Saving the world one song at a time, Washington DC-based Emma G is a multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and the front person of a Goddess-rock trio reminiscent of a combination of Pink, Natalie Merchant, Amy Winehouse, and Alanis Morrissette with a sprinkling of Sia and Alice in Chains for good measure.

Thank you so much, Jim!
It was an absolute honor to perform for you, your wife and your family to celebrate your anniversary.
Thank you for including me, and stay safe!
Even tho the lady She sent to cover up for her had a short time with my request of song but she did good singing it to my fiancé, i was disappointed that she had to cancel on me 4 hours to my event.
Response from Emma G:
I'm so sorry to let you down like that, Fatimatu. I had a family emergency come up, which is a rare occurrence. I'm glad I could find a suitable replacement though
What to Expect

Armed with her guitar and/or piano, Emma G has been performing professionally for over 10 years, and caters her shows specifically to her audience.
She is available as both a solo performer, or as a duo with added percussion.
Each performance comes equipped with full sound. Lighting and a bubble machine available on request.

Finding her voice as she rediscovers her American heritage from her home base in Washington DC, New Zealand-born singer/songwriter Emma G is a combination of Pink, Sia, Natalie Merchant, and Alanis Morrissette. Her edgy tones and gutsy lyrics hammer home her messages of love, vulnerability, empowerment and strength with a soul-pop/rock sound that is engaging, inspiring and appealing to a hugely diverse audience.
Unapologetically outspoken, flying her freak flag, and always smiling, Washingtonian Magazine dubbed Emma G as one of the “Best of DC”. One Love Massive describes her as “charismatic”, and ANR Factory describes her voice as "poignant and beautiful” with “astounding bravery to speak up” on issues that matter to her.
And where did this bravery come from? A long history of health issues, brain surgeries, battles with depression and suicide, drug addiction, and sexual assault, yet still finding the inner strength to come out the other side positively: singing her truth. “Things that happen to us don’t make us who we are, but we all need to overcome struggles. The trick is to overcome them together.” Says Emma G. “My hope is that my music will not only resonate with individual people, but also ignite those flames of love, resilience and community”.
Recent appearances have included the National Cherry Blossom Festival Parade, Fox5 TV, PBS, and The Kennedy Center, and now - fresh off a 22-date US tour spanning from Washington DC to New York, Burlington, Vermont to Palm Springs, California; and Asheville, North Carolina to Austin, Texas with her band of misfits Joey J Drums and DJ Reality Check, the trio are a force to be reckoned with.
With her career blossoming, and fame surely beckoning, who knows what is around the corner? “I like to push the glass ceiling, be a little bit daring, and (hopefully) inspire others to do the same,” Emma G says with a laugh. “I’ve always been the person who sees the beauty in being truly, authentically yourself and celebrating your weirdness.”
Her music is available on iTunes, Amazon and Google Music, Spotify and SoundCloud.
