Emma van Heyn

Is a South African actor, musician and songwriter. This 24 year old has released a vast kaleidoscope of musical creations. From a 16 track self-produced album, to recent singles and theatre sound design.
Emma has written and composed music since the age of six. When she was seven years old, she made her professional debut at Spier Amphitheatre in the production “Movies’ Greatest Music”which toured around the country. Her solo music career began to surface in 2011 when she was invited to perform one of her originals during the South African streak of Imogen Heap’s international “Ellipse”world tour. “She told me never to stop creating” - Emma listened.
In 2018, Emma did 315 performances is China. Her one-woman musical theatre production, MET SLENTERSLAG na Shanghai, is about that experience. As one of 2019’s Woordfees gems, this production has paved its own successful playing field, touring nationally. This isn’t just a music production, but an autobiographical artwork that showcases her drama, physical theatre and musical training.
From playing piano and singing, to music production and looping – Emma does it all. She does not only make music, but is also an actor. Her music and drama training landed her the lead part in the Silwerskerm short film, LUISTER. Her love of choral music has a strong influence on her original music. She was a member of the Tygerberg Children’s Choir (2003-2008), the South African Youth Choir (2009), the world renowned Stellenbosch University Choir (2014), as well as a member of the SAMA award-winning group, The Voice of Angels (2008).
Co-producer, Uys Visser and SAMA award-winner Marius Brouwer have worked with Emma on her album, Asylum, as well as her singles, I’m Tired of Being Broke and Pageant Queen. She is currently working on new music and theatre productions soon to be publicly released.
