Australia’s Emily Coupe performs soulful pop and folk. Throughout her career, she has drawn inspiration from a wide range of singer-songwriters, including Sheryl Crowe, Jewel, Alanis Morissette, and Colbie Caillat.
First-time roles include “Offspring” with Emily as co-star, as well as “Heavy Tackle” with Chris Benz, as well as “The Story of Jack,” “I Remember the Future,” and “Cybersmart” with Chris Benz, who won a Tropfest award. Acting debut: La Mama Courthouse’s sold-out season of Tales by the Sea was her first on stage.
While she has yet to appear as an independent feature film leading lady, she has recently been cast as a co-star in the A&E series Cold Case Files and in the Netflix original series Corrupt Crime, both of which are now in production. McDonald’s has released a new internet commercial featuring her.
For Emily, the most important thing is to speak from the heart and to do it with a voice that is both honest and grounded, but full of hope and light. Listeners should expect her songs to be sincere and probing reflections on her life’s events and thoughts. Her music tells a tale.
One To Blame will be featured as the opening track for the upcoming movie The Crossroads, in which I play the leading role.
Since moving to Los Angeles, Emily has been honing her performance skills and cultivating relationships with her fans.
Emily just finished filming The Crossroads in Arizona, in which she played the lead and co-wrote and produced the music, as well as directing and editing.
In One To Blame, traditional pop elements are combined with an undercurrent of melancholy to create a song that embodies strength and resiliency.
I wanted this song to capture the all-too-familiar sting of toxic, failing relationships so anyone who relates can blow off some steam, have some fun, and know they’re not alone – while dancing the pain away.
