Emily Wolfe

Scary news today, as it seems that local singer-songwriter Emily Wolfe has been dealing with some severe health problems for the last week. In a letter posted to Emily's Facebook page, her manager passed along news that she's been in the hospital dealing with side effects from severe blood clots in her brain. According to the letter, the problems have been taken care of and Emily is now in recovery, but this still sounds like a scary situation. Her manager urges fans to post stories about what Emily's music has meant to them, and there's already been an outpouring of support.

Emily is scheduled to play this year's ACL Fest in October. Hopefully she is out of the woods, and we wish her a speedy recovery.
