The ascent of Australian born vocalist/songwriter Emma Hewitt began in 2007 when she crashed onto the international dance scene as co-writer and featured vocalist on the Chris Lake U.S Billboard #1 (Hot Dance Airplay) smash hit, Carry Me Away.
Carry Me Away was premiered by seminal tastemaker Pete Tong on BBC’s legendary Radio 1 and went on to become a dance floor classic worldwide spending over 50 weeks in the U.S Billboard Dance Airplay Chart where it knocked Britney Spears’ “Toxic” off the #1 position in December 2007. The track was a mainstream Top 10 hit in Spain and Norway and peaked at #2 on the UK Club Charts receiving massive support from the DJ elite including trance heavyweights Armin Van Buuren (DJ Mag World #1 DJ) and Tiesto who proclaimed Carry Me Away to be “THE song of the summer” in 2007.
A 2009 collaboration with Dutch producer Dash Berlin resulted in the single “Waiting” which earned Emma another #1 crown, this time on the Global Trance Charts as well as earning her an International Dance Music Award at the 2010 Winter Music Conference in Miami.
“Waiting” was a radio smash in Germany, Belgium and Mexico and was voted the #2 track of 2009 on Armin Van Buuren’s illustrious A State Of Trance Annual Countdown paving the way for dance giant Armada Music to sign the rights to Emma’s debut artist album.
In a further display of versatility, Emma’s acoustic entry in the 2010 International Songwriting Competition was crowned “Best Adult Contemporary” song from a field of over 15,000 being judged by Tom Waits, Kings of Leon, Robert Smith (The Cure) and Black Francis (The Pixies) amongst others which led to a worldwide publishing deal with Chrysalis Songs UK/Benelux.
An extensive touring schedule throughout 2010/11 has included sold out solo performances right across the globe with the most recent show of note being a career defining main stage performance at the Red Rocks amphitheatre in Colorado for the Global Dance Festival alongside artists such as Empire Of The Sun, LMFAO, Skrillex, Kid Cudi, and Nero.
With production now complete on a debut solo artist album, fans will soon be introduced to Emma’s versatility on a double sided disc featuring club mixes by some of the world’s most respected Trance, House and Electronic producers as well as darker electronic tinged pop tracks mixed in the U.K by the legendary Alan Moulder (Smashing Pumpkins, Nine Inch Nails, The Killers) and David Bascombe (Depeche Mode, Royksopp, Goldfrapp, Ladyhawke).
