Emma took her first singing lessons in 2007 after the discovery of the famous Nightwish song « Nemo » and the amazing voice of Tarja Turunen. Since then, her passion for music and particularly symphonic metal has never stopped growing. She started being part of several cover bands and then joined in 2010 the Dark Whispers Choir of Whyzdom.
In October 2012, attracted by its melodies and energy, Emma joined Evolvent as a lead singer and released with the band, an EP and an album. Fast captivated by live performance, Emma organized Evolvent’s first French tour in 2013 and a European tour in 2015 in order to promote the fresh released album “Whatever Happens”.

In December 2015, Emma founded with Clement Botz, ex-member of Evolvent, a new symphonic metal band, Beneath My Sins, wishing to set free to her creativity and to participate more to the composition work. Together with Clement Botz, composer and guitarist, they composed and wrote the lyrics of Beneath My Sins’s first album “Valkyries of Modern times” released in March 2017.

Always in search for new challenges, Emma decided to take singing lessons with the French teacher, David Féron, specialised in clear and “metal” singing, never experienced by Emma before. She will be able to show her new abilities on the upcoming album of Beneath My Sins, planned for 2019.

Clement starts his immersion in music very early, starting with 10 years of classic lessons in clarinet. He obtains his diploma from the Conservatoire of Marseille in 2008. At this time his passion for metal also grows; he decides to learn to play the guitar. He yearns for creation, and quickly starts composing a lot. Willing to complete his knowledge, he then learns to play the piano, the drums, the bass, as well as basic sound engineering and computer assisted music, by himself.

The real adventure starts when he joins the band Evolvent in 2013 as a guitarist, finding at last people with equal ambition and determination. The experience in Evolvent makes him take part in one EP (Human Instinct) and one album (Whatever Happens) in which he brings some of his own compositions. It’s in Evolvent that he meets Emma Elvaston, with whom he creates Beneath My Sins in december 2015.

The purpose of the new band is clear : to lower the barriers and release the full creativity of their founders. About one year after a new album is created : Valkyries Of Modern Times, fully composed and written by Emma and Clement. After more than 50 shows together, a lot of live experience, and new skills in their hands, the band is ready to work on their new album and deliver a quality live show
