Emma Ejwertz is a Swedish singer/songwriter and lead guitarist who grew up in southwest Sweden. In recent years she has been living in Los Angeles. Emma has been writing songs since she started listening to Fleetwood Mac, Nirvana and Muse in her early teens. She studied music at a performance arts high school in Sweden before coming to Los Angeles as an exchange student in her senior year of high school. While pursuing her music career in Los Angeles, Emma met Scott Weiland and Douglas Grean through a musician friend. She performed for them at their recording studio in Burbank and they recorded a demo with her after being impressed with her voice and guitar playing. Scott sang backup on a number of songs, including a cover of “Heart Shaped Box”. When Emma’s vision for her demo differed and Scott became unavailable, she began to look around for a new producer. Emma was introduced to Steve Gryphon through an A&R representative Daniel Shulman (Garbage). They completed work on a new demo with a different direction in December 2004, but Emma returned to Sweden when a Swedish version of one of her demo tracks allowed her to be awarded the Ted Gärdestad scholarship in Sweden. [2] That offered Emma the chance to appear on television in Sweden and perform her song, “Tilda”, in front of audiences there. Emma returned to the US in 2005 and started a new band, Nerviosa. The band parted ways in 2007 and Emma focused once more on her solo career. She reunited with producer Steve Gryphon to record her first independent release, “Dizzy Arms”. The album included one song she had originally written for Nerviosa, “Pavement”, and showcased Emma’s guitar playing and unique sound, as well as her haunting vocals. In 2008, Emma was chosen to sing the main title for season 2 of the FX network Dirt TV series. Many songs from her album were used in the show, which starred Courteney Cox, and “We’re Not Beautiful” gathered public interest when it was used to score a steamy scene between Cox and her co-star, Josh Stewart. “It Makes Sense” was used in The Starter Wife (TV series) from USA Network and scores the conclusion of that series. After the release of “Dizzy Arms”, Emma made the acquaintance of Mark Pellington when she submitted a song to the contest promoting his film “Henry Poole Is Here”. Mark directed a video for the song “We’re Not Beautiful” and the publicity from the contest brought Emma in touch with David Neibla, who directed a video for the song “Killer”. In 2011 Emma got asked by Mark Pellington to write a song for his upcoming film “Melt with you” featuring Rob Lowe and Jeremy Piven. Emma was one of the few female artists to get featured in this unique movie that got bought up by Magnolia films. In late 2012 Emma Ejwertz released her second record “Tondra” that got positive response from the Scandinavian music market as well as in the US. Her song “Dizzy Arms” was featured in the hit TV show ‘Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ in 2012 as well as a cover of “ This women’s work” written by Kate Bush. In early 2013 Emma got an endorsement deal with Line 6, and she is also going to be one of their featured artist of their new marketing camping this April. Emma is currently shooting music videos for her tunes Vultures, Here and Aura off her new record Tondra. She is planning an upcoming tour in 2013 in the US and Scandinavia.
