Annalise Emerick in the round at Jack of the Wood on Nov. 5

Roots/country artist has taken the opposite trajectory of just about every other musician in the U.S.: She recently moved AWAY from Nashville. Now based in Boston, Emerick has “demonstrated her aptness to awaken reminiscence in the minds of her listeners, all with just a few simple words,” according to a press release. She’ll join Dulci Ellenberger and Kristen Englert-Lenz at Jack of the Wood in the round for the Tuesday night singer/songwriter series on Nov. 5. 7 p.m., donations encouraged.

More from a press release:

Since moving from Nashville to New England in late summer 2011, Emerick has continued to make more steadfast friends and fans, thanks to a whirlwind slate of live performances and the immediate success of her seven track collection, which debuted on the iTunes Singer/Songwriter chart at #9 its first day. The collection prompted an outpouring of attention from the national blog scene and a spotlight on CD Baby’s Music Discovery Podcast, which assured its listeners: “Fans of Ingrid Michaelson will feel right at home.”

In 2013 Emerick began her “Somewhere in Between” tour and continued raking in the awards: first prize in the 2013 New England Songwriting Competition and second place in the 2013 Solarfest singer/songwriter competition.
