Doors 7pm/Show 8pm
Pay-What-You-Can

With her catchy and endearing story based pop songs, Emily Rockarts is starting to catch on in Toronto’s crowded music scene. After a successful east coast tour in promotion of her debut EP “Mapmaker”, Emily is writing a new batch of songs, with the focus on a national tour, and the release of a full length album in 2018.

“Mapmaker”, Emily Rockarts’ debut release from April of 2016, is a collection of songs that is as sweet and light hearted as it is thoughtful and full of longing. This is an album about discovery. Exploring the wide eyed optimism of moving to new cities, to the expansive depth of oceans, to the stratospheres of space.
