“EM joins artists such as Lady Gaga and Tori Amos in giving a voice to those who need it most.” – Hard Rock Cafe
EM is a critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter from London, UK - a powerhouse performer, pianist, songwriter and theatrical artist. At 22, she holds a residency at historic Harvelles’ Blues Club in LA, has performed at The Royal Festival Hall with renowned concert pianist Lang Lang, recorded 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, among numerous other achievements.
A classical pianist since the age of 4, EM earned two degrees in classical piano as a child. Venturing into songwriting and singing as she grew older, EM moved to New York to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, where she graduated with a degree in Acting. Immediately moving to Los Angeles, she developed EM & The Gems - an unique band whose sound is an eclectic mix of rock, jazz, pop, classical and theatre. Due to EM’s varied background and the expertise of her band members, including Melvin Brannon Jr. on bass, (Booker T. Jones), their sound and stage presence is something unseen before.
Imagine the innovative creativity of QUEEN, combined with the intensity of Kate Bush and theatricality of Lady Gaga and you may stumble somewhere among the energy that is EM.
Named "a rising music star" by Arianna Huffington's Thrive Global, EM has recently worked with Elton John's engineer, Alex Robinson, 2Pac's Producer, Tommy "D" Daughtery, and earlier this year was invited to open for members of Earth, Wind and Fire at the world famous Viper Room in West Hollywood.
