Emma Volard is an artist hailing from the seaside town of Phillip Island. Inspired by the likes of Erykah Badu and FKA Twigs, her multi-dimensional sounds mirror elements of RnB, Neo-Soul and EDM to create a sensual and luscious atmosphere.
Her compositions have been described as “knotty intricate grooves that skip, between RnB’s dynamic vocals, and stop-start hip-hop rhythms” by Joshua Martin (Verve Magazine).
Emma has recently released her powerful new single ‘Femininity‘.
In a time where women are banding together to seek the strength and courage to speak out about their lived experiences of stigmatisation, harassment, hyper-sexualisation and degradation, Emma felt compelled to provide a voice for those who may be struggling to find their own.
‘Femininity’ is this voice – a hard-hitting joint that expresses the omnipotent force of the female gender. In this track, Emma has put together an all star line-up with an overwhelming percentage of female identifying artists.
