The new name in New England Pop! She has a soulful voice and innocent emotion behind her performances. There is something eerily familiar for mature audiences to grab a hold of and young audiences to scream about! - Brian Joy, Cider Magazine

Indie Pop Rock singer-songwriter teen EMMARIE has been nominated for “Pop Act of the Year” by the prestigious New England Music Awards (NEMA).
EMMARIE is the youngest and only solo artist nominated for this award. Six New England based artists and bands were selected by a committee of music industry professionals recognizing emerging talent. EMMARIE would be so appreciative of your support via a vote. This is a time where 1 vote can make a difference. Voting is open on the NEMA website http://nemusicawards.com/ne-music-award-nomineesvote.
EMMARIE is an award winning singer-songwriter, having performed on stages across the nation from Boston's Hard Rock Cafe and The House of Blues, to the Apollo Theater in NYC and the BE IT showcase in California. She has had the honor of sharing the stage with the XFactor Tour, IM5, performed at the National Boys Scout Jamboree, Topsfield Fair, Live on Center Stage and for Mix 104.1 in Boston, just to mention a few.
What's really special about EMMARIE is that, in addition to writing original music, she plays a major role in the production process. She creates her own unique style by seamlessly fusing together her favorite features of Indie, Pop, Rock and more to create inspirational music with hooks that make you move, unforgettable beats, and lyrics with a passion for life. Her performances take you on a journey from Pop to Rock.
Her Music Teacher, Mrs. Laurie Collins, was the spark that ignited this journey by telling her parents she had something special. She started performing in Musical Theater, still a true love today. She began entering and winning vocal contests and with the support of family, friends and community made the leap into the music world.
2014 was an amazing year with the release of her Indie/Pop EP "Life is a Metaphor" and her "Live the Message" tour that garnered industry and audience attention. She is currently recording her new EP with all new original songs with a classic-meets-modern day rock vibe, and of course in true EMMARIE-style hints of other genre elements.
EMMARIE was honored to have been nominated this year by the prestigious New England Music Awards for Indie/Pop Act of the Year, an achievement received for two consecutive years.
She is an active anti-bullying advocate and supports events to raise awareness and invoke change. EMMARIE supports many charities including being a member of The New England Dream Team with Tunes for Tots, which supports children's charities.
