Emma’s Revolution is the award-winning “activist power duo” of Pat Humphries & Sandy O. “Inspiring, gutsy and rockin,’” their songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger, and covered by Holly Near. With beautiful harmonies and genre-defying, Beatles-esque eclecticism, Emma’s Revolution delivers the energy and strength of their convictions, creating new standards in the art and culture of justice.

Emma’s Revolution were featured performers at the UnNaugural Concert, held just outside of Washington DC on January 20th. At the soldout event, which also featured Sweet Honey in The Rock, the duo premiered their latest song, “Vote (The Trump Rewrite),” a potent and witty response to the voter suppression and Electoral College debacle of 2016. The duo were also featured performers at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, singing their song, “Peace Salaam Shalom”, to nearly 10,000 global and religious leaders, grassroots activists, and practitioners from 50 traditions–and more than 80 countries–who gathered to collaborate to achieve a more peaceful, just and sustainable world.
