Emmaline, Waiting

IMG_0279

Born in Melbourne and currently living in Brisbane Australia, it was evident at a very early age that Emmaline was musically driven. Studying music/acting at the prestigious NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art) in Sydney Australia and graduating in 2005, as an adult Emmaline began to hone her craft. Influenced by names such as Etta James, Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, Sinatra, Roy Orbison, Kanye West, Portishead, and the Beatles, she began writing her first album as well as writing for other genres. She was proving herself not only as a vocal force and an artist, but also as an up and coming songwriter in her own right.

Emmaline began performing live covers and originals in local bars in Australia from age 16 in acoustic duos and bands, as well as performed in various roles in musical theatre productions. She’s always been more driven towards singing and writing her own material. “Getting lost in the music is the greatest feeling” she says, “There is no other job or past-time that I can do on this planet that constantly gives me goose bumps. If I could do another one that does, then I would be doing that.” 2013 has been a very productive year for the singer/songwriter. Funding her own single and videos, she is now being played on Radio in Australia, Hawaii, France, the UK, and other parts of the United States.

Emmaline was semi-finalist in two categories for 2015’s best song for International Songwriting Competition for the single “Running On Concrete.” In February 2015 she signed to the umbrella company to both Grand Hustle Records and No Genre labels under the supervision and direction of super managers B Rich and Greg Calloway and Grand Hustle Records President Doug Peterson. On April 24th, 2015 she released “Waiting,” the single and video featuring No Genre artist London Jae. To date Emmaline has co-written and featured on Grand Hustle artists 5 mics album and song credits include the Democratz, 5 mics, London Jae, Visto, JAQUEBEATZ, Javi, and Runway Richy.
