Biography[edit]

Hewitt was the lead singer of the Australian rock band Missing Hours, with whom she released an eponymous debut album in October 2008 through Sony Australia. The band that she formed with her brother Anthony is no longer active; in 2010, she and her brother were based in Europe and writing electronic dance music.[4]

Although Hewitt had a musical background in rock music, she released her debut single in 2007 in the field of progressive house: "Carry Me Away" was a collaboration with British DJ Chris Lake. The single reached number 11 in the Spanish singles charts, and number 12 in Finland.[5] The single spent a total of 50 weeks in the Billboard Hot Dance Airplay charts in the United States and reached number 1 in December 2007.

After the success of her first single, she became a trance singer, working with several trance artists such as Armin van Buuren, Dash Berlin, Cosmic Gate, Gareth Emery, Serge Devant and BT. The single "Waiting", which she published with Dash Berlin in 2009, was ranked 25th in the Belgian singles chart and No. 1 on the Global Trance Charts. In Armin van Buuren's radio show A State of Trance the single was elected by the audience with 2,109 votes as the second best song of the year 2009.[6] At the International Dance Music Awards 2010 "Waiting" was awarded as best HiNRG/Euro Track. She was nominated twice in the category Best Trance Track with "Waiting" and "Not Enough Time".[7]

Her debut album, Burn The Sky Down, was released in 2012. Since then, she has had various collaborations with DJs such as Armin van Buuren, Cosmic Gate, Gareth Emery, Aly & Fila, Dash Berlin, 3LAU, Schiller, and Andrew Rayel, which have been placed in Trance charts around the world.

In 2016, her song "Restless Hearts", produced alongside Mark Sixma, received a 138-bpm remix from Ben Nicky. The remixed version was crowned "Future Favorite" on A State of Trance episode 767. [8]

In 2020, Emma Hewitt joined forces with Ilan Bluestone and Maor Levi, forming the progressive trance supergroup Elysian and announcing her debut on the Anjunabeats music label.[9] The trio released their first single "Moonchild", preparing the audience for their first EP, named Water, which was released on September 18. According to an interview for Athens Calling, the group has in plan another EP and a worldwide tour after the coronavirus pandemic. Hewitt stated the first single of her second album is going to be out in November and she is planning a tour accompanied by acoustic instruments.[10]
