From the first note, Open Soul is an impassioned call to arms. Each song encourages growth, change, peace, and possibility. Emily Richards presents her vision for the world from a personal plane of experience and understanding. The stripped-down arrangements allow the depths of Richards' heart and soul to shine through.
Open Soul begins with Harmony - a beautiful track penned, sung, played and produced by Richards. True to its name,Harmony is filled with an array of harmonies that surround you with emotion and beauty.
Other favorite tracks are Renaissance, a song about the music within us all, the title track Open, exploring the vulnerabilities of love, and Goodbye Shadow, an intricate journey of the soul through its fears that features the beautiful cello work of Wolf Sebastian.
Emily Richards is a singer, songwriter, pianist, activist, and entrepreneur with twelve albums under her given name and over 3 million unique downloads of her songs.

Richards is co-founder and CEO of ArtisTech Media, the company that operates ccMixter.org and TuneTrack.net.
"My songs show the deepest and most personal parts of me," commented Richards. "I'm blessed to share much of these experiences with my fellow artists at ccMixter. They have buoyed me up and helped me develop every aspect of myself. I am grateful."
