Emily Rigz is a prolific songwriter, guitar shredder, max energy performer now fronting her own band. Based in the Blue Mountains, Emily can be found playing in Sydney venues thrashing the hell out of her 12 string guitar and hollering her lyrics down the mic with all the passion of a seasoned warrior. This year saw the release of Emily’s debut album “Everything’s a Rhythm” which led to the formation of the Emily Rigz Band. Now backed by Neil Beaver and Brad Kimber who are two of Sydney’s finest and funkiest musicians, the trio are a small rock band pumping out an absolutely massive sound.
