Emm Gryner is an award-winning Canadian singer, songwriter, actor and best-selling author. Emm sang and played keyboards in David Bowie’s band, and appears on numerous recordings, including his landmark 1999 SNL appearance, Bowie at The Beeb and Toy. Bowie’s acclaimed Glastonbury 2000 documents her performance in front of more than 100,000 fans at Worthy Farm. 

With her own band she has released many albums and been nominated 3 times for a prestigious Juno Award. Emm has shared arena stages with Def Leppard, and she also helped bring the first music video recorded in outer space to the world. The video has had over 200 million views to date. 

Emm and her band will be playing songs from her new album ‘Business&Pleasure’ as well some of her solo classics plus stories from her career and time in David Bowie’s band. 

Detroit radio formed the soundtrack of Emm’s life and career and her forthcoming new record is a celebration of that music. From Motown, jazz and pop, to Steely Dan, Fleetwood Mac and The Doobie Brothers, Business & Pleasure is infused with the sunshine soul and stellar playing of the late 70s and early 80s. These songs, written with poet Michael Holmes, and recorded with drummer Shannon Forrest (Toto), keyboardist Pat Coil (Michael McDonald), singer Catherine Russell (Steely Dan), and guitarists Tom Bukovac (Taylor Swift) and Pat Buchanan (Hall & Oates, Dolly Parton), embody a take on yacht rock that sails deep into the 2020s and introduce the world to a bold new character.
