Emma Ogier “First Base”

Emerging singer and songwriter Emma Ogier is making her introduction with her debut single, “First Base,” out now on Cardinal Records.

Hailing from Houston, Texas, 19-year-old Emma Ogier is an artist quickly making a name for herself. Drawing inspiration from established artists like Lori McKenna, Phoebe Bridgers, and Joni Mitchell, Emma’s unique sound blends elements of country and indie pop, creating an evocative atmosphere that captures the hearts of her listeners. Her talent has not gone unnoticed by her musical heroes, as evidenced by Maggie Rogers recently joining her for multiple duets on TikTok.

Co-written and produced by Doug Schadt (Ashe, Maggie Rogers, Claire Rosinkranz), “First Base” showcases Emma’s standout vocals and introspective songwriting. Packed with heartfelt lyricism that openly explores anxiety, insecurity, and the fear of rejection, “First Base” speaks to the frustration of feeling stuck in a surface level relationship that’s not moving forward.

“I wrote ‘First Base’ to help me better understand and cope with feelings associated with being misunderstood by individuals,” she adds. “This song is about sticking around for someone who wouldn’t stick around for you.”

While “First Base” marks her first official streaming release, Emma is no stranger to the spotlight. She’s already performed shows in Nashville and Los Angeles, and she recently wrapped up a US tour supporting Michaela Slinger. As she continues to gain recognition and accolades, there’s no doubt that Emma Ogier is poised for a successful breakthrough this year.
