Through her schooling years Emma found joy in classical violin and piano, going on to form her first high school band Halo, and performing her first gig at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre of all places as part of Brisbane’s annual Rock Eisteddfod, leaving a grandiose and exciting first impression of performance on the young musician.
With a sparked intrigue, Emma delved deeper into her music, personally experimenting with singing and song writing to expand her musical boundaries. At 18, Emma found herself with a choice: choose between her trustworthy violin, her instrument of choice since age 6, or her newly found thrill in singing and song writing as she entered university at The Queensland Conservatorium of Music.
Emma’s latest endeavour, Emma and the Hungry Truth, epitomises her range and depth of sentiment, as she comes face-to-face to confront the fears and demons that ran rampant through her mind in this reactionary response to an intensely emotional year in New York. Featuring five other musicians and incorporating vibrant instrumentals, ranging from basic keyboard melodies to surprising Theremin induced oscillations, Emma and the Hungry Truth prove a breath of fresh air in Emma’s reinvigorated career, sending chills down your spine to feel every feeling right alongside Emma’s stirring vocals.

Working together with The Hungry Truth to fearlessly achieve a magical juxtaposition, Emma’s piercingly beautiful voice collides with the band’s intricate rhythms, rich harmonies, and distinctive instrumentation.
