With a no. 1 album and recognition from Q Magazine and Glamour, Emma Ballantine is rapidly attracting acclaim for powerful songwriting and a 'shapeshifting vocal gift' (Gigslutz). Her music is inspired by artists including Suzanne Vega, Tori Amos and Kate Bush, weaving together folk and contemporary influences to create her distinctive, storytelling style.
A finalist in the UK Unsigned Songwriter of the Year competition, her music has been played by BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music and BBC Introducing, and she has been described by Resonance FM as 'a unique voice among modern songwriters'.
