As the story goes, she came out singing. Emily's led her own bands as well as sung with numerous original and cover bands over the years in San Francisco, Austin, New York, and Los Angeles.
Currently, she is writing and recording songs with songwriter/guitarist Geoff Pearlman, bassist/producer Ted Russell Kamp and Grammy nominated songwriter Dan Navarro. In 2016, she released a record with bassist/producer Tim Lefebvre called Angelenos. The pair released the album "Domestic Blitz" in 2011.
Emily has done numerous sessions for other artists like Moby, Jimmy Lavalle of The Album Leaf, Will Pharaoh, Mary Segato, Sizzlax, as well as singing for projects with NBC, WB Interactive and Blue Man Group. You can hear much of her artistic and commercial singing work in the Music page.

"When in Rome..." is Emily's motto about living in Los Angeles and New York. She's found herself in front of the camera in cities where movies and TV like to be made. Why not do it?!?

Yes, Emily was once a Bond Girl for the Penguin Paperback edition of James Bond's Thunderball. While this edition is out of print, one can find it on eBay.
While she occasionally plays one on TV, Emily is actually a Rocker Mom in real life! She's documented a bit of the journey in her blog.
