“Hushed acoustic strings that induce sways; a lilting voice that establishes intimacy and seeps into the soul. “Beautiful Goodbyes,” the debut album from Johnsonburg’s Emily Barnes, is a sojourn into the heart and mind of the 22-year-old singer/songwriter.” – NJ Herald

Hailing from the tiny rural town of Johnsonburg, NJ, 22-year-old indie singer-songwriter Emily Barnes has been wowing audiences of all shapes and sizes for the past 3 years with her hypnotic vocals and eclectic style.

A staple in the Northwest New Jersey music scene, Barnes writes and sings songs that belie her age. Songs of love found and lost, of hope and disappointment. Armed with an acoustic guitar and an array of imaginative tattoos Emily is no old school folkie but she’s no pop princess either. Instead Emily is true to her intuition, writing from the heart and turning heads with a voice that cuts to the bone. Think early Nora Jones with a funkier fashion sense.

Her debut album “Beautiful Goodbyes” was released in January 2014.
