Emjay Angeni is a musician and visual artist based in the Margaret River Region of Western Australia.
Musically, in the time since launching her solo career in mid 2018, Emjay has melted hearts and captured imaginations throughout Australasia with her relaxed brand of coastal roots/pop and affable nature both on and off stage.
Influenced by the likes of Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Donavon Frankenwrieter and Norah Jones; she weaves a blend of her own original songs, interpretations of crowd favourites and spontaneous stories which blend to casually invite her audiences to relax, smile and engage with eachother as well as her performace – and all with an ease you might feel if you were sat for a cup of tea in her livingroom.
Emjay performs solo as "Emjay Angeni," with her partner Dan White as one half of folk duo "Moon & Honey," and appeared as a feature vocalist with Fluid Groove act "Blue Child Collective" who were awarded "Best Regional Act" at the 2019 West Australian Music Awards.
Through her work with these acts, Emjay has shared the stage with the likes of John Butler, Xavier Rudd, Eskimo Joe, Saritah and Juzzie Smith, and performed at Good Day Sunshine Festival, Nannup Music Festival, Bendigo Blues & Roots Festival, Nukara Music Festival, Fluffstival and as a part of a WAM regional showcase.
Artistically, Emjay works both in watercolour paints and digitally,
with a focus on the human form.
Her illustrations have seen her collaborate with the likes of Xavier Rudd (AUS), Larry Mitchell (USA), Blue Child Collective (AUS) and Michael Triscari (AUS) on their album artwork, as well as ongoing work with
Strings Attached: The West Australian Guitar Festival and The Augusta Community Resource Centre (Augusta Presents, Augusta Whalesong Festival, Augusta River Festival).
Currently, Emjay is performing six nights per week at the famed Kimberley venues El Questro and Lake Argyle Resort, meanwhile working on launching a surf apparel label, recording her much anticipated first album, scripting her first children's book and taking ongoing artistic commissions.
Emjay hopes to add animation to her basket of tricks in the near future and is excited at the creative prospects open to her in 2023.
