Come join us for an eclectic night of music from the comforts of your home! Local Massachusetts artists Emma, Ken Marcou, and Support Group will be performing both originals and favorite tunes. Tune in as each act shares the stories behind their original music.

Emma is a Contemporary Pop singer/songwriter from western Massachusetts. Emma loves writing music about the observations of everyday life, and believes the best songs are written from the core of the heart, stripping perceptions and pressures from society and keeping it real. A classically trained pianist, Emma started writing songs as a teenager and began to play the open mic circuit in her hometown, which solidified her love for music and ambition to pursue a career as a performing singer/songwriter. Emma is a relationship builder at heart and has enjoyed attending multiple music conferences over the years to keep growing and developing her craft.
Currently collaborating with a team at Northfire Recording Studio in Amherst, Mass., Emma plans to release her first EP in 2021 with the lead single “Great Escape” coming soon. Additionally, Emma is actively seeking out opportunities to pitch her music, including Film, TV, and artist placements. Emma's latest artist placement is the song "Rise Together" performed by Lisa Yves and co-written with Ken Marcou. On March 19, 2021, the song was debuted on the United Kingdom online radio station Reach OnAir, and was soon released worldwide to all streaming platforms.

Ken Marcou is an award winning musician born in Boston, Massachusetts. His music encompasses strong messages of hope, heart, and inspiration. Writing songs in multiple genres—from blues rock to country to folk—Ken loves being in the studio to arrange and produce his music. Ken began his career as a drummer at the age of two, later joining a marching core at the age of nine, where he developed the disciplines of a drummer. At 16, he formed his first rock band called Sebastian. A short time later he met Bob Carlino and together they formed the rock group, Lodestone. This is where Ken learned to master the art of being a timekeeper. From there he joined the band Viking which went on to become the #1 band in Boston within eight months. The band had a successful multi-year career and toured parts of Europe. He then joined Luis Bettencourt of Viking to record two albums and perform a live concert in Lisbon featuring the Gulbenkian Orchestra, a 54-piece ensemble. The performance was broadcast throughout Europe. Ken was invited to join international Portuguese star Jorge Ferreira and toured extensively throughout Canada, South America, and the Caribbean Islands. Throughout his career, Ken was often interested in becoming a singer/songwriter/guitarist and feels fortunate to be in a place now where that vision is being fulfilled. Currently, he is recording his first album with engineer Andrew Atkin at Northfire Recording Studio in Amherst, Massachusetts. Ken is also available to arrange and produce for other artists and bands in different styles. Additionally, he is actively collaborating with multiple artists as a writer, arranger, and producer. In this next chapter of his career, Ken feels right at home. Ken's latest project as co-writer, arranger, and producer is the song "Rise Together" sung by Lisa Yves and written with Emma Murray. The song debuted on the UK radio station "Reach OnAir" in March 2021 and is now available on all streaming platforms.
