Southwest Virginia native Emily, aka Echo Blinger, is a classically-trained vocalist who found her voice in pop/rock shortly before moving to Harrisonburg in 2012. Soon thereafter, she co-founded and fronted local pop-metal band Chopsley, whom she wrote, recorded, and performed with until 2016. Since then, her focus has been primarily as a professional dancer with Charlottesville, VA-based Fire in the Belly Dance Company, but she is still a passionate, dedicated singer and belts it out whenever given the chance! With a varied background onstage as a musician, dancer, and actress, Echo is known for her versatility, theatricality, and high-powered dynamic and she brings a distinct, winning energy to the mic.
Word From Echo:
It is my goal to bring you vocals that excite and inspire, and to create music that makes you want to get up and dance!
