Em Possible has been singing since before she could talk, which is fitting because many of her family members were and are musicians. Growing up, her parents required her to play an instrument and/or be in choir.
Her love for singing always made her first choice choir, but in 4th grade she decided she wanted to play the piano. A couple of years later she gave that up to play the flute. Then, when she was in high school, Em picked up a guitar and she’s been playing it ever since.
Playing guitar started out as a hobby. She learned songs she felt draw to, that were lyrically relatable and whose melodies evoked emotion. Then she started writing her own songs.
Em played her first show on stage in April of 2013, and now, her musical journey has brought her to the TEDx stage.
Emily Geeves, professionally known as Em Possible, is a singer, songwriter, and musician who hails from Cincinnati, Ohio but has called Denver home for the last ten years. Her passion for music developed at a very young age thanks to her mother exposing her to a variety of genres/artists. Her love for music continued to grow over the years through her solo performances, as well as with the influence of her band members and the appearances they have made together.
Versatility is one of Em Possible’s strongest virtues. She can sing country, reggae, provide standout vocals on EDM production and keep a staccato rhythm with hip-hop lovers alike. She has always loved the instrumental charisma that comes with a live band, as well as the intimate singer/songwriter production with just her voice and guitar.
She writes all of her own lyrics, which are inspired by personal experiences. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
