Emma McGrath first gained attention when she won the inaugural PRS Lynsey de Paul prize for songwriting at the age of 15.
The Silent Minds EP followed in 2018 and lead single 'Love You Better’, co-written with Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse) featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday US playlist and has achieved over 2 million streams to date. Follow up EP, ‘Keep Your Eyes Open’ (‘Silent Minds Pt. 2’) was released in early 2020 to similar acclaim, achieving 13 Spotify New Music Friday playlists around the world. Lead single ‘Fall With You’ received ‘Best New Pop’ accreditation from BBC Radio 1, and Emma went on to support Melanie Martinez on her UK tour.
Emma takes musical inspiration from the likes of Tracy Chapman, Tove Lo, Missy Higgins, Banks and Brandi Carlisle, reflecting both her love of song writing and great pop music. Her songwriting style effortlessly combines emotive melodies with autobiographical lyrics displaying an immense maturity and accomplishment that recently saw her appointed to the Ivor Novello Academy Youth Council. Emma uses her songwriting as a means of expression, drawing upon her experiences growing up and going to school in the UK during the 2010s, a time in her life she admits she found difficult. Identifying as gay when her friends were spread across a broad LGBT+ spectrum made for a confusing adolescence. With a resounding maturity and astute understanding of the world and modern life, it’s clear that Emma McGrath has much, much more to say.
