Eman Lam is the sister of Hong Kong based singer-songwriter and musician Chet Lam. Probably influenced by her brother, she began performing music early in life. She sang in some of the song demos composed by Chet Lam, which gained her initial attention from music production company People Mountain People Sea's director Anthony Wong Yiu Ming.
In 2000, Lam met Ellen Joyce Loo at "Original Music 2000" (原音2000), a singing competition in Hong Kong. After the competition, she started performing with Loo at university campuses and tertiary institutions. The team again drew attention from Ming, who decided to sign them under his music production company and later became at17.
In contrast with Ellen Joyce Loo (who has been writing songs which incline more toward Cantopop), Eman Lam’s songs seem to show an inclination toward more varieties of styles including folk, jazz, and blues.
