CNY Native Emma Jude’s Music and Career at Sea

As Seen On

Vacationing for work? That’s exactly what Emma Jude, a West Genesee graduate does. Jude, a musician has performed her music all around the world. She works for Carnival Cruise Lines, where she entertains guests night after night.

Emma says her musical career kicked off after she performed one of her own songs at her own graduation. “I really got that itch to become a musician” she said. As soon as she graduated, she thought it would be the opportune time to travel, and see the world. That’s when she applied to work for Carnival.

Emma has also had the opportunity to work with renowned musician Mark Doyle “Mark has just been a phenomenal mentor to me…I really look up to him,” she said.  They were able to record two songs together on her first album as well as her most recent album.

Jude says that she lives and works on a ship for 3 to 4 months and then in between ships ahe is able to come home, or see other parts of the world. She’s traveled to Spain, Italy and Australia and has even spent some time in Nashville, which is a little closer to home.

On her quick stop home, Emma will perform on Saturday, July 28th at Kitty Hoynes. Some other shows planned are August 13th at the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, and Saturday August 13th at the Wildcat Sports Pub in Camillus.
