Sometimes you just gotta take the bull by the horns, right? That's what Vicky Emerson did on her latest recording, Steady Heart. She's been growing as a songwriter and singer over the past several years, both in the Minnesota music scene and nationally, too. But on this new album, Emerson has taken on the responsibilities of arranging, production, mixing and promotion. The result is an excellent collection of songs that shows her growth as a songwriter and her confidence as a woman in the music industry.

Emerson brought her band into the studio to make music and to talk about the work behind Steady Heart.
