Over the last couple of years, singer/songwriter Emma Yarosh has quickly carved out a reputation across Melbourne’s south-east for her effortlessly smooth and heartfelt renditions of modern favorites and unique interpretations of well-known classics.
Having discovered music through the eyes of artists such as George Benson and Ella Fitzgerald, Emma’s taste in music has grown to incorporate the likes of Eva Cassidy, Jeff Buckley, John Mayer and Stevie Wonder, amongst many more. It’s a diversity that has seamlessly translated into her playing, with elements of jazz, roots and folk all equally represented in performances rich with emotion and paired with a refreshing & accessible simplicity.
Since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (Contemporary Music) from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2014, Emma has performed in a number of different venues around Melbourne, for a variety of different clientele.
Areas covered: Melbourne, Mornington Peninsula, Yarra Valley, Dandenong Ranges, Ballarat, Geelong etc
In this time, Emma has also had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of Melbourne’s most acclaimed up and coming live acts. Having supported energetic street-performer duo Barely Standing at one of their local shows, Emma has gone on to be part of the inaugural Women’s Guitar Collective in Northcote, perform as part of the Ruby Gill Trio at the Paris Cat Jazz Club (Melbourne) and host & appear at the St Kilda showcase, Songs In The South.
With a catalogue of songs flexible enough to suit both the relaxed live music venue and the more upbeat wedding/private function crowd, Emma’s attention to detail and professionalism has lead to numerous satisfied clients and repeat bookings at local bayside venues such as Side Street Lounge (Mordialloc) and The Parlor Kitchen (Beaumaris).
Emma is also preparing to record and release her own original material in early 2018.
