Emily Simone is a virtuosic electric violinist who brings her dazzling classical technique to pop music in innovative and delightful 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 renowned DJ’s or creating her own remixes and original tracks, she is equally at home in the concert hall and the club.
Emily has performed at some of the world’s most iconic venues, including Carnegie Hall, Madison Square Garden, Red Rocks Amphitheater, and the Dolby Theatre. 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 has appeared on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon and the Today Show, and was the featured soloist in the touring production ‘INDIA’ (by Franco Dragone of Cirque du Soleil). She performs regularly as a vocalist, violinist and composer with the cutting-edge modern ballet company Quixotic, and has performed with The Who at Madison Square Garden and Louis Tomlinson on his 2022 Faith In The Future tour.
