Esme Emerson

Sunday 18 June
New Dawn Stage

The duo, Esme Emerson, are British-Chinese siblings who write indie-pop/indie-folk tunes from their family home in Suffolk. Their music—characterised by gentle melodies and delicate harmonies—is a careful balance of both electronic and organic elements. In tandem, they create the intimate sound and enchanting world that is, sincerely, Esme Emerson.


Their debut EP “S For Sugar, D For Dog“, has amassed over 300,000 streams on Spotify and has received support from tastemakers such as Radio 1, 6 Music and Communion Music. The beginning of 2023 brought the pair support from Youth Music in the form of the Old Jet Airspace Programme and, with a whole catalogue of new music in the works, Esme Emerson are on track for an exciting year.


New Dawn is our festival programme that supports some of the brightest emerging musical talent in the East.
