This incredibly talented artist/songwriter/dancer powerhouse, has exploded onto the music scene creating a storm of interest. With her urban-flavored pop sensibilities and raw authenticity she is quickly building a global following.
In late 2016, Emily released her debut single, SUGARCOATED, a collaboration with talented Australian producer Alius. Sugarcoated, with a blaze of bold, vibrant sounds and exotic pop/electro blends reflected the confidence of an artist truly on the rise. Supported with a remix package, the song was played in clubs worldwide and received airplay in the US reaching #40 on the Mediabase Activator Chart.
Emily's second single, BOOM, produced by Grammy Winners, the Jackie Boyz was released in late August 2017. With Emily's unique tone, a hook that hangs around long after listening and a remix package led by 2016 Grammy Winner Dave Aude, Boom peaked at #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart and established a worldwide fan base for its young artist.
Her third single, the anthemic WALK IN SILENCE, continued the buzz in industry and media after being debuted at the famous BB King's in New York at the prestigious Pre-Grammy Soiree. Armed with an outstanding remix package, Walk In Silence headed straight to the Billboard Dance Chart peaking at #13.
Emily’s next single, SUMMER ON LOCK, produced by Grammy Winner, Damon Elliott and supported with an international remix package, was released mid-2018 and peaked at #9 on the Billboard Dance Chart. The song “jumped the pond” and rose to #2 on the UK Commercial Pop Chart proving its international appeal. With a hook you simply can't forget, a cool beat and dance moves to match, it was a red-hot summer hit and was the lead song for her debut tour, The Summer On Lock Tour which saw Emily performing in 10 cities across North America for the summer.
Based on the success of her debut tour, Emily was invited to join the High School Nation Fall Festival Tour that saw her perform 25 shows to more than 40,000 teenagers across North America over 5 weeks in October/November and growing her Instagram following by a massive 15,000 teens.
Rounding out a very successful year came the news that her music has had over 3 million in-store plays and her first Christmas single, Jingle Jingle was featured in the movie Homegrown Christmas (Hallmark).
2019 has seen a flurry of activity with studio sessions, new music and video shoots ready to satisfy her fans this year.
Emily’s first release for 2019 was SO BAD, a contemporary pop number produced by Niko the Kid. So Bad, with its contemporary, mature sound was released with a remix by DJ Hector Fonseca which has seen the song playing at international festivals.
Bossed Up, complete with Emily’s urban-flavored pop sensibilities and raw authenticity, is set for release in October and contains 5 outstanding tracks, each so strong that it's hard to pick a favorite. It’s a bold statement confirming Emily’s intention to stick around and show up. A true Girl Boss, Emily held a clear vision for her debut EP and was the driving force behind not just the music but also the creative development of the EP.
Bossed Up continues the common theme of empowerment found in Emily’s previous single releases, celebrating individual power in a way that encourages her fans to embrace her as one of their own. Writing openly and honestly about young love and personal choices, Emily’s music has become a soundtrack by which to stand up and own your choices.
Track #1, KEEPER, produced by Def Starz (Devvon Terrell, Montana of 300) and co-written/co-produced by Lynniah Herron (Star, American Idol), is a sonic contrast to Emily’s previous dance-pop tracks. The single has an urban vibe with pop undertones, flirtatious and mature - showing a new side to the versatile musician who is just 20 years old.
NOT UP TO ME, Track #2 produced by Gekko (Hit Boy, Mozzy, Iamsu!) and co-written/co-produced by Lynniah Herron, with Emily's unique, charismatic tone, is melodic and catchy as it tells a story of not being taken for granted and speaking your power.
Perfect as a soundtrack for standing up for yourself!
Track #3 from the EP, COME THRU, produced by Composer (Trey Songz, Kehlani, Christina Aguilera) and co-written/co-produced by Lynniah Herron, intertwines Emily’s playful, infectious pop spirit with her youthful confidence in a fun, sexy, feelgood song.
HERE, track #4, Bossed Up, produced by Mantra (Future, Rihanna, Bad Bunny, Stefflon Don) and co-written/co-produced by Lynniah Herron, is a slice of mid-tempo pop bliss with an instantly infectious hook, a strong danceable bass line and a feel good, let loose vibe.
GIRL BOSS, the final track from the EP, Bossed Up, produced by Solomon Rodney (Noisey Neighborz) and co-written/coproduced by Lynniah Herron, is an anthem for all the strong badass women out there. This song reminds us that empowered women really do empower women!
Currently back on the road with the High School Nation Festival Tour, Emily’s set contains songs from her upcoming EP that have been a highlight of the festival and hugely popular with its teen audience.
On a personal note, Emily has been singing and dancing from the time she could talk and walk, performing in her first concert at just four years old and she hasn’t stopped since. While her spare time was filled with dance, vocal and drama classes along with competitions and performances, it was acting which first presented itself professionally and Emily made a name for herself starring in various film and television projects. Emily spent her teenage years attending a Performing Arts School in Australia, honing her triple threat skills in Los Angeles and completing a full-time professional college-level dance program. She now shares her time between the family home in Sydney and her new home in Los Angeles.
