Emily was born, and grew up in Cheshire. For ten years she was a Chester Cathedral Chorister (2000-2010) and Head Chorister for the last four, under the direction of Philip Rushforth. In 2002 she was awarded the Daphne Herbert Choral Scholarship for her contribution to singing at Abbey Gate College by the Head of Music, Stewart Smith. In Summer 2012 she was awarded a place on the prestigious Samling Academy, working with professionals such as Paul Farrington, a clinical vocal consultant; and Caroline Dodle, vocal coach.

Emily received an unconditional offer to Durham University and has now graduated with a BA (Hons) Dunelm Degree in Music, gaining a First in both her Final Recital and Contemporary Performance Recital. In her time here she sang with the Durham University Chamber Choir, Cathedral Consort Choir, Castle Chapel Choir, Renaissance and The Carice Singers.

Emily's professional choral performances include Inspirations: Ligeti & Ravel (Feb 2017), and Stravinsky: Myths and Rituals (Sept 2016) both at The Royal Festival Hall, London, & Stravinsky: Faith (June 2016), St John Smith's Square, all with the Philharmonia Choir and Orchestra under Esa-Pekka Salonen (Choral Director Aidan Oliver) and broadcast on BBC Radio 3. Emily is a regular deputy singer at churches across London namely, Spanish Place, Marylebone, St Maragret's Church, Westminster and Carmelite Prioy, Kensington.

Emily's opera performances include Fiordiligi in extracts from Così fan Tutte, Mozart, at Durham University's ‘Last Night of the Proms.’ Second Lady in Mozart's Magic Flute; a highly seductive, yet comic role which she has thoroughly enjoyed. First Woman, in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas at the Sage in Newcastle in 2011. Her debut lead role as Dido in Dido and Aeneas with Durham Opera Ensemble.

Emily is now embarking on the beginning of her freelance musical career and has just been given the part of Countess in a new work "The Marriage of Kim K" which will be touring the UK June- September. Emily has just finished her second season at Thursford Christmas Spectacular. Last summer (2016) she toured with the National Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company in the chorus of Pirates of Penzance, Yeomen of the Guard, The Mikado and The Sorcerer.

In September Emily will further her vocal studies with the Graduate Diploma Course at the Royal College of Music.
