ROCK’N THE RICHMOND, VIRGINIA MUSIC SCENE WITH CLASSIC BLUES METAL COVERS AND INSPIRED ORIGINALS.
Emma Garell grew up playing at School of Rock (SoR) in Richmond, Virginia. She always wanted to be a singer and had interest in Broadway until she found Black Sabbath, AC/DC and Led Zeppelin. They encouraged her to use abrasive power vocals while still being able to control a soft indie song.
She grew up listening to Alanis Morissette, Joan Jett, The Beatles, The Pretty Reckless, Johnny Cash, Nirvana, and Dolly Parton…with a sprinkle of Emenim and LOTS of Musicals. She has a broad appreciation for most music and enjoys the challenge of trying out something new…so feel free to toss her a challenge or two!
