I am a maker of songs for those wearing rose-colored glasses, those who love life and happy endings.
For persons who prefer their artists tortured, I fear I am not your cup of vodka.
I started concentrating seriously on music when I turned seven and my piano teacher said, "Although Emma is a real sweet girl, her older brother has all the talent." Needless to say, I have been passionate about working on my music ever since.
My most prominent influence is Sting. There is no close second in influences because Sting is just my favorite. Always has been.
But my love for jazz greats- both performers and writers (Thelonious Monk, Ella Fitzgerald, Harry Connick, Jr., George Gershwin, Cole Porter) definitely creates the tone of music. I also love wonderful and unusual songwriters: George Michael, Randy Newman, Paul Simon, Emily Loizeau, etc.
In a kind review of my most recent album, the writer says, "Fun and sexy, Emma Wallace's catchy tunes will have you singing along with the refrain before you've even finished listening to them once. I love her intelligent humor and clever wording which make me listen carefully and then laugh out loud every time I hear her songs. I highly recommend this album, her older albums... to anyone who is a romantic at heart."
