Do you like listening to live music? Then you won’t want to miss Emerge Music
Singer songwriter, Nadia, founded EMB last summer. Since then, she has been producing a monthly showcase to promote herself, her music, and other developing artists in the area. “EMB was started as an avenue for me to get gigs while in a sense, paying it forward to anyone interested in going for a ride with me,” Nadia said.
Emily Earle is new to EMB and will open the showcase. Earle is from
Jah Fist, a Roots Reggae band formed in 2009, will follow Earle. The band from
Next on the list to perform is professional guitarist, Josh Beetler. “The basis of my show is myself, my acoustic guitar, and my computer. I can create big atmospheres, sometimes layers upon layers of music, so it sounds like a group is playing. I like to call it ambient sound texture,” said Beetler, who affectionately named his guitar, Blondie. Most of his acts are improvised, and he’s performed at a variety of venues including the Boston Music Festival and Harper’s Ferry. However, Beetler isn’t always alone under the spotlight. He plays guitar for Nadia and several other bands including the UMass Lowell Jazz Lab and Studio Orchestra (Big Band) Ensemble.
Just after eight o’clock, Nadia, who’s also hosting the event, will hit the stage to perform. Her catchy songs are a combination of pop and rock, with a little bit of soul. “I usually write about what I feel, what I see, and sometimes what I would want to change,” Nadia said.

Heaven Sent will wrap up the show with some acoustic, classic rock. The duo covers hits such as “Be My Baby,” “Everyday,” and “Hey There Delilah.” Band member, John, is grateful for the opportunity to take part in the showcase. “We’ve done open mics, but you only get one, two, or three songs. With EMB we get to play a full set.”
