I grew up in a household of musicians. My parents being professional musicians had me begin studio work at a young age as well as give me many opportunities to take lessons from seasoned artists in dance, voice, flute and piano. Now with the school years behind I started in missions and found myself constantly going back to my music roots. In December 2002 three days after I graduated from the School of Biblical Studies in Capetown, South Africa, I wrote, produced, and recorded my first CD "Playtime". It has 15 original tracks, with two songs from guest artists ranging from Zimbabwe, South Africa, Congo and Angola.
After helping to pioneer the first ever School of Worship April 2003 in West Africa by being a student/staff, I was able to train and teach in music and leadership.
Now back in the USA starting to get music out there and always writing new songs and poetry. Drop me a line sometime or check out my myspace page. www.myspace.com/emilyrskinner
Hope you enjoy the music~
