There’s life and there‚Äôs death… and in between it all there’s the party. Enter Emme Woods.

Soul, sass and sparks collide to create one of the most exciting female singers of our generation. Blending rock ‘n’ roll and blues influences with a hypnotic brood and incredible musical talent; Emme Woods has curated a truly bespoke 60s sound that bangs the drum for everything that’s great about the Scottish music scene right now. Simply put, Emme Woods is an original.

That said, Scotland does not define this twenty-three year old. Nor does it confine her. Packing up and touring Spain, causing intelligent chaos at gigs at The Great Escape in 2017 and playing self-promoted gigs in the city of Angels LA in recent months, Emme Woods is the true definition of a go-getter. Un-phased and never waiting on an opportunity to find her, she lets the music do the talking and all while her pride and joy dog Bubbles sits side of stage, or by a fur coat by the amps.
