EM. A powerhouse performer, pianist, songwriter and theatrical artist. At 22, she holds a residency at historic Harvelles’ Blues Club in LA, has performed at The Royal Festival Hall with renowned concert pianist Lang Lang, recorded an EP and full album with GRAMMY-nominated producer Bruce Witkin (Marilyn Manson, Aerosmith), and headlined legendary venues such as The Viper Room and The Baked Potato, among numerous other achievements.
A classical pianist since the age of 4, EM earned two degrees in classical piano as a child. Venturing into songwriting and singing as she grew older, EM eventually moved from London to New York, and then to Los Angeles, where she developed EM & The Gems - an incredibly unique band whose sound is an eclectic mix of rock, jazz, pop, classical and theatre. Due to EM’s varied background and the expertise of her band members, including Melvin Brannon Jr. on bass, (Booker T. Jones), their sound and stage presence is something unseen before.
Imagine the innovative creativity of QUEEN, combined with the intensity of Kate Bush and theatricality of Lady Gaga and you may stumble somewhere among the energy that is EM.
EM & The Gems have headlined notable LA venues including The Mint, The Viper Room, Harvelles Blues Club and more. Last year , they were invited to open for members at Earth, Wind and Fire at the world famous Viper RoomMost recently, they have been offered a residency at Harvelles, and are releasing a 12 track album in 2020.
