Emjay at Settlers Tavern
Since embarking on a solo career in early 2018, Emjay Angeni has melted hearts and captured imaginations throughout Australasia with her relaxed brand of coastal roots/pop and affable nature both on and off stage.
Influenced by the likes of Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Donavon Frankenwrieter and Norah Jones; Emjay weaves a blend of her own original songs, interpretations of crowd favourites and spontaneous stories which blend to casually invite her audiences to relax, smile and engage with each other as well as her performance – and all with an ease you might feel if you were sat for a cup of tea in her Livingroom.
This point of difference has seen her become a sought-after act by many West Australian venues of note, including residencies playing six nights per week, for months on end at famous locations such as El Questro Station and Lake Argyle Resort. Emjay has appeared at Nukara, WAM Fest and Fluffstival music festivals as a solo artist, supported acts the likes of Saritah, Juzzie Smith, Karin Page and Little Quirks, and also performs as one half of folk duo “Moon & Honey” with her partner Dan White – who opened Good Day Sunshine Festival October 2020, performing with the likes of John Butler, Xavier Rudd, Eskimo Joe, and Vicki Thorne.
In addition to this Emjay appeared as a feature vocalist with Fluid Groove act “Blue Child Collective” who were awarded “Best Regional Act” at the 2019 West Australian Music Awards and were regulars on the festival and international touring circuit -recently playing NZ Spirit Fest, Bendigo Blues and Roots, Nannup Music Festival, Nukara Music Festival and having supported such acts as Xavier Rudd, Sticky Fingers and The Cat Empire.
