Em George is a singer-songwriter from Sydney. Em began to be interested in songwriting after discovering the sounds of Carole King, Lou Reed, The Beatles and Leonard Cohen.

Her first single, Murderers On The Inside was played on FBi radio, Triple J Unearthed and Home Brew Radio. The single was featured on blogs such as Mad Mackerel and Made Static. It was also optioned by HBO for use in film and television. This was followed by the track being remixed by L.A based producer Stephen Kozmeniuk (Madonna, Kayne West).

Her second single, Truth, received airplay on radio across the country such as FBi, Inner FM (Melbourne) and reached gold rotation on digital station, Traxx. It was also featured on Mood Media. The track was featured on several blogs such as Mistree Magazine (U.K) and the United States, drawing comparisons to Regina Spektor and Beth Orton.

Truth was featured in the soundtrack of Unplanned America season two which premiered on SBS 2 and is available on Netflix.

Em was featured in The Music Network alongside artists such as C.W Stoneking, after her third single Paper Hearts, spent two weeks in the AMRAP Metro and Regional charts reaching number three. It was featured on Triple J Unearthed, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Mood Media and was SYN Radio’s track of the week alongside Aerial Love by Daniel Johns (Silverchair). It was also released to radio in the United States, achieving airplay in New York, California and Texas.

In 2016, her song Blues Lady was a Semi Finalist in the International Songwriting Competition.

Her debut self-titled EP was released in mid 2016 with the first single The Grind currently holding over 300,000 plays on Spotify. The song was featured on the Spotify Viral charts and reached the top 20 in the Netherlands and number 28 in the UK.

I'm not totally won over by the song but I'm definitely intrigued. There's some really promising elements in here.
