The Wharf DC is proud to present international singer/songwriter Emma G on September 28th from 7pm - 9pm with special guest Silence Echoez on percussion!
Both Emma G and Silence Echoez are part of Capitol Groove Collective: a collaborative effort amongst musicians in the DMV (DC/Maryland/Virginia) area to elevate the arts through entertainment, empowerment and education.
ABOUT EMMA G:
Finding her voice as she rediscovers her American heritage from her home base in Washington DC, 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”.
