In March 2007 Emmanuelle moved to the secluded Muttonbird Islands south of Stewart Island for 3 months to write and record demo's for her new e.p on a protools home studio run off a diesel generator, and reconnect with her Rakiura Maori ancestory. In January 2008 and 7 months pregnant with her daughter, Emmanuelle went into the studio with local producer/engineer extraordinaire Dale Cotton, to re-record these demo's and craft them into what would become the Vegetarian Savage e.p. Vegetarian Savage is due for release in October 2008 and will be available through her website www.girlego.com
Emmanuelle's sound is an eclectic fusion of folk-dub, and indie-pop. Comparisons are often drawn to Kate Bush.
Originally from Dunedin, Emmanuelle studied piano and vocals at the Nelson School of Music, then Christchurch's National Academy of singing & Dramatic Art. Her debut 5 track e.p In a Piece was recorded and released in 1997, sales of which funded her ticket to London where she spent 3 years gigging, recording a second e.p Half a Glass and working both as a session musician for various producers and as P.A for music management and promotion company UP ALL NIGHT. Upon her return to NZ in 2002 she joined local reggae-rock band Evolver who built up a popular live following in Dunedin and were assisted by BMG in 2004 to release the 5 track edin e.p and video for it's single Stars. Evolver disbanded in 2005.
