Capturing the attention of some of Australia’s greatest performers, Emma Beau has been riding off the back off a string successful nationals tours, performing as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist on Kasey Chambers Bittersweet Tour, Shane Nicolson’s Hell Breaks loose tour, and Jon English’s Six Is Enough tour.
Feeling most at home on the road, Emma has immersed herself in song writing, dedicating herself to refining her craft and maturing as a solo artist whilst simultaneously touring with other acts as a musician in her own right. With her quirky personality, angelic voice, and multi-instrumental virtuosity, Emma sets the stage alive with her blend of acoustic folk and roots music.
“Emma Beau is a star that is about to shine a whole lot brighter. Her vocal, her music and her image have the quality that’s needed”
– John Bromell, former managing director of Warner/Chappell Music.
Emma Beau’s debut EP was successfully crowd funded in 2015. Requesting half of the $10, 000 recording costs, Emma’s Pozible campaign gained over $6000 and earned her a spot as a crowd funding ambassador for Pozible. The first single to be released, ‘Leave Your Light On’, has been played on high rotation on Triple J Unearthed, picked up by Coles and Nova Radio Australia wide as well as landing Emma a spot on Channel Ten’s ‘Toasted TV’.
The fan requested second single Samuel shows a softer side as noted by the AU Review:
“Emma has released ‘Samuel’ as the second single from her debut EP. The clip follows on from her success with her first single ‘Leave Your Light On’ which received high rotation on Triple J Unearthed and was heard blasting throughout Coles supermarkets Australia wide. Since successfully completing a crowd-funding campaign to finance her EP, fan input has been a highly valued resource for Emma during the promotion of her music. As such, a resounding demand among Emma Beau fans lead to the creation of the film clip for Samuel. Conceptually, the clip captures Emma in her most raw and open state, reminiscent of artists such as Sarah Blasko, Joni Mitchell, Stevie Nicks.”
