Before The Voice, Emily Luther had stepped away from music.
Well, she’s preparing for two Christmas shows back home in Rhode Island.
The first is Dec. 7 at Savini’s Pomodoro in Woonsocket and is already sold out. The second is Dec. 10 at the same venue, and tickets are selling fast.
That’s a rather dramatic turn-around.
Then again, anyone who listened to the Emily Luther’s pre-Voice music that was available won’t be surprised. She has that kind of voice.
That voice helped her turn three chairs with her cover of “Summertime” and land a spot on Team Adam Levine in the Season 13 blind auditions. And it took her all the way to the Top 20 and the playoffs before she was eliminated.
Here’s what Emily, 24 when she auditioned, told Voice Views about the show and her music going forward.
Voice Views: I know everything we’ve seen on the show was filmed a while back. What have you been doing musically since then?
Emily: It’s been an overwhelming but beautiful experience even after filming. I’ve got a few irons in the fire right now, and I am deciding exactly what project works best for me. I’ve also been busy working on two Christmas shows back in Rhode Island to end the year with a bang!
Voice Views: What was your favorite performance from The Voice and why?
Emily: Without a doubt, “Glitter in the Air.” That song touches me in every way possible. It was the first song I had sung after taking a break from music entirely, so it will always be close to my heart. And to be able to share the song with others is a gift for me.
Voice Views: On the show, you said you’d stepped away from music for a while. Where do you see The Voice experience leading you musically?
Emily: I think, if anything, the show has taught me to trust myself as a performer. To stay close to my vision, and to keep moving forward. I just want to give my fans an incredible music journey. Whether it’s Broadway, a pop album, I hope they feel connected to me and my music.
Voice Views: Is original music in the works? If so, what can you tell me about that and what fans can expect in terms of genre/sound?
Emily: I do write and record my own music, so fans can expect that for sure. It would be considered adult contemporary, because it’s somewhere in the middle. Very similar to my performances on the show.
Voice Views: Other than the friends you met and made while participating in the show and the hometown support, what do you think will stick with you about The Voice experience.
Emily: My coach, Adam (Levine), taught me to trust my talent and stay true to that. I focus now on being true to myself with every musical decision, performance, etc. I learned a lot of that practice from the show…and I am grateful!
