London, U.K.

Emma-Lee Moss (born c. 1984), known by her stage name Emmy the Great, is a London-based singer-songwriter. Her debut album, First Love, was released February 9, 2009. Moss was born in Hong Kong to an English father and a Chinese mother. Being into music from a young age, she would take the train to her nearest Tower Records so that she could buy the only non-Chinese music they had and, as a result, she got into bands such as Weezer, The Smashing Pumpkins and The Lemonheads. She emigrated with her family to London at the age of 12 and grew up in the English Shires - at one point living in a canal boat in Oxford.
