Few voices are as instantly recognizable as that of Australian born songstress, Emma Hewitt.
Hewitts haunting melodies, yearning lyrics and distinctive style have earned her a legion of passionate fans around the world as she continues to write and release music with some of the worlds most respected names in electronic dance music.
The journey began back in the Australian town of Geelong, Victoria where Emma would perform acoustically around the region through her teenage years. Music was a form of escape for me and not something I ever consciously set out to follow as a career path. I was always inspired to ask questions; of myself as well as others and I guess over time those questions just sort of grew wings and turned into songs.
Those songs led to an early record deal with Sony Music for her project Missing Hours. The relationship was brief, but provided Emma with an insight into the music industry setting the stage for things to come. I was never very comfortable that first time around I felt as though I was trying to figure out what I wanted to say and who I wanted to be with a lot of different people watching on through a microscope. The over analyzing didnt make sense to me as I just wanted to write songs that might mean something to people and all of a sudden these things Id never really considered like marketing strategies and budgets became more important to the people around me. I was out walking with my brother one day and I had this epiphany and just said, screw it I want to burn this all down and dream it back to life the way I had imagined it. I wanted to give the songs the respect I felt they deserved.
And dream it back to life she did. Emmas very first EDM collaboration with UK heavyweight Chris Lake yielded the worldwide smash Carry Me Away knocking Britney Spears out of the #1 position on the U.S Billboard Chart (Hot Dance Airplay) going on to spend over 50 weeks in the Top 100.
From there, Emma teamed up with German icons Cosmic Gate for the classic anthem Not Enough Time and Dutch superstar DJ Dash Berlin for the trance hit, Waiting. Waiting firmly cemented Emma Hewitts reputation as a serious international talent earning Hewitt many accolades including a #1 on the Global Trance Charts, #2 on the annual A State Of Trance Annual Countdown and an International Dance Music Award (Best Euro/HiNRG Track) at the 2010 Winter Music Conference in Miami.
A string of #1 Beatport releases followed throughout a particularly fertile period in 2010 and with a wealth on new material, a new record label in Armada Music and a desire to push the creative envelope, she undertook the extraordinary measure of producing her debut artist release as a double album project. My only real goal with the album was to be faithful to the songs regardless of style or genre I guess with the double sided concept, I just wanted to give as much music as I could back to whoever wanted or needed to hear it. I also wanted this album to show some of the different sides to my personality.
Produced by Lee Groves (Goldfrapp, Marilyn Manson, Depeche Mode), Burn The Sky Down was an instant favorite with fans around the world debuting in the Top 10 on the iTunes dance charts in seven different countries fusing electronic beats with ambient soundscapes, and live instrumentation with Hewitts inimitable vocal style at the fore.
The remix album featured some of the worlds most respected remix artists including Armin van Buuren, Grammy nominated Morgan Page and Cosmic Gate and a remix by young Danish virtuoso, Mikkas, provided Emmas longest ever run at #1 on the Beatport Trance Chart spending over seven weeks straight in the #1 position.
A live acoustic EP titled Starting Fires followed suit and charted in over 20 countries in the iTunes Top 20 dance charts further highlighting Hewitts versatility.
2013 yielded the collaboration Forever Is Ours with Grammy Nominated artist, Armin van Buuren as well as an extensive touring schedule that has included sold out solo performances right across the globe in over 50 countries as well as appearances on the major festival circuit around the world where Hewitt is often known to leave the stage, microphone in hand, to join the revelers in the arena below.
2014 shows no sign of slowing the pace with Emma currently back in the studio working on further solo singles and collaborations for release over the coming year.
Securing a charging position as one of electronic musics esteemed DJs and producers, Ashley Wallbridge is riding his own fresh wave in and out of the studio. From the United Kingdoms Stoke On Trent, he has amplified a career from the undying passion of the crowds in front of him, the enthusiasts tuning in and the fellow talent that surrounds him.
The studio is a content haven of musical liberty for Ashley; reeling in the remix requests from Gareth Emery to Armin Van Buuren, while trapping his own originals at their finest. With a recent signing to Aviciis label Le7els, the electronic industry saw the surge of Crush highlight the Beatport Progressive Chart top ten mid year of 2013. In the meantime, his late album Inner Me reached #5 on the iTunes USA charts, #9 in Canada and #12 for the UK. Collaborating with Gareth Emery on Mansion also saw the artist hit Armin Van Buurens Universal Religion compilation.
Migrating the tunes to the crowds, this electronic exemplar clutches music in its prime, showcasing a commode of musical wealth from Europe to the USA.

Taking it up a score at Creamfields Australia, Global Gathering in the UK and Sunset Music, the festival crowds arent ever neglected with the Wallbridge brand igniting demand everywhere.
