This Thursday, Women In Pop Live will take over Sydney’s Oxford Art Factory, with Emalia set to take to the stage, supported by MARSHES. The event was launched to celebrate and empower women within the Australian music industry.
Hosted by Women In Pop’s music journalist Jett Tattersall, the covid safe event will serve as a platform to discuss the involvement of women in the music industry while also giving female acts the opportunity to perform again after the disruption of COVID-19.
“Through our magazine, podcast and website, Women In Pop has been dedicated to showcasing and championing the often ignored depth of female talent in the music industry,” said Women In Pop. “This series of monthly live events are the natural next step for us to support and promote women in music, from fresh new talent to established names, in a unique, intimate atmosphere at Oxford Art Factory. We are really excited about the artists who will be taking to the stage in the first shows and we can promise some really special performances.”
Since launching her career Emalia has gone from strength to strength, including supporting Jessica Mauboy as part of the YouTube Music Sessions, presented by the ARIA, as well as working with the talents of executive producer One Above (Kota Banks, Hilltop Hoods),Carmen Reece (Kanye West, Teyana Taylor) and LA based production duo AFTHRS (Sabrina Claudio, GRAACE). With her fusion of bass heavy R&B/pop, Emalia is set to stake her claim as one to watch in 2021.
Speaking of the performance, Emalia shares: "I’m thrilled to be doing my first headline show for Women In Pop, celebrating the incredible female talent we have here in Australia. I’ll be playing some unreleased tracks off my upcoming EP too for the very first time, I can’t wait to share them so it’ll be a special night for me,"
“Like many artists this last year I was feeling the frustration of not being able to perform and in a moment of serendipity Women in Pop were having similar conversations about lack of live opportunities for artists, so it seemed like an obvious choice for us to join forces and bring our ideas together,” said MARSHES.
