Biography

2012: Emma Joleen is an Australian singer/songwriter based in Los Angeles, California.

Emma Joleen's song "Hello and Goodbye" reaches #1 on the Australian Internet Radio Music Station Charts (Australia, March 2010).

Emma Joleen discovered her passion for songwriting when she lost her voice working as a professional classical/operatic singer. Being given the choice of surgery or complete vocal rest, Emma Joleen chose the vocal rest and communicated via the written word for a whole year. During this time, the music continued to sing on the piano where Emma Joleen wrote a number of songs which have since won national and international accolades.

Fortunately, Emma Joleen has recovered vocally and continues to sing and write songs. Vocally, Emma Joleen is a bit of Tori Amos, a touch of Dido and a hint of Kate Bush, where musically she transitions between Regina Spektor, Evanescence and Sara Bareilles. Visually, Emma Joleen is compared to Delta Goodrem and Reese Witherspoon, while her stage presence resembles the energy of Elton John, Billy Joel and Lara Fabian.

Emma Joleen brings a haunting yet memorable quality to her melodies, that is capable of sending pleasurable shivers down your spine.
