After Emily Grogan gave birth to her first child, she discovered she had a gift for singing. The single mom of two daughters now has a successful music career. Following her studies of classical piano at college and a brief stint at Berklee College of Music, Emily became bored with the traditional “rules” of schooled music and dropped out to pursue punk rock. A cook at Boston’s punk rock club, The Rat, she became fascinated with the electric guitar (now among her primary instruments along with saxophone, drums, bass guitar, and harmonica.)
A full spectrum musician, Emily Grogan has composed a song for a Sony movie, starred in the prime time television show “Rocker Moms”, was nominated for a Boston Music Award for best female vocalist, and played several instruments in several bands.
She is a classically trained pianist, punk rock drummer, reggae saxophonist, guitarist/singer-songwriter/vocalist, who has written and released more than 40 songs to critical acclaim.
As the Boston Herald is quoted saying: “Emily Grogan may well turn out to be the next big thing out of Boston’s music scene…”
She embodies the spirit of freedom. She has hitched with hash traders through North Africa for three weeks, worked on Wall Street and at homeless shelters in Boston, been featured as a medical model at Harvard Medical School and had her song “No Hitch” featured in the Sony Pictures film Jawbreaker.
Bands she’s played in: Boston Bands: Emily Grogan (vocals/guitar/keyboard/harmonica), Red Chord (Alto Saxophone/Guitar/backup vocals), Heidi Saperstein (Bass Guitar), Angeline (Guitar/ vocals/ harmonica), Inky Spoon, Thumb Cramp, and Mr. Butch Experience (Guitar)- NYC Bands: Black Madonna, Screaming Venus (drums).
Vocalist: In addition to being the front woman of her own band, Emily also sings with her side project Angeline.
Additionally, she has worked with Andrea Gillis, Natalie Flannagan, Josh Lederman, Los Diablos, and the Dirty Truckers in the studio. She wrote the song No Hitch for the Sony Pictures movie Jawbreaker. Her new CD includes a song she wrote for vocal powerhouse Andrea Gillis.
The Music Collectibles Extravaganza is a family friendly event featuring all things that appeal to Collectors, Players and Appreciators of Music and Music History.
