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.
