The appealingly watchful-faced Emma Rowley...
— The New York Times, March 2008 (Ben Brantley)

Emma Rowley is a singer, songwriter and pop recording artist. Pursuing her craft has led her to performing in many exciting places including multiple Broadway stages in NYC (LuPone Gypsy in 2007 & 2008, Bye Bye Birdie in 2009) as well as twice performing as a featured performer at Carnegie Hall, singing original music at Nashville’s famous Bluebird Cafe, and fronting the jazz band at the historic Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island, MI. For four years, Rowley focused on earning her Bachelor's degree from Belmont University where she studied Commercial Music & Songwriting.

After her graduation, she found herself back in the area she's always called home in Northern Virginia. It is there that she is focusing on writing and recording new music. Performing live throughout the region has become a full-time job. Alongside her own musical endeavors, she is one of the founding members of the D.C. artist crew “afterparty”, a group of four musicians with extensive experience from the studio to the stage. When working together, their various musical backgrounds provide a deep well of unique artistry. You can book afterparty to perform at your next party or event. (

Emma is excited to connect with more music lovers and local businesses. Her entrepreneurial spirit drives her in building a brand from the ground up through real relationships with real people who share her passion for music.
