Music

Greene is a pop songwriter, singer, and keyboard player. She writes poetic, mad-hatter lyrics that crackle like motorcycle exhaust, and hooks that get stuck in your head.

After graduating from Berklee, she moved to the East Village and focused on songwriting and a slew of collaborations. She became a staple of the New York singer/songwriter scene within her first few months; she released a compilation of songs called Is This What You Had In Mind, working with producer and film composer, Dan Romer (Christina Aguilera, Beasts of the Southern Wild), and booked residencies at the Living Room and Rockwood Music Hall.

 

Riothorse Royale

Riothorse Royale is an indie rock duo with Emily Greene and Madi DIaz. Managed by Phil Costello at Red Light.

 

Hollywood Animal

Hollywood Animal is alt-rock project about wanting more. Power pop, anthemic choruses, killer rock singles. Songwriters include: Greene, Nate Lotz (Ryan Adams, Halsey, Blacktop Queen), and Bruce Driscoll (Blondfire, Freedom Fry).

 

Passion Pit

Greene played keyboards and sang backups on Passion Pit's Gossamer tour in 2012. They played X cities across North America, Europe, and Asia, and legendary stages and festivals including Reading and Leeds, Summer Sonic, Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Osheaga, Made in America, Rock En Seine, and SNL.

 

Kissy Girls

Greene's art-rock trip-hop project, Kissy Girls a collaboration with Pascal Le Boeuf, a jazz pianist and avant-garde electronic music producer, described by the New York Times as having a "hyper-chic aesthetic and hyper-fluid modern ideal." The sonic aesthetic sparkles with paradox: downtempo yet epic, experimental yet accessible, cacophonous yet calming, spacious yet whispering-close, awakening yet dreamy. Whatever it is, Le Beouf and le Greene just call it "headphone music." Vibe out.

 

Imoto

Imoto was an indie rock project and collaboration among Greene's favorite musicians at Berklee: Alex Wintz (guitar), Andrew Toombs (keyboards), Sean Gordon (bass), and Daniel Platzman (drums). Moody, modal chord progressions, deft polyrhythms, eccentric meter, inexorable groove. White hot metallic guitars with a glimmer of psychedelia -- and smokeshow vocals. It was a sweet spot for Greene as an artist and she started developing more indie rock projects alongside her singer-songwriter catalogue.
