  • Singer / Actress


Singing, recording voice-overs, acting or presenting is what I love doing.

All round-performer, storyteller, chairwoman, actress, children’s yoga and singing teacher, personality, there are so many words for the variety of hats I wear.

And boy do I love hats!

In one word: it’s Emmelie Zipson. Thanks to my Dutch mum and English dad who chose for this English phonetically written name. One of a kind it seems. I’m a mixture of Eastern European, English and Dutch blood. A complex melting pot which feels great, apart from not being able to speak six languages. But my Dutch and English are fluent.

If you’re from my generation and from Holland, you might recognize me from Dutch television series like Finals (BNN) or Juliana (EO). Or perhaps from my one-woman shows, or maybe just because of my enormous curly hair, which I often have to tame otherwise I look like an exploded sheep. Luckily, I’ve had the honor of playing with a variety of great musicians and creatives, with whom I’ve performed throughout Holland and in theatres.

During the last couple of years I’ve showcased some music programs in which I performed in intimate settings at, so called, living room festivals. At the moment I’m asked more regularly as a chairwoman, a role where I can use my experiences with great pleasure. Sharing stories and songs, or presenting in front of a live audience or even the camera, gives me a feeling of connection. Something we truly need, as connection will make us stronger and bring us closer together.

I love to express myself on stage or in a microphone in a (voice) studio, dive into a character or sing. Writing stories or poems, entertaining and moving people pretty much sums it up. Creating something out of a personal story and bringing it alive is my strength. So, do you have a story that needs be told or sung, are you in need of that one presenter or chairwoman to present your event with humor or may you have another wish fulfilled? I’m at your service and would love to hear from you or your company.

Warm regards, Emmelie
