Emily Simone is a virtuosic electric violinist who brings her dazzling classical technique to pop music in surprising and stunning ways. Though fully immersed in the world of orchestral music since her sixth birthday, it was an epiphany in a legendary Berlin nightclub that revealed her true calling - to bring the violin into the future.
Emily has since honed her unique style and improvisational prowess, becoming a highly-sought-after performer in her home city of New York and internationally. Whether collaborating with legendary DJ’s or creating her own remixes and original tracks, her performances are equally suited to concert halls and 3am dance sets.
Emily has performed at some of the world’s most iconic venues, including Carnegie Hall, the Dolby Theatre, Red Rocks Amphitheater and Madison Square Garden. Performances for brands such as Qatar Airways, St Regis, Google, Dom Perignon, MAC, The Blondes, Stoli and Victoria's Secret have taken her to many far-flung destinations around the globe, from Mykonos to Bahrain.
An eclectic and versatile collaborator, Emily has toured the US with hip-hop legend Kurtis Blow, and was recently invited to perform at the high-profile ballet fundraiser Gala De Danza in Cabo San Lucas. She was the featured soloist in the touring production ‘INDIA’ (by Franco Dragone of Cirque du Soleil), and performs regularly as a vocalist, violinist and composer with the cutting-edge modern ballet company Quixotic. Most recently, she performed with the Who at Madison Square Garden.
