I Give Music Away Because of ccMixter - October 4, 2014

After, my music didn't have a home. For years I explored places like MySpace, GarageBand and ReverbNation. None of them had that interactive component that made so magical. So when I finally found, it felt like going home. Now I compose and record with musicians all around the world, and my artistry continues to develop and grow. ccMixter is my muse! Would you consider giving $1 to keep ccMixter running free? Please? :) Thank you!


My New Album Open Soul - March 4, 2014

Listen to Open Soul - it's Free!

Open Soul by Emily RichardsI am so grateful to all of you for your encouargement and support over these many years! I was afraid to release this album because the production is so siimple. Open Soul is more like a live performance than a radio-ready album. I feel like I'm coming full circle, back to the simplicity of the start. 

I'd love to know what are your three favorite tracks -- that will help me know which songs to actually take the time and funds to produce with a full band and string section.

A special thanks to Kara Square for writing a beautiful press release about Open Soul. I'm honored by her thoughtfulness. The press release is available here

Of the 15 songs on Open Soul, stems for 13 of the tracks are available under Creative Commons license for remixing. If you click "Lyrics" next to each song, there is a link to the location of the stems on

Two of the tracks on Open Soul feature the beautiful cello work of Wolf Sebastian and intricate string arrangement of Bevan Manson. All of the tracks were mastered by producer Brad Stanfield. The original paintings and artwork for Open Soul have been graciously contributed by Ken Tesoriere.

Open Soul is available for download for Green Room members. I so appreciate your support! Open Soul will be available on iTunes in early April. 

Thank you again! Namaste.
