Albums

Never Just a Dream

She released her debut album Never Just a Dream in 2008 to critical acclaim from the Toronto Star and the Globe and Mail. The album was picked up by Bumstead Records and re-released on March 3, 2009. Her vocal style is frequently compared to k.d. lang, Norah Jones and Feist. No Depression magazine described Never Just a Dream as "an album so full of ideas and potential that it is hard to know how to properly frame a description of its contents. It is a collection of songs that is far more than the sum of its influences" and dubbed her "the voice to remember from 2009."

Emma-Lee's song "That Sinking Feeling" was featured as the single of the week on iTunes Canada.

Backseat Heroine

On February 7, 2012, she released her long awaited second album Backseat Heroine, co-produced by Emma-Lee, Karen Kosowski and Marc Rogers. The album features collaborations with Nicole Atkins, Jill Barber and Luke Doucet. Most of the album was tracked at The Chalet, a studio near Uxbridge, Ontario. Backseat Heroine blends multiple musical genres including pop, country, soul and rock. According to her online biography, "Emma-Lee's goal was to make a record that lived and breathed in its own world and could cross genres while still being a soundscape that was complete from start to finish."
