Hey! I'm a skilled vocalist with an impressive range who can sing any style with ease and passion. I won the Philadelphia Songwriters Project contest and performed at major festivals such as Firefly Music Festival in 2017. I specialize in a cappella, jazz, soul, and pop music and I'd love to collaborate with you on your project!
I have had the privilege to sing professionally for the last five years and I am eager to contribute session vocals, lyrics, music, or ukulele for your next project, whatever your needs may be. I recently completed four contracts with Celebrity Cruises, performing nightly for thousands of passengers on luxury cruises in Australia, New Zealand, and all over Europe. I released my first album in November of 2017 and have been performing locally all over Philadelphia and the East Coast. My credits include lead vocals on a children's music CD (called "First Notes" for Music Training Center, a music school in the suburbs of Philadelphia), and background vocals on several colleagues' records. My ear is outstanding, I learn vocal parts lightning fast, and I am extremely skilled when it comes to layering harmonies. I have a degree in Ethnomusicology from Columbia University, where I was trained in jazz, classical, and a cappella sining. I have a home recording set-up with a Shure SM7B but am also happy to travel for session work if the job requires it. I am also an accomplished and award-winning songwriter, available for lyric writing.

Emily did beautiful work on my song! I gave her lyrics and she wrote music and melody. She communicated very well and delivered on time. She was able to capture the heart of the song and showed great talent musically as a songwriter, instrumentalist and singer. I hope to work with her again some time!
Emily was such a great help in moving my song forward in the writing process. She has a beautiful voice and guitar playing; just hearing her play and sing the song helped get my inspiration moving. She shared what she liked about the tune, asked helpful questions and shared her impressions to focus what the song was about, and made several helpful suggestions on possible direction for a second verse. It was exactly what I needed to get unstuck. I had a full draft of the song done 2 days later.
Emily is outstanding! She is incredibly talented, professional and easy to work with - definitely recommend working with her!
