Join us as Mall of America® presents an ongoing series featuring local musicians representing a wide variety of musical genres, showcasing the breadth of creativity and talent in our communities! Each Thursday in April, a Minnesota musician will perform for our guests live in the Huntington® Bank Rotunda from 5-6 p.m. This week, the artist is Emmy Woods.

Emmy Woods (she/they) was born and raised in rural North Dakota and currently resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota. With hints of country, folk, and blues, Emmy’s songs showcase her knack for storytelling, her strengths in musical artistry, and an impressive vocal range + ability. When asked to summarize her music in three words, Dr. Kyle Smith replied, “Queer Farm Vibes.” While Emmy has been writing songs for over 20 years, her first collection of songs, tristia bella, as well as her albums The Manifold and Delirium were not released until 2020. Since then, she’s formed a band, Emmy Woods & The Red Pine Ramblers, and continues to gain momentum with her genre bending sound.
