Rose put out an album and 3 of those years working on this new collection of songs. Her perfectionist approach to songwriting made it well worth the wait.

Emily Rose performs songs from “Wake Up Brave” and has a lively chat with Essential Music Host, Ann Delisi, about waiting weeks to write the last line of a song, spending years getting another song just right and her philosophy about songwriting.
