Sat 06 Jul
Queensland Music Award winner, prolific songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Emily Wurramara, is a seasoned musician who has toured her sound nationally and abroad, performing alongside artists like Shellie Morris and Troy Cassar Daley.
Emily’s childhood was one of water and music. Growing up on Groote Eylandt, days were filled with travel, fishing and extended family, a mother telling stories of dreams and dolphins that would one day become the seeds of Emily’s music.
In almost the blink of an eye the young fresh faced artist who debuted her breakout EP Black Smoke in 2016, has matured into an experienced award winning Indigenous performer and a proud new mum with her own stories to pass down to her baby daughter.
2018 saw Emily release her debut album, Milyakburra, dedicated to both her daughter and her home; “Milyakburra is a very sacred and mystical island. Living in the busy city I wanted to create something that is a reminder to me of my home, and I hope that this album reaches out to the listeners and reminds them of their home.”
