Emma Hannah was born on December 14th 1944 in Young, NSW.

Emma’s busy career in the music industry began in her teenage years. After early classical training, she became very involved in the flourishing Folk movement, and has been a professional singer and musician from that time on. In the mid 1960’s she appeared on the television show - Gary Shearston's 'Just Folk', along with concert performances across a wide area of the Eastern states of Australia

In the early 1970’s she became a regular on John Williamson's popular 'Travlin' Out West' TV series. Later on she made many more appearances on television, including 'Reg Lindsay's Country Homestead'.

In 1975 she signed a recording contract with Wizard Records. Her first single was “Give a Hand, Take a Hand”. In 1976 a Second single “Waiting For The Rain” released. This single charted well in most states which lead to appearances on the television shows “Don Lane” and “Ernie Sigley”. The same year an Album “Be a Lady in the Daytime” was released.

She was inducted into the Hands of Fame in 1979. Her single “Angel of the Morning” won her a national award for Best Country Record of the Year. Then in 1980 she released "Things We Do For Love" an album of 20 great love songs. Emma is still active today.
