In 2018, Emma was a featured soloist in The Commonwealth

"....Just sample her monster Broadway single
“Sincerely Fearful,” which is 50% “Wicked”
and 50% Tori Amos and 100% addictive, and you will find
an unavoidable sound worthy of the repeat button."
– The New York Post
Emma’s new show, Broken Romantics: A Unicorn’s
Quest For Love will be performed around Australia and in
Edinburgh Fringe in 2018.
