If there was ever a time for a powerful, loving transformative revolution, that time is now--and this is the music to fuel it!

As Emma's Revolution's friend Pete Seeger inspired them to sing, "Hope changes everything!"
THE NEW YORK TIMES ~ "Fervent and heartfelt"
The duo's songs have been sung for the Dalai Lama, praised by Pete Seeger and recorded by Holly Near. “Peace, Salaam, Shalom” is sung around the world and has been called the anthem of the anti-war movement. “If I Give Your Name” won Grand Prize in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest and the band's music has been featured on NPR's “All Things Considered”, Pacifica's “Democracy Now!” and “The Thom Hartman Show”.
Performing at Unitarian Universalist coffeehouses, convocations and congregations across the country,Emma's Revolution is well known to UU audiences. Since their 2005 appearance with Pete Seeger at General Assembly in Fort Worth, the duo has performed at General Assemblies from Salt Lake City to Portland, OR.
Emma's Revolution wrote "Love Reaches Out" for the 2014 Unitarian Universalist General Assembly theme and premiered the song at a featured performance at the gathering in Providence RI. Their songs,"Keep on Moving Forward", "Swimming to the Other Side" and "Peace, Salaam, Shalom" are sung by UU congregations across the country and included in the "Earth and Spirit Songbook", the UU Tapestry of Faith series and the new UU Spanish Hymnal.
Peace, Salaam, Shalom is sung around the world and has been called the anthem of the peace movement. In October 2015, Emma's Revolution were featured performers at the Parliament of the World’s Religions, leading the song to a gathering of 10,000 global, religious and grassroots leaders and activists. The song was also chosen for Community of Christ's new hymnal. To teach the song to their 250,000 members, Community of Christ created a stunningly beautiful and moving video, Peace Through All People, of congregants and friends from Australia to Zambia singing Peace Salaam Shalom.
