Pete - who has worked with many great international names over the years - was immediately impressed with Emily when she was introduced to him a few years ago. She had not worked with professional musicians before but soon showed the studio band that she was more than capable, with an innate sense of rhythm and syncopation, perfect melodic control and first class harmonies.
Emily is providing backing vocals for Thunderclap on their current tour and also has her own featured spot. On stage she confidently draws the eye, and exudes an air of professional competence way beyond her years.
