PathologyOutlines.com celebrated 20 years of operation in August 2021 and wants to give back to some of those suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic. For 2021, we will be promoting select classical and jazz musicians each month on our website and with a cash stipend. Recipients of this award will be posted each month and will remain visible on the website throughout the year.
The September Recipient for this award is Em and Em Duo.
Em & Em is an acoustic duo that performs a large variety of styles including jazz, folk and pop. Emilio and Emma met during their undergrad at Cal State Long Beach. Since forming Em & Em Duo in 2016, they’ve performed at many venues around Los Angeles and Orange County. They released their first acoustic album of originals, “Take Our Time,” in 2019 and released their second album, “You Are,” with a full band in May of 2021. They believe in playing and writing music that moves them, and sending a message of strong community relationships.
The last year has brought a lot of change for both of them with Emma moving to Michigan to start a graduate degree in jazz voice at Western Michigan University, and Emilio starting a family in LA. They continue to compose and collaborate together from across the country, including their 2021 album that was recorded and produced completely remotely.
