She was selected to be featured in Janis Siegel and Lauren Kinhan's monthly showcase, "Vocal Mania", where she performed alongside the two at the famous NYC Zinc Bar.

Emma has always been drawn to group singing, and immersed herself in the vocal jazz scene. She received three Downbeat awards for vocal jazz groups she was in at Berklee —Berklee's Advanced Vocal Jazz Choir and Point of Departure (Berklee's student-run vocal jazz group). Emma can be heard on Point of Departure's debut album, "In Time!"

Playing trumpet in her high school jazz band, Emma has always loved the sound of big band. She continued to play in numerous big bands through college and it was always a dream of hers to be the featured vocalist for a touring band, much like many of her idols. The summer of 2021 her dream was realized as she was featured as “Marion Hutton” of the Modernaires in the Dan Gabel and the Abletones Glenn Miller tour. Emma performed around the historic New England bandstands singing with her friends from college, The Beantones.. After those shows, Dan hired Emma solo to perform as the featured vocalist with the Dan Gabel and the Abletones Big Band.

In addition to performing, Emma is a songwriter and producer. Janis Siegel and Lauren Kinhan premiered the video for Emma's original song, "A Prayer", on their virtual show "Vocal Gumbo". That video and song can be found on Emma's YouTube channel.
