"Emer is a beautiful singer with a great sense of melody and a compelling way with words." Ron Sexsmith
Emer has been performing and writing songs for over 20 years, fronting countless bands she has also featured as a soloist at festivals, special events and played at restaurants, hotels, bars and clubs in the GTA. She released her first professional EP in 2007 and is currently working on a full album of original songs. Her unique style has been compared to Sarah Harmer, Regina Spektor and KT Tunstall.
Emer began studying classical piano at the Royal Conservatory at age 7. She also took private voice lessons from an early age and gradually developed a keen interest in jazz and popular music. This eventually led her to enroll in the commercial jazz program at Humber College where she completed a Bachelor of Music degree, majoring in voice & performance. She graduated from Humber with honors in 2007 and went on to pursue a degree in music education at York University, graduating in 2011.
Now a seasoned performer and teacher, Emer is in great demand as a vocal coach, having established her own music school in Barrie, Ontario.
