EM is a critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter, band leader and actress from London, UK. Based in Los Angeles, EM holds a residency at historic Harvelles' Blues Club in LA, with her captivating band EM & The Gems. A powerhouse performer, EM was originally a classical pianist, starting at age 4 and earning two degrees in classical piano as a child. She has performed at The Royal Festival Hall with renowned concert pianist Lang Lang, released an EP and full album with GRAMMY-nominated producer Bruce Witkin (Marilyn Manson, Johnny Depp), and headlined legendary venues such as The Viper Room and The Baked Potato.

 

EM fuses her varied background of classical music, jazz, rock and pop, with her skills as an actress.
