Emma's Revolution Bios & "Pete Seeger & Pat Humphries: A Friendship from First Song to Last"
"Fervent and heartfelt” ~ The New York Times
Known for fearless, truth-telling lyrics and melodies you can’t resist singing, Emma's Revolution is the dynamic, award-winning activist duo of Pat Humphries & Sandy O. The duo’s songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and covered by Holly Near. Their recent release, “Our House is on Fire”, was been selected as the opening track for Hope Rises, a compilation CD from a national nonprofit co-founded by Noel (Paul) Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary. Their upcoming track about the Insurrection, “On a Day in January”, will be released April 1st.
Emma’s Revolution are winners of the John Lennon Songwriting Contest Grand Prize and the first Phil Ochs Award, among other honors.
"Our work has always been about building connection, love and justice through song,” the duo says. "During this pandemic, we have moved as much of our work online as possible, creating opportunities for people to sing together (Zoom-style, of course), use songwriting as a way to process emotions in an unsettled era, and attend concerts where they can have a sense of connectedness, solace and joy, even in this challenging time.”
