EmJay / Bio

EmJay is an up-and coming artist from Rock Island, Illinois.
EmJay has been performing and recording for over
thirteen years. She recently earned her Associate of Arts
degree in Psychology and Music Theory with the goal of
becoming a music therapist. EmJay has played several
well-known venues, including the Quad Cities' famed
Redstone Room and the Iowa Women's Music Festival, and has grown a large fan base in the Quad Cities area. She will soon go on her first regional tour in the South west; passing through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and California.

the Quad Cities Phoenix Festival, where all the proceeds
go to women's shelters to benefit those who have been
domestically abused. One of the main focuses of this
festival is music and its healing properties. For more
