Emily Johnson-Erday is an award-winning songwriter, an actor-musician, and composer. A Theater Kid raised in the old-time music community, she's excited to explore the intersection of American folk music and musical theater.
Emily holds a BFA in drama from UNC Greensboro, and is a composer in the BMI Musical Theater Writer's Workshop. She's proud to be the music director and resident banjo-pickin' elf of the nerdy immersive Off-Broadway show The Fantasy Tavern.
