Penning infectious pop melodies from a young age, Emma McGann grew up with the likes of Alanis Morissette & Imogen Heap on repeat. Small-town girl Emma has since molded those melodies into bold, colossal anthems of fearless, new-pop brilliance, earning recognition from fierce female forces in the industry including Kylie Minogue, Nancy Sinatra and Beth Hart.
Her journey has seen her evolve from touring independently across schools in the U.K. to gaining BBC R1 airplay & BBC Introducing features on air and at U.K. festivals, nominations for various awards in the U.S. including two Shorty Awards and an iHeartRadio Music Award. McGann has also amassed over 11 million views across her music livestreams to date.
Emma is passionate about interacting with her audience and involving them in all aspects of her music. She gave a TEDx Talk on how and why she does this through her YouNow livestreams, which have amassed a worldwide audience and have helped earn her positions in the iTunes Charts from the 200k+ community of fans she has lovingly grown on the platform.
The holder of a first class degree in Music Composition, Emma has taken part in Masterclasses at Abbey Road & Maida Vale Studios through the BBC and has achieved airplay on BBC Radio 1 with her single 'Cherry On Top'. Also a regular YouTuber, Emma was selected as a YouTube NextUp Winner (London) in 2017 catering to an audience of 30k+ subscribers with both music focused and personality driven content.
