This 1996 Mo Award Finalist for Female Country Performer began her musical career by busking at age 12. Since then she has graduated to opening for country music legends Willie Nelson and Waylon Jennings. Her natural warmth, spontaneity and professionalism combine to deliver a powerful performance that will brighten any function.
Felicity Urquhart has supported the great Willie Nelson, and has a loyal following all over Australia. At the 2001 Golden Guitar Awards in her home town of Tamworth, she won the best vocal collaboration award with fellow young stars Beccy Cole, Adam Harvey and Darren Coggan for a scintillating live a cappella version of Dolly Parton's, Do I Ever Cross Your Mind. In the space of two years Felicity, as she is known, was nominated for Best New Talent and Best Female Country Performer in the Mo Awards.
Since then she has twice been named Female Country Performer of the Year at the Mo awards. She has played everywhere from a stage set up on top of milk crates at a pub in the middle of nowhere, to Nashville, the undisputed country music capital of the world. In 1995, she released her second independent album, Follow Me.
In 1999, Nothing to Hide, was her first major label release under EMI Music Australia. EMI Music Australia says the album is a combination of 'pure country, radio-friendly hooks and soulful balladeering'. The album has achieved mainstream success with the singles Country Girl, We'll Never Get Along and Sugar Town. It also features a duet with Rick Price. Her commitment to an arduous touring schedule has paid off.

"Emma was a joy to deal with, had great suggestions and nothing was a problem when changes required. Pricing, customer service and variety of speakers/entertainers is excellent."
