Emma’s use of poetic songwriting offers her listeners an honest take on her dark past and a guiding light into who she will become on the other side. With a perspective far beyond her years and a fresh, edgy confidence, she speaks to her generation, by re-living stories of unattached attachment and ensuing experimentation. Her new album, I’m Not Your Girl, was inspired by big dreams and empty promises. A trained pianist, who went to Cawthra School of the Arts, fuses live piano with sparse production to highlight her voice and songwriting. Hiding her vulnerability in poetic lyricism, her vocals deliver a raw uncut truth that’s hard to swallow. Her’s is the story of love, loss and liberation - a young woman from Mississauga, Canada.
With a fusion of live piano and sparse production to allow her vocals to breathe, Emma says her family played a role in how her sound developed.
"I come from a family of seven so my house is never empty. I used to think I could never write/record at the piano with all the background noise from my siblings. I learned how to embrace it all. The background noise slowly turned into effects in my music. My family always lets me play, no matter the time of day. That's always played such a big part in the way I write - I feel as though I can be more free with my lyrics and melodies. My dad has a grand piano so that helped define my artistry as well”.
