Emma Dean



…quirky, intriguing and always exquisite

Award-winning singer songwriter

Heralded for her captivating vocals by the New York Post, Brisbane’s own Emma Dean made New York City’s off-Broadway circuit her domain. There, her award-winning cabaret adventures laid the foundations for an intimate new sound. Called home by sultry climes and birdsong, the maverick singer-songwriter has returned to her Brisbane stomping grounds with a head full of ideas, determined to reignite the city’s sense of musical community. In 2014, the Dean brains-trust — Emma and multi-instrumentalist brother Tony — founded a cheeky choir, Cheep Trill, followed by grassroots musicians’ network The Tiger Common. A consummate performer, Dean has toured the world, performing alongside Jesca Hoop and Kate Miller-Heidke, and in support of Macy Gray, Jinkx Monsoon, Katie Noonan, Amanda Palmer and The Dresden Dolls.
