Emma G’s Press Kit

Author, two-time TEDx Speaker, Singer/songwriter, and Empowerment Coach, Emma G uses the magic of music to empower, uplift, and motivate audiences worldwide.

Born with a rare neurological condition called hydrocephalus, Emma G has recovered from multiple traumas, including ten brain surgeries, by writing and singing her truth, sharing her experiences, and turning her lessons into blessings. 

Emma G’s music and story are helping audiences overcome struggles, trauma, stress to step up and into their own authentic power. In her book, My Life, My Songs, My Healing, Emma G shares her own personal story of how she has turned her trauma into tunes and struggles into songs to give her music an inspirational and authentic message. With a unique style that marries the techniques of pop, soulful ballads, and a gritty rock edge, Emma G appeals to a diverse audience of teens and parents to deliver teens a connection with themselves and parents a re-connection with their teens. 

As part of her 2023 project to release a song each month tied to a social justice or a mental health cause, Emma G partnered with Hard Rock Café to spread empowering messages to audiences including anti-bullying for August, drug and alcohol addiction for September, depression in October, and homeless youth in November. Her April song’s music video, “Barbed Wire,” focuses on abuse and sexual assault awareness and earned her a Silver Telly award in 2023.

In 2024, Emma G is continuing her music with a message mission with a US summer Youth Empowerment Tour in partnership with Hard Rock Café. The tour will encompass both YES youth workshops and performances opportunities for teenagers to join Emma G on Hard Rock Café stages covering over 15 states, and 21+ cities across the country.

“My goal is to save the world one song at a time – both through the music I compose, and the songs I help teenagers write. Through my music, I aim to motivate, spread love, and embrace authenticity: helping individuals rediscover their true selves.”

And she is doing just that through 1:1 and mother-daughter coaching, performances, group workshops, and guest speaking across the country.

Singled out by Fox, the Washington Post, and Thrive Global, the New Zealand-born singer/songwriter has expanded her mission of bringing light to the world one song at a time. As an award-winning influencer empowering youth and adults equally as a teacher, lecturer, and – of course – an award-winning musician, Emma G has created the perfect potion for potent and impactful change.
