Sound Nook Sessions: Emma Abendroth Performs Genres from Rap to Indie

Sage Stevens, Reporter

Emma Abendroth (11) has been singing at local coffee shops for the past year. “I have been singing for as long as I can remember,” she says.

The Prospector was fortunate enough to host a sound nook session, in which she played covers of “Sorry” by Justin Bieber, “No Diggity” by Chet Faker,”Broadripple is Burning” by Margot and the Nuclear So and Sos, “Cough Syrup” by Young the Giant, and “Telegraph Ave” by Childish Gambino.

She describes her music as a mixture of modern pop, hip hop, and R&B. “My favorite music to cover is R&B and rap, but I also like alternative,” she said.

Abendroth currently sees her music as a hobby, but she would like to become professional in the future. “Being able to do what I’m passionate about for a living would be unreal, but I want music to continue to be something that I do because I love it, not because I need to make money,” she said.

She finds inspiration among artists such as Amy Winehouse, and she aspires to make music that aligns with her style.

You can find Abendroth playing at local coffeeshop, such as Jives, during open mic sessions.
