biographical info

If it’s true that our personalities are set by age six, then why do so many of us wander for decades before coming back to our original selves? That’s the question Toronto singer and songwriter Emma-Lee asks in her latest single, “Worst Enemy” - an anthem for anyone who’s ever looked squarely in the mirror and finally admitted that the greatest obstacle to reaching their dreams was staring right back at them.

Produced by Karen Kosowski, with whom the singer had previously worked on her 2012 critically acclaimed release “Backseat Heroine”, and co-written by highly praised Canadian artist Royal Wood, “Worst Enemy” is a departure from Emma-Lee’s past musical fashion, and gravitates back to her very first love of rich sounding pop music. In it, she sets out to introduce the listener to the girl from the 90s who wore out TLC’s “CrazySexyCool” album and loaded her Discman with Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson and Lauryn Hill; to the girl who didn’t care who heard her belting out the hits at the top of her lungs.

Following the 2008 independent release of her first album “Never Just A Dream”, Emma-Lee garnered a ton of attention, including glowing reviews from the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail - the latter naming it their “disc of the week”. Her 2012 follow-up, the aforementioned “Backseat Heroine” was released through eOne Music Canada, and first single “Not Coming By” yielded significant traction at CBC Radio 2, with the video for second single “Figure It Out” added into heavy rotation on MuchMusic. The album was also named “Best Adult Contemporary Album” at the 12th annual Independent Music Awards.

With 5 national tours and many high profile international showcases under her belt (SXSW in Austin, TX and MIDEM in Cannes, France); Emma-Lee’s extensive touring continues to carve her place in the Canadian music scene and abroad. Named “Best Female Vocalist” in NOW Magazine’s Best of Toronto reader’s poll for two years in a row, Emma-Lee sings with a vulnerable nuance and power that leaves a mark on the hearts of all who hear her.
