Emma Pierson is a young, vital voice in the pop music pantheon, of precociousness beyond her years. She has a ratcheting sense of unease, coupled with her hope and optimism. "Don't Forget to Remember Me" offers powerful resolution in order to maintain relationships. She layers the emotions of missing people and dealing with loss poignantly, a performance that is beautifully crafted and delivers a powerful voice on the threshold of change.
Originally from Baltimore, Maryland, Emma Pierson has been singing and writing song lyrics since the age of four. The natural-born performer, who was recognized with relative pitch early on, started her formal training at the prestigious Stages Music Arts when she was 9-years-old. Emma first worked with singer/songwriter and instructor Ashley Higginbotham, and soon began to pursue other musical outlets at Stages, including musical theater, as well as guitar with instructor Brennan McShane. She later joined a Beatles cover band, and went on to perform—alone and with her band—at various open mic nights and music festivals at Baltimore’s Union Collective.
At age 11, inspired by an upcoming move to Austin, Texas, Emma wrote and recorded her debut single, “Don’t Forget to Remember Me,” with the help of talented musicians and producers at Stages Music Arts. Ashley Higginbotham and Brennan McShane collaborated with Emma on the composition. Charles Simon, the General Manager at Stages, produced the sound recording along with engineer Dave Nachodsky, who recorded/mixed/mastered the song. Video work for the music video was done by Tim Szczesniak. Emma’s eventual move to Austin opened the doors for her to continue her musical endeavors under the guidance of celebrated singer/songwriters, Chad and Natasha Hudson. Along the way, Emma covered numerous pop hits, seen on YouTube at Emma Pierson.
