One of my favorite Central Florida musicians is Emily Kopp and if you haven’t heard her music yet, here is a chance to pick up her new single, for a donation to charity.
Her single, “Chasing Streetlights,” is available vis Cadence & Cause for a donation. A small 50 cent donation will provide a child with medication for treatment and protection against the seven most common neglected tropical diseases for a year.
Orlando’s Emily Kopp is one of my favorite hometown musicians, and her new video is a perfect example why.
She covers the Smokey Robinon classic, “Cruisin,” and really puts her own spin on the song, while retaining the heart and soul of the original.
Yesterday (June 13), House of Blues Orlando hosted an event called Local Brews Local Grooves that featured sampling of beers made in Florida along with live entertainment.
The event started at 4pm. It cost $5 to get in and then $3 a piece for a 3oz pour of beer. You could get a wristband for $15 that gave you 5 pours and a souvenier plastic cup. No real savings for buying 5 at a time, which I found odd, but I figured I’d buy the wristband to limit myself to 5 samples. We also got a booklet offering beer descriptions and a layout map of the breweries.
Orlando’s own Emily Kopp returns to Orlando on her current tour of the Southeast U.S. with a show at BackBooth on March 6.
Kopp is an engaging singer-songwriter whose sound marries bluesy soulful vocals with indie-pop melodies. She moved to Orlando to study at UCF, and also worked for a local music venue where she learned about the business side of the music. She honed her own sound in the meantime and soon was sharing the stage with artists like Marc Cohn, Brandi Carlisle, and Michelle Branch.
As we mentioned last month, Orlando musician Emily Kopp has a concert scheduled for tonight (8/1) at The Social. Tickets are still available at the door for $12.
But if for some reason you can’t make it and want to see why fans all over are falling in love with her music, she announced yesterday on Facebook that the show will be live streamed on the internet.
Simply log into ustream.tv/channel/emily-kopp-music and you can watch the show at home. She estimates streaming will start around 9:15pm (est).
