Harmony Hall is proud to present an evening of music with Singer/Songwriters Emilee Petersmark and Michael Riley
Emilee Petersmark has been a member of the beloved Grand Rapids band the Crane Wives for nearly a decade now, but parallel to that career she has worked as an acclaimed visual artist, producing original artwork as well as commissions for such musicians as the Accidentals, the Ragbirds, Melophobix, and Hannah Rose Graves. She also has an ever growing collection of songs that just didn’t fit the band, that felt too personal or small for the band’s ever growing sound. Those in attendance of her solo shows will get to hear these songs, unreleased anywhere as of yet, and get a peek into the soul of a fierce and restless heart. New Crane Wives album coming soon.
Michael Riley is perhaps the best male vocalist in Grand Rapids with a sparse but decades spanning catalog of songs. His 2009 self-titled EP is considered a classic GR indie record.
