Emma + Simon
Emma + Simon have quickly carved out a reputation across Melbourne for effortlessly smooth and heartfelt renditions of modern classics and unique harmony-laden interpretations of well-known wedding favourites.
The couple met years ago when Simon decided to host an Open Mic Night in Emma’s hometown. By chance, the pair first crossed paths at a music store before bumping into each other hours later, guitars in hand at the venue.
Emma studied music at the Victorian College of the Arts and her influences incorporate include the likes of Amy Winehouse, Jeff Buckley and Stevie Wonder, captured in performances rich with emotion and refreshing simplicity. Simon’s love of music started with playing drums and playing along to old blues albums by Eric Clapton and Dire Straits. Years later, incorporating guitar gave him the chance to combine songs by artists like Fleetwood Mac, Crowded House and John Mayer with the same layered grooves and rhythmic playing he’d grown up on.
Their most memorable moments are definitely shared onstage, performing together for special events and intimate occasions.
