Emily’s was a childhood of water and music. Life growing up on Groote Eylandt was one of travel, fishing and extended family. A mother telling her stories of dreams and dolphins that would one day become the seed of her music.

In almost the blink of an eye, Emily has become a seasoned performer who has taken her music around the country and abroad with shows and festival appearances in Sweden and France, Island Vibes, Woodford Folk Festival, Stylin ‘UP and NAIDOC events, performing alongside respected artists like Shellie Morris, Troy Cassar Daley and Impossible Odds. With a couple of Queensland Music Award nominations, successful single and scheduled EP release in 2016 and national tour in 2016, Emily will continue to speak loud and proud about issues close to her heart. This is an artist on an important journey that’s only just beginning.
