On April 1, 2016, Chris Purkea released Back in the Ring. She left her home base of Portland, OR and embarked on a tour with her band that found them crisscrossing the United States and Europe playing over 70 shows in less than a year. Now, one year later, Chris is heading out for a string of U.S. tour dates to celebrate the upcoming April 2017 release of her new live CD / DVD combo, which was recorded during the Back in the Ring release tour at Jammin Java in Vienna, VA.

Chris’s elegant emotionality as a vocalist, and her flair and immediacy as a lyricist have garnered her favorable comparisons to Gillian Welch, Ryan Adams, Bruce Springsteen, and Patty Griffin. She’s earned accolades from such distinguished taste-making outlets as The New York Times, Paste, Magnet, Billboard.com, and The AllMusic Guide. She’s shared the stage with such diverse and esteemed artists as Dar Williams, The Lumineers, The Cowboy Junkies, Gregory Alan Isakov, Martin Sexton, and Ani DiFranco. Along the way, Chris has remained fiercely independent, selling over 50,000 albums through her own label, Sad Rabbit Records.

Emily Hackett speaks the truth. The Atlanta raised songwriter pulls emotions into her music, stirring in an authentic blend of self-deprecation that is both unique and refreshing. What poises her against the rest is the soul of a fiery artist ready to light the stage, all while staying honest as her Southern roots. Last fall Emily released an acoustic EP, featured on Noisetrade: The Raw EP. Her 2013 acoustic cover of Lorde's "Royals" hit over a million views on YouTube, was featured on Buzzfeed, won "Best Coffeehouse Cover" on Sirius XM and reached the final round of "Best Royals Covers" on Ryan Seacrest. Emily won Belk's

National Modern Southern Music Showcase, playing amphitheater tour dates with major country artists. Her duet with Parachute frontman Will Anderson, "Take My Hand (The Wedding Song)" hit over 50k Soundcloud streams in two months and peaked at No. 4 on the iTunes® Singer-Songwriter chart.
