Singer/songwriter and Youth Empowerment Coach Emma G has been using the power of music to empower, uplift and motivate audiences worldwide her entire life.

Born with a rare neurological condition called hydrocephalus, Emma G has used music to recover from multiple traumas, including ten brain surgeries, by writing and singing her truth, sharing her experiences, and turning her lessons into blessings. With a unique style that marries the styles of pop, soulful ballads, and a gritty rock edge, Emma G’s style appeals to a hugely diverse audience worldwide.

A favorite musician of the Washington Post, Washingtonian Magazine and Thrive Global: the New Zealand-born singer/songwriter has expanded her mission of saving the world one song at a time to incorporate her history as an award-winning youth-worker, launching YES Youth Coaching. Youth Empowerment through Songwriting coaching is a completely new approach to youth work: combining Emma G’s history as a teacher, lecturer, YMCA youth coordinator and – of course – an award-winning musician.


Music is an incredibly effective tool for alchemy: helping audiences and teen songwriters alike overcome struggles, trauma, stress and overwhelm with songs of overcoming, resilience, self-love and stepping into one’s power.
