Emily's story is a remarkable one. Classically trained as a child on cello, piano, flute and recorder, she taught herself the guitar and started writing songs when she found herself stuck at home with a chronic illness called fibromyalgia pain syndrome.
A few years later, back on her feet and fed up with grey skies and concrete, she decided to give up her flat in London for a shack made from recycled wood, tin and potato sacks on a farm out in the Australian bush.
For four years she lived an eco-friendly, self-sufficient lifestyle in the shack with her Australian partner, financing her music by making and selling goats cheese on the farm.
Following the release of her critically acclaimed albums ‘Stranger Place’ and ‘Keep Walking’, Emily returned to the UK touring extensively with some of the world’s great singer-songwriters including American legend Don McLean, Eric Bibb, Paul Brady and Roddy Frame.
The title track of ‘Keep Walking’ was playlisted on BBC Radio 2 in the UK and on ABC Radio across Australia. Emily’s third album ‘Believer’, a ‘masterpiece’ according to Maverick Magazine, won rave reviews in the music press with 2 songs playlisted on BBC Radio 2.
