Award winning singer-songwriter, pianist and guitarist Emma Lamontagne started music as a child with piano lessons, learning RCM classical repertoire and theory that laid the foundation for pursuits in more contemporary genres.
At the age of 16, Emma Lamontagne won the She’s the One competition at the 2016 RBC Ottawa Bluesfest. This lead to working with Cadence Music Group for a year when she released her debut single “I Don’t Sleep.” To date, the single has surpassed 400,000 streams on Spotify. It peaked at number 16 on the CBC Radio 2 Top 20 chart, and reached number 1 on CKDJ 107.9’s first Top 10 of 2018.
Emma then went on to perform at RBC Bluesfest, Grassroots Festival, and local performances with great success.
“Emma always seems so natural and easy-going in front of people that any audience will warm to her …she really has talent and I predict she’ll go far.”
Bob Nesbitt, Producer, Ottawa Grassroots Festival
Emma was announced as a finalist of the "Uk Songwriting Contest 2018" in the Adult Contemporary division with her original song "All for One."
Since July 2018, Emma has been in the studio with Rob Wells again, co-writing, and co-producing new tracks for her debut album. Her collaborations include Alan Frew (Glass Tiger), Robyn Dell’Unto (Fontana North), Myles Castello (Warner Music Group), Ezra Jordan, Max River (Shawn Mendes), and others.
At the end of June 2019, Emma will be releasing the first single off her debut album.
