Emily is a solo performing harpist, vocalist, violinist & electronic loop artist based in Launceston, Tasmania.
Emily specialises in creating contemporary arrangements, original compositions, improvisations and experimentation with percussive techniques, electronic effects and looping. She also enjoys playing a wide range of musical genres on the harp including classical, celtic, jazz & blues, harnessing the versatility of the instrument. Although it gives her great pleasure to play standard harp repertoire, she relishes any opportunity to depart from the type of music audiences expect to hear from a harp.
Emily has experience in numerous solo and collaborative performances, including performing at Dark Mofo (2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019), MONA FOMA (2019 & 2020), MOFO Sessions (2018 & 2019), Taste of Tasmania (2019, 2020), Beaker Street (2019 & 2020), ECHO Festival (2019), Junction Arts Festival (2016 , 2017 & 2019) and live radio broadcasts with the ABC. Emily has performed on numerous occasions with the Launceston Philharmonic Orchestra and attended the Australian Art Orchestra Creative Music Intensive 2019 as a MONA scholarship recipient.
Emily is also an Occupational Therapist and works as a Therapeutic Harpist, playing her small harp at the bedside for palliative patients in the last stages of their life.
