Bio

Emma Rowe is a loud singer/songwriter from Darwin.

She has a unique talent for crafting quirky contemporary rock songs that combine lust, hope, frustration and joy in a surprisingly complicated but completely relatable style.

Her compositions ascend from measured, spacious moody rock to lofty pop melodies and catchy choruses. But Emma’s undeniable strength is her vocals. They give a sense of a bird in flight – falling and climbing with intricacies, grace and control. Her voice is an auditory joy and it’s incredibly distinctive from the crowd.

Growing up in tropical Darwin in the Northern Territory, Emma has a down-to-earth approachability when she performs live. Whether she is playing solo or with her band you can connect with Emma in earnest. She has no fear of being vulnerable and is always fully committed to her performance – it is refreshing and authentic.

Drawing influence from Missy Higgins, Regina Spektor, Florence and the Machine and PJ Harvey you can hear the sonic and lyrical maturity of this relatively young artist. And for a young artist Emma has an impressive catalogue of support slots including performing with Big Scary, Frank Turner, Jebediah and Christine Anu. She has also played at major events including the BASSINTHEGRASS Festival, Darwin Blues Festival, Royal Darwin and Adelaide Show and Carols By Candlelight Darwin.

Emma has just finished touring her latest, critically acclaimed single “LIONESS”. In 2016 she released her second EP “MRO” at the Adelaide Fringe Festival. The EP features the single “Earthflight”, for which the music video was a semi-finalist in the LA Music Video Awards. Her first EP “Emma Rowe & the Two Other Guys" was released in 2012.

When Emma isn’t playing music, she’s obsessing over Eurovision, MasterChef, and David Attenborough.
