ABOUT EMMA G

Emma G has a vibrant energy that exudes from her music. Originally hailing from New Zealand, Emma G moved to DC to pursue her music in the capital of America. The vocal artist writes her own songs, and plays an acoustic guitar that embraces pop, rock and soul influences. She describes her sound as the lovechild of Pink and Adele: with Tracy Chapman as Godmother.

Finding her voice as she rediscovers her American heritage, New Zealand-born singer/songwriter Emma G is a combination of Adele, Pink, Tracy Chapman and Alanis Morrissette. Her edgy tones and gutsy lyrics hammer home her messages of love, vulnerability, empowerment and strength with a soul-pop/rock sound that is engaging, inspiring and appealing to a hugely diverse audience.

 

Unapologetically outspoken, flying her freak flag, and always smiling, Washingtonian Magazine dubbed Emma G as one of the “Best of DC”. One Love Massive describes her as “charismatic”, and ANR Factory describes her voice as "poignant and beautiful” with “astounding bravery to speak up” on issues that matter to her.

 

And where did this bravery come from? A long history of health issues, brain surgeries, battles with depression and suicide, drug addiction, and sexual assault, yet still finding the inner strength to come out the other side positively: singing her truth. “Things that happen to us don’t make us who we are, but we all need to overcome struggles. The trick is to overcome them together.” Says Emma G. “My hope is that my music will not only resonate with individual people, but also ignite those flames of love, resilience and community”.

 

Recent appearances have included the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, Fox5 TV, Dash Radio, and The Kennedy Center. With her career blossoming, and fame surely beckoning, who knows what is around the corner? “Well behaved women seldom make history, so here I am doing what I do best. The best adventures have unknown outcomes”. Keep up with Emma G on your favorite Social Media Platforms: @EmmaGmusic
