Toronto, ON – July 10th, 2017 – Ottawa singer-songwriter Emma Lamontagne has shared her debut single “I Don’t Sleep. “Listen HERE. Emma is set to perform at Ottawa’s RBC Bluesfest this week on Wednesday, July 12th at the Bluesville Stage.
Emma began turning heads in 2016 after winning RBC Bluesfest’s “She’s The One” competition, a Canada-wide talent search for emerging female artists. The “She’s The One” judges were captivated by Emma’s voice and her ability to deliver an emotive live performance. Emma’s renditions of “Sweater Weather” by The Neighbourhood and “Life of the Party” by Shawn Mendes earned her top honours, along with a chance to produce her own material.
Since winning the “She’s The One” contest, Emma has worked with some venerable names in Canadian songwriting, including the Fourth Floor Productions writing team, as well as Robyn Dell’Unto and Kevin O’Brien, to name a few, allowing her to hone her craft even further.
The 17-year-old singer-songwriter’s foray into music began with piano and classical vocal lessons when her father was stationed with the Canadian Military in Germany. Returning to Canada at age 14, with the guidance of a new music teacher, Emma reconnected with playing music and developed a keen ear for songwriting.
