The Trinity revue is very true to form as follows:

Singer songwriter Emma Paki needs no introduction but just like removing your shoes as you enter a house, you must remove your inhibitions to enter hers.

Born in Whakatane in 1968, her voice may whakapapa to the ethereal patupaiarehe of the Urewera ranges, but it was her great aunt who introduced Emma to her first musical instrument, the piano, when she was six. When she was eight her dad scored her a $40 guitar through his mates from the next town. Then the hippie aunties down the road taught her a few chords, surprised that she picked up the strum straight away but as she says, that's what it's like being Maori.

When her mother sat her down and asked her if she wanted to try piano lessons, at eight, she replied yes, writing her first original song at age ten.

Fast-forward fifteen years and she is receiving national honours as best songwriter and most promising female vocalist with the best music video with her hit single System Virtue.

The accolades continued in `94 when her Neil Finn produced single Greenstone topped the charts, followed closely by her debut album Oxygen of Love, released in Australia, Japan and Italy, earning her a Mana Maori Award in 1996.

"Oxygen of Love" is remarkable. Paki has made perhaps one of the most beautiful albums produced in this country yet. She is a very special talent.'' -Metro.
