Emaline Delapaix is an Australian singer, composer, and musician who lives in Berlin Germany with her big orange Canadian cat Reece. She spends a lot of time writing intense folk pop for piano, acoustic guitar, Celtic harp and sometimes whatever else she has lying about the place. Some say she sounds a little like Kate Bush or Tori Amos, but she also loves a lot of Scandinavian music: music that invokes the weather like storms and warm sunsets.
Emaline’s lyrics explore the human condition and thought provoking topics such as depression, animal rights, feminism, sexuality as well as love, nature and, adventure out on the open road .
After a difficult year of illness and depression, in 2010 Emaline decided to quit her day job in Toronto Canada, moving to an isolated fixed caravan in rural Eastern Germany close to the Polish border where she taught herself to play 3 instruments and lived for a year and half before settling in Berlin as a professional musician. Since that time she has performed over 500 shows all over Germany, Europe, Australia and Canada, creating a dedicated following and becoming well known for her raw and passionate live performances.
In Spring 2015, she made her film debut as a silent narrator and composer for the Arte German/French Television documentary ‘Helden der Zukunft’ (Heroes of Tomorrow ), an environmental film set in the future looking back on the current crises we are facing today. Aside from music, Emaline is also a vegan and animal activist who regularly gives a % of her CD sales to local animal shelters while out on the road.

“The original compositions were powerful and rocked but also melancholic and tender, especially when Emaline accompanied herself on the piano. Charming storytelling: that of love and loneliness, the origins of the songs and of her unconventional way of life rounded off the evening perfectly.” Ku : L Kulturhaus, Oblarn Austria
