::: Emily Kinney :::
Emily Kinney is a little too old to be daydreaming in the back of a classroom, soaked in unrequited love for a guitar player in a pop punk band she used to watch on MTV, but on Oh, Jonathan, Kinney’s upcoming release, she just can’t seem to help herself. It’s been a couple years since Kinney’s last album, “This is War” and she’s been using the time both professionally, in acting and music, and personally to mature and explore. In acting, Kinney’s transitioned from her young role as Beth Greene on AMC’s hit tv show ‘The Walking Dead,’ where her music and singing were often featured, to more mature roles in shows like Masters of Sex, Ten Days in the Valley, and to her current gig as an emotional, tenacious mother of a young girl battling cancer in the upcoming Netflix series Messiah. In music and life, Kinney’s path to adulthood has been a little less straightforward. “After I got done touring with This is War, I was tired from traveling so much. There were a lot of opportunities coming off of The Walking Dead, and I started to feel a little like I was on a hamster wheel and not always making the best creative choices, I was just saying yes to whatever opportunities came my way. There was also a lot to learn about the music business. I often felt in the dark making decisions. I wanted transparency. Then, my little sister, who’s seven years younger than me got married, and I started to notice the gray in my Dad’s hair. Even though I had been traveling the world and doing all these things, I felt like I was the one who was stunted.” You can hear Emily’s plea for adulthood in one track on the album, “Popsicles.” “I knew I needed to see my family more. I knew I needed a change of direction with my music and a rest. Time was going by a little too fast.
Emily Kinney is an actor and songwriter best known for her role as Beth Greene on AMC's hit television series The Walking Dead. Kinney's musical talents have been featured on TV, in musical theater, and in her own releases. A Nebraska native, she studied theatre at Nebraska Wesleyan University and New York University, staying in NYC to pursue her acting and music career. Kinney worked in theatre off-broadway and regionally before landing a role on Broadway in the musical adaptation of Spring Awakening. In 2011 she released her debut EP, Blue Toothbrush, and started working on The Walking Dead where she would later become a series regular. Her singing has been prominently featured on the show, notably a moving cover of Tom Waits's "Hold On", and a haunting rendition of the traditional Scottish song "The Parting Glass" with cast-mate Lauren Cohan, the latter of which appears on The Walking Dead: AMC Original Soundtrack, Vol. 1. Kinney has also been seen in reoccurring roles and guest appearances on television series such as Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: SVU, The Good Wife, and The Big C.
In 2013, Kinney released her second EP Expired Love, which features seven original songs written by Kinney, with production by Caleb Shreve and Conrad Korsch (bassist, Rod Stewart), and mixes by Mikal Blue (Colbie Caillat, One Republic, Toad the Wet Sprocket). She maintains regular performances on both the east and west coast, and has recently been featured in Rolling Stone, Refinery29, People Online, and on Entertainment Weekly Sirius XM. On March 18th Kinney will re-release her Expired Love EP featuring two additional songs.
