Emilie received her B.F.A. in music theater at the Boston Conservatory with an emphasis in dance and acting. She continued acting training through the Flea theater and the Looking Glass Theater. After having expanded to singing metal Emilie has Melissa Cross to thank for her technique. Before the pandemic, Emilie ran off to New Orleans to learn more about New Orleans jazz music while supporting herself by singing on Frenchman Street with a reggae band and singing and playing harmonica with a blues band. New Orleans opened up a whole new world of ballroom dance, and Emilie has a new love for Zouk. Emilie has also been taking percussion lessons with Tommy Campbell. Most recently, Emilie has had the opportunity to continue performing regularly with F*Bomb, a monthly tribute to rock music at Arlene’s Grocery in NYC. You can also find her recently produced music video “The House is Haunted.” Emilie is in the midst of writing and creating a one woman show with music. Emilie graced the zoom stage with Planet Connections, creating new characters known for their inability to leave the couch or magically turn into a seal. Emilie is in a Boston cover band as the lead singer, playing synth/keys and singing in an 80’s cover band, and can also be found singing jazz all over NYC with master guitarist Mark Whitfield. She is currently working as an actor on a film with award winning director/photographer/painter Bill Hayward. When Emilie is not playing with words or music, you can find her chatting up her family’s chickens on their horse farm in Michigan, sometimes in French…but usually in English.
