Emma de Goede has been in the music industry, performing for over 15 years. She is a sought after professional vocalist, songwriter, performer, recording artist and singing teacher. Growing up, she had a diverse creative arts education, but her journey ultimately led her to graduate top of my class with a BMus degree in Jazz Performance at UCT’s South African College of Music, specialising in jazz voice. She has won multiple music competitions (national & international) throughout her music career and have performed at high profile events and prestigious venues including Kirstenbosch Gardens, the Baxter Theatre, Artscape Theatre Centre and Cape Town City Hall. Most recently, in her capacity as a jazz vocalist, she was a semi- finalist in the 6th Unisa International Voice Competition.
Emma is also one half of alternative-pop duo, Emerger, formed together with multi-instrumentalist/ producer partner, Gerrit Matthee. With the release of their self-produced and celebrated debut album ‘Bloom’ in 2018, their dreamy, synth- driven melodies, cinematic progressions, powerful vocals, and punchy beats have been making waves both nationally and overseas. Their single ‘Break & Fall’ was a winner of the Abbey Road Studios International song competition, picked from nearly 5000 entries and gave the duo the opportunity to attended sessions at Abbey Road Studios in London. Shortly after the release of ‘Bloom’ they were featured as Apple Music’s New Artist Spotlight and in Apple Music's 10 Albums You Must Hear This Month (July 2018). Their music was also featured on the BBC Introducing show in the UK.
Female vocals accompanied by piano (keyboard) or guitar, double bass and drum kit. You could also top up the trio or quartet with a a horn such as saxophone or trumpet.

Dear Dan, I can say unequivocally that having Moonshine at our wedding was one of the biggest highlights of the day! You guys blew everyone away. It was such a pleasure working with you and I will recommend ShoutMC at every opportunity. Meg was wonderful too. Thank you again.
Marianne & Greg
Dan!!! You guys were INCREDIBLE!!! No one will stop raving to us about you 🙂 You made a special day so much more special and we’ll be forever grateful. The band was great, the sound was great, the whole vibe was just amazing. Did you guys manage to squeeze in a bit of a game drive before you left? We saw Romy off at the airstrip and then got a text of a photo from my best man with Ndumiso at the airport! Photographers said it might be up to 12 weeks to get all the pics back but once we have them we will send your way 🙂
