ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I\'m Just Like You is Emily Kurn\'s fourth full length album. Although she is based in Anchorage, Alaska, Emily has maintained a steady presence in the folk music world and on folk and roots charts. With an instantly recognizable voice and memorable songs, \"I\'m Just Like You\" is her most personal, stripped down album yet. A self produced album recorded in just three days, it was mixed by talented singer/songwriter Jonathan Byrd.

Her 2007 release, \"Things Change\", recorded at the Signature Sounds Studio with Mark Thayer (Chris Smither, Peter Mulvey), charted for 8 consecutive months on the Folk-DJ Chart, charting at #6 in July 2007. Her song, \"Light the Lamp\", which originally appeared on the 2007 Hudson Harding Holiday Sampler, charted at #2 in December, 2007.

With a host of honors including 2nd place in the Woody Guthrie Folk Festival Songwriting Contest (2007), performing as a Kerrville New Folk Finalist (2007), Honorable Mention in the International Songwriting Competition Americana Category (2008) and 2nd place in the Susquehana Music and Arts Fest Songwriter\'s Contest (2008), Emily Kurn delivers an honest, intimate, and warm performance in \"I\'m Just Like You.\"

yum yum yum....
... I woke up this morning and absolutely HAD to hear "Far Away." Between that one and "I'm just like you," the album pays for itself. I'm a performing songwriter, and probably learn two cover songs a year if that - but I've covered Emily's "I'm just like you" at more than a dozen shows - and had a Grammy winning songwriter friend tell me he thought it was a stunning piece of music.

Add that to Emily's strong personality on this album shining through the old cutesy galoshes brand, and you've got a winner. Proud to call her friend and colleague.

I'm Lucky to have found this
I stumbled across "I'm just like you" from T. Nile's song of the week, and within a couple hours I had ordered this album. Definitely the right choice. I've been listening to it non-stop since it arrived. I'm an instant fan.

Excellent
Much better song-writing and singing than Iris DeMent could ever dream of performing.
