Emily Grove Singing Carey
Grove's style has been described as blending the 1970s sounds of Carole King with the "orchestrated texture of The Band.” Her songs have been described as including elements of country and rock and roll blended with poetry.
Regarding musical influences, Grove says that her parents listened to Johnny Cash, watched the country music stations, and listened to Americana music. Her mother loved Paul Simon, and she was named Emily named after the song "For Emily Whenever I May Find Her." Her father enjoyed the Rolling Stones and The Beatles. She was born on Jerry Garcia's birthday, and this brought attention to the music of the Grateful Dead.
