Emmy Bachman now makes her home in Nashville, Tennessee.

Until earlier this year, Bachman, 20, made her home on the border of Hudson and Stow.

Some folks may recognize Bachman from a variety of local singing gigs during weddings and catering events.

The singer and writer is hoping her friends in the area will support her new extended play song, "Stranger" and her music video which was released in July.

Bachman will be back in the area Aug. 21 to 25 for the premier of "The Wind is Watching," a film for which she wrote an original song.

"I'm trying to get the word out," Bachman said. "Any support from my hometown would be awesome."

Bachman, who still has family and close friends in the area, said her music is pop/alternative and written about life.

"My music is very personal," Bachman said. "It's honest, and it's my story, mainly inspired by my hometown. I think people will be able to relate to it. I'm great with pop ballads and I also have some humorous songs."

Bachman likened her musical stylings to Lana Del Rey, Alanis Morissette and Adele.

According to Bachman, she has been singing since she could talk.

"I don't remember wanting to do anything else with my life," Bachman said. "I went to a performing arts school, Miller South, in Akron when I was young and got the opportunities to perform with The Bare Naked Ladies and be in the national Broadway show of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolored Dream Coat."

During the tour with Joseph, Bachman fell in love with the stage, she said.

"When I was 15, I started writing my own songs and participated in a national convention in Florida where I won an Overall Best Actor award and ended up meeting my current manager for music, Dean Cramer, who found and managed the band 10 Years," Bachman said.

The Wind is Watching is a science fiction drama about the second civil war," Bachman said.

The film follows a woman's struggles with loss and challenges during the war.

"I won't get to see the movie until the premier on Aug. 21, but I've read the screenplay, and I've talked to the director, Conrad Faraj, and it's going to be an awesome film," Bachman said. "I'm glad my music is a part of it."
