Emily Kate Boyd is a North American folk and roots-rock musical artist from Tennessee. Her influences are rooted in the soulful, lyrical sounds of Shovels and Rope, Lucinda Williams and Gregory Alan Isakov, among others. She plays a vintage hollow-bodied Gibson ("Maybelle") complimenting her distinctive voice. On stage, she’s a poet and storyteller, making her live performance an original and deeply heartfelt experience.
A woman of the world, her hometown is Chattanooga, Tennessee though EKB splits residency in Buenos Aires, Argentina, often featured in the Open Folk circuit in South America and beyond.
Atlanta's alt-mag Creative Loafing once called her the "love child of Van Morrison and Ani Difranco", EKB has shared the stage with many notable singer-songwriters, including live performances with John Mayer, Shawn Mullins, Angie Aparo and many more.
Along with music, Boyd received a BFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of Georgia under the guidance of celebrated North American artist Radcliff Bailey and often sells her work at live events. In 2009, she apprenticed with SETH GODIN. Her work in South America includes spreading Godin-inspired ideas about the post-industrial age and composing music with South American artists who share her vision of hope and the power of art to change things and make a difference.
