ABOUT EMMA G:

Saving the world one song at a time, Washington DC-based Emma G is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and the front person of a Goddess-rock trio reminiscent of a combination of Pink, Natalie Merchant, Amy Winehouse, and Alanis Morrissette with a sprinkling of Sia and Alice in Chains for good measure.


Her edgy tones and gutsy lyrics hammer home messages of love, vulnerability, empowerment and strength with a progressive/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- and Independence Day Parades, PBS, and The Kennedy Center, Fox5 TV, CBC News, and The Daily Show, as well as venues such as LA's The Mint, New York City's Rockwood Music Hall, Washington DC's Arena Stage, and the documentary premiere of Academy-award nominated The Weight of Success in Palm Springs, California. Now - fresh off a nationwide New Zealand tour, and a recent 22-date US tour spanning from Washington DC to New York, Burlington, Vermont to Asheville, and North Carolina to Austin, Texas with her band of misfits Joey J Drums and DJ Reality Check, the trio are a force to be reckoned with.


With her career gaining moment, and fame surely beckoning, who knows what is around the corner? “I like to push the glass ceiling, live outside my comfort zone, and (hopefully) inspire others to do the same,” Emma G says with a laugh. “I’ve always been the person who sees the beauty in being truly, authentically yourself and celebrating your weirdness.”


Her music is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Music, Deezer and Spotify.
