Emily Gimble has been singing and playing on-stage since she was seven years old. Piano beckoned Emily early on-the Austin Music Awards named her ‘Best Keyboards’ of the city four times (2013, 2014, 2018, & 2019)-as did her voice, full of natural range and feeling. ‘A Case of the Gimbles,’ the 2005 album she recorded with her father and grandfather, showcased her vocals and launched Emily on a national family tour. With the Marshall Ford Band, Emily focused on western swing, and with Warren Hood and the Goods, she explored jazz, country, folk and pop. In 2014, Emily joined Asleep at the Wheel. With them, she played ‘Austin City Limits’ twice and recorded a duet with one of her idols, Merle Haggard. In 2017 she released ‘Certain Kinda,’ her debut solo album. She continues to tour on her own; with her family band, the Gimbles; and with artists like Amy Helm, Floyd Domino, and Hayes Carll. Photo by Ashleigh Amoroso.
