In the last two years since her last NZ tour “All Roads Lead to Home”, Raglan-born singer/songwriter Emma G has been climbing from strength to strength in the US of A.
From being dubbed Washingtonian Magazine’s “Best of DC” to playing the Kennedy Center, New York City’s “Rockwood Music Hall” and Washington DC’s Fourth of July parade, Emma G has just recently completed her first 23-date nationwide US tour with her Band of Misfits, and is bringing back her new developed and even more empowering sound home to the shores of Aotearoa in August.
“We released Superhero in September last year,” says Emma G. “but with the recent addition of my band: Joey J Drums and DJ Reality Check, my sound has evolved even further, and so much has kind of fallen into place with this new progressive electronic, soul, pop-rock sound we got going on!”
Emma G is not wrong. Her audience now covers over 16 states, and continues to grow as SUPERHERO starts making its way around the film festival circuit in the United States, and her newest, soon-to-be-released single Together We Rise is featured in a new documentary-style film “The Weight of Success”, also doing the film festival circuit, and is currently up for an academy award.
“I’m so excited about Together We Rise,” Emma G explains. “Not only does the song tie in, and follow up with the themes of Superhero – with messages of compassion, empowerment, and teamwork, but it’s the perfect song to come back to New Zealand with, as the woman who inspired the song [Dr Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator, who commissioned Emma G to write Together We Rise in 2018] has a strong connection to the land of the long white cloud.”
You can catch Emma G and her Band of Misfits at one of twelve shows scattered around New Zealand during the “Together We Rise New Zealand Tour”.
