About

Hi I’m Emma.
I am a singer, songwriter, violinist and live looping artist. I spend the majority of my time performing, writing songs, teaching music to young people and adults and running She Sings Out Loud workshops.

When I’m not creating or sharing music or helping others create, I can be found on my meditation cushion, reading dharma, dancing my ass-off to a west-African band, or in the woods or the water, connecting with our mother earth, preferably naked (unless of course it’s winter… brrr… Vermont…)

In 2018, I released my debut full length record Little World which is all about bearing witness to conflict as an avenue for healing and social change. This record was funded via Kickstarter and over 200 people contributed to make it possible. I am forever grateful to the community of people who made this happen!

Since then, I have been writing many new songs, sharing them via a series of intimate concerts in people’s homes and community spaces. For me, music is all about the cycles of offering and receiving that exists between performer and audiences and the healing and magic that is made possible when we gather together to witness each other and our world through song.

I started this Patreon page for two reasons:
Reason #1: I play house concerts because I want to opportunity to get to know every single person that comes to a live show. I like to think that my audience (you) are also my closest friends, my community, my comrades and cohorts on this path of evolving our consciousness, healing what needs to be healed and transforming our world. Patreon, or me, is a platform that allows us to deepen and build on these relationships, sharing our personal stories, our concerns and the art that inspires us, calms us, nurtures us, changes us.

Reason #2: I have a lot of new songs buzzing around in my head, yet I’m not always able to create time in my life to explore these ideas, turn them into finished songs, record them and share them. Being an independent full time working artist means I have a lot of freedom to create what I want, with no record label or manager telling me what to do, but it does mean I’m constantly juggling a variety of activists to make it all work, which currently looks like spending a lot of my time teaching (which I absolutely love) and spending a lot of time on the computer doing the “biz” side of music (like booking and promoting shows, which I love a lot less, but hey, it makes being with you live, possible…!)

What does your support make possible?
Your support here on Patreon allows me to create more time in my life for the creative side, balancing my teaching and performance schedule with the inward reflective moments required to gestate and birth these songs. Additionally, your offering helps me to raise the money to record professionally with my producer Colin McCaffrey at his studio here in the woods of Vermont as well as hire a team of all-star, heart-centered, super talented and hard-working local musicians and artists.

So what am I going to be doing with all this time that you’re making possible?

I will be recording demo versions of the new songs as they are created, in my home in Burlington Vermont, with the hopes of building towards a new studio album or recording single songs professionally.

In gratitude for your support, I will be giving you exclusive access to all things I create… ever and forever. This includes an inside view into my creative process from voice memo recordings of improvisations of song ideas, to full demo recordings to behind the scenes videos and glimpses into my journal of lyrics and contemplations that become the driving inspiration for my songs.

If my music inspires you, please join me here Patreon so we can share more music, more love, more stories and more connection. Because this, my friends is what I was born to do, and you make it all possible! And for this, for your desire to support the arts and to be part of my community, I am eternally grateful! Thank you for loving me. Thank you for letting me express my love to you and to the world, through these songs!


You, make my life extraordinary!

Blessings,
Emma
