Toronto, ON (June 23, 2017) – Canadian songwriter Emma-Lee is pleased to announce the release of her 90s-infused summer anthem “Not Giving Up On You” – available at radio and digital retailers today. The follow-up to 2016’s soulful Top 20 pop hit “Worst Enemy” and her impassioned and bold rendition of the 1985 Whitney Houston classic “How Will I Know”, “Not Giving Up On You” gravitates towards Emma-Lee’s love of rich sounding pop music and is a feel-good track that evokes inspiration from some of the singer’s biggest musical influences growing up.  

Co-written with Karen Kosowski (Tyron, Michelle Treacy) and Todd Clark (Phillip Phillips, Shawn Hook), “Not Giving Up On You” is the lead single from Emma-Lee’s forthcoming third full-length studio album, due for release later this fall. Featuring a collection of songs written in Toronto, Los Angeles and Nashville and produced by Kosowski, the album is the culmination of a bout of self-doubt remedied by an outpouring of support.

“Now more than ever, the music business is an incredibly difficult industry in which to make a living and I was struggling,” says Emma-Lee. “It was only after many long conversations and at the urging of some very good friends and mentors that I decided to finish what I had started and I’m so happy I did! I’ve never felt more creatively alive than I do right now and I couldn’t imagine not making this album.”

Currently splitting her time between Nashville and Toronto, Emma-Lee continues to create her own music as well as write songs for other artists in both the pop and country genre, with such notable co-writes under her belt as Michelle Treacy’s “Colours”, and Madeline Merlo’s “Crush. Her own tracks have also garnered her some much-deserved attention, including “Worst Enemy” which was selected for Bell Media’s “Future Stars” program and Fresh Radio’s “Next Big Thing” feature, showcasing both her musicianship and technical prowess and most notably – a departure from her past musical fashion.
