Balsamo Collins Riley
Creating mesmerising, lyrically enchanting Americana, Emilia pours her heart and soul into her craft.
Having grown up with a wide variety of music genres, she takes inspiration from anywhere and everywhere. She kicked her performance career off as a Singer-Songwriter at age 11 and swiftly joined a Rock band. After returning briefly to her Singer-Songwriter career she formed a Blues Rock band and found her feet in Roots music. This led her to Americana, where she found a comfortable space and placed her unique twist on the ever shifting genre.
