The Chimes

Emily Coffey
Emily Coffey is a freshman commercial music major who loves the art museum, oat milk lattes and John Mayer.

Born in Bend, Oregon,  I grew up in the dry climate of central Oregon and then moved to Portland at age 13. Since moving there, I have also lived in Nepal for three months with my family, where I was exposed to the rich and vibrant culture just below the Himalayas. My home base is now in Newberg, Oregon on a retired Christmas tree farm. I am a big fan of outdoor adventure, as my dad was a whitewater rafting guide, and grew up mountain biking, hiking and camping. I love stargazing, going to symphonies and the art museum. 

I have had my nose in a book since five years old, and am very passionate about the English language and the power it has to shape people and their understanding of the world. I have also been writing music since nine years of age, and am currently writing and recording an EP. When I began my college experience, I intended to nurture this passion through my commercial music degree, but quickly realized through my experience with Torrey Honors and the Conservatory that I was most passionate about writing lyrics (read also: the English language). I am now transitioning into an English degree, where I will continue to pursue this passion and hopefully become an English teacher or content creator.
