Actress/singer-songwriter Emily Kinney (The Walking Dead, Showtime’s Masters of Sex, ABC’s Ten Days In The Valley) has shared her latest single “Omaha Hotel,” the latest track to be lifted from the April 9th release of Kinney’s brand new full-length album titled The Supporting Character (pre-order). Written after attending the funeral of her uncle in her home state of Nebraska, “Omaha Hotel” is an examination of life and experiences Kinney’s had through the lens of being a busy actor.

“When I first moved to NYC, I didn’t have the money to go back to Nebraska often,” said Kinney. “And when I started booking big acting jobs, I didn’t have the time,” Kinney says. “I felt drawn to be an artist, and spend time in big cities and live a more transient type lifestyle – very different from the small-town farming communities in which I grew up. I don’t regret it, but I realize I do miss out on other things that are important.”
Staying busy this past year, Kinney took advantage of 2020’s endless days of social distancing and time at home to finish up one of her most personal albums to date. Produced by Benjamin Greenspan, The Supporting Character touches on themes of heartbreak, loss, family history, creativity and personal growth, and finds Kinney tackling difficult subjects with her trademark lyrical honesty.
