Emma Bale is a singer-songwriter, plays the guitar, she's 16 years old and a new name to the Belgian Music Charts. Emma lives in Sint-Katelijne-Waver (near Mechelen), and goes to Hagelstein College. She took on dancing lessons from an early age and now shares the stage with her musical classmates. She enjoys and has discovered singing, like many people, in the shower and in the bedroom. But her first steps as a true singer before a big audience were with The Voice Kids, where she performed 'Somewhere only we know', a song by Keane. It was there that she met lots of people from the music industry including Hans Francken (producer, Musical Director) and Ingrid Mank (songwriter, vocal coach). Together they combine their talents in a music & singing Studio, called the PopVilla. This is where Emma knocked on the door asking Hans to try out and record a few songs such as "All I want", a Kodaline cover. Only 2 hours later, the recording was finished! Because Emma and Hans thought it sounded 'ok', they decided to upload the self-made video to YouTube and release the track on iTunes. Within one week, the single went straight to the top in iTunes at #1 and Emma's YouTube channel welcomed more than 300.000 visitors within that first week of release. This success didn't go unnoticed. Clouseau (a very popular band in Belgium) invites Emma as supporting act at their 4 concerts at the Antwerp Sportpaleis with a sold-out capacity of over 15.000 visitors every night. Emma Bale loves listening to Mumford & Sons, Kings of Leon, Keane, the Civil Wars, Imagine Dragons, Florence & the Machine, Sam Smith and George Ezra. Emma doesn't have a musical idol because she prefers listening to special songs that move her, as she says, especially when they are from unknown artists. She is working on her own debut EP right now... Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
