Emma Miller grew up in the town of Elgin in the north east of Scotland, where she would return each summer to work as a whisky distillery guide between her studies at Glasgow University. Believing that her days of local talent shows and music making were behind her, at 23 Emma had every intention of heading into the world of single malts. However, it wasn’t until she’d finished her degree in French and Comparative Literature that she allowed herself one last foray into music. With the view to trying out a course in songwriting, in 2014 she moved to London, where a 9 month stay turned into 5 years and the beginning of her journey as an independent artist.
Emma’s songs skilfully straddle the worlds of contemporary singer-songwriter and folk-pop. Her rich vocals, boundless harmonies and mature songwriting have led to comparisons with artists such as The Staves, Kate Bush and Joni Mitchell. Since moving to London in 2014 and gaining a 1st class honours degree in Songwriting, the Scottish born songstress has garnered support from the likes of BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio Scotland, Amazing Radio and BBC Introducing, as well as successfully selling out her past headline shows as a solo act.
Emma self-released her debut EP at the end of 2020 to much critical acclaim, and this year proves to be no less fruitful with a string of singles set to anticipate her sophomore EP in 2022. Now based in Edinburgh, Emma is undertaking studies to become a therapist, looking after her dog Gracie, and continuing to write, create and perform her music around the U.K.
