Emily was born and raised in Coventry and read Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Warwick. After winning a BBC Performing Arts Fund bursary she went on to study Music Theatre at the Central School of Speech and Drama. She continues to be grateful to the BBC for all their help and support. Since graduating in 2008 she has travelled the world touring in productions and working at sea. Highlights for Emily have been touring Italy in Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost, entertaining a crowd of thousands in Don Giovanni: The Gay Don in Trafalgar Square for London Pride, and backing The Feeling and Elio Pace in concert.
Emily regularly tours the UK with Vintage Groups The Bombshell Belles and The D-Day Darlings, who are supported by the Royal British Legion and Dame Vera Lynn. She has also performed onboard the world's most famous ocean liners for Cunard; the illustrious Queen Elizabeth and Cunard's flagship the Queen Mary 2.
In May 2014 Emily launched her first studio album and one woman show entitled ‘Goin’ Back - Female Icons of the 1960s’.
The show is a glitzy nod to all the female music artists of the decade featuring the hits of Dusty Springfield, Cilla Black, Shirley Bassey, Tina Turner, Diana Ross and many more. The album, which features original arrangements of anthemic 1960s hits, is available on iTunes, Rdio, Amazon MP3 & Spotify and at the online Auburn Jam Studio shop.
Emily has most recently been paying tribute to the music of the Carpenters in a show entitled ‘Yesterday Once More’. Emily emulates Karen Carpenter’s unique vocal quality to celebrate the incredible catalogue of Carpenters hits
