Since graduating from high school, Emily, now known as her European name Emilia, has taken the Australian music scene by storm. Running her solo soul/jazz project ‘Miss Emilia’, she has since been the winner of the Bornstein Jazz Vocal Prize, the Future Leaders Jazz Awards and the Push Composition Prize.
Travelling to play international festivals including the Ubud Village Jazz Festival in Bali and Monash Prato Jazz Festival in Italy, Emilia has also played a trail of famed Australian music festivals such as the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, Stonnington Jazz Festival, Castlemaine Jazz Festival, Marysville Jazz Festival, Bello Winter Music Festival and FOJAM to name a few, and has performed with Australian house-hold names such as Kate Ceberano, Paul Grabowsky and opened for Kingswood.
She has also seen great success managing and fronting as ‘Sugar Mama’ from Australian band ‘The Mamas’, with organising and touring to sold-out audiences all across Australia, opening for the likes of San Cisco and Sex on Toast, and playing to crowds of thousands at Queenscliff Music Festival and Moomba.
During high-school, Emilia was a lead vocalist in the Victorian State Schools Spectacular, singing in an all star cast to thousands in HiSense Arena, broadcasted live to Channel 7. Through the State Schools Spectacular she performed for the British Royalty alongside NICA (National Institute of Circus Arts).
From the ages of 15 – 19 years old, Emilia was accepted into the competitive Juilliard Jazz Winter Music School run by the heads of music from the Juilliard School in NYC, as a student and later, vocal mentor.
With a passion for academia, Emilia was top of her class during her Bachelor of Music at Monash University, and has continued to teach music at her private bayside music school, Solfege House. Organising a string of music and arts events, mini-festivals and PR launches, Emilia also manages an Agency and PR company under the same name.
