BU Today

Arts & Entertainment

Emma Seslowsky has loved music for as long as she can remember. The Chicago native took up piano at age six, began writing original songs at 14 when her parents gave her a ukulele for eighth grade graduation, and has been singing “since the beginning of time.”

Performing under the stage name Emma Jayne, Seslowsky (CAS’18) began as a solo singer-songwriter. It wasn’t until she arrived at BU that she decided to form a band, connecting first with bassist Alexis Fahrney (Questrom’18) on the BU 2018 Facebook page. The two then wrangled drummer Liam Burke (CAS’18) and guitarist Kelsey Hsu (CAS’16) into joining them. Hsu unfortunately was unavailable to perform with the band at the “BU Today Sessions” segment taped earlier this month. But they still managed to captivate with their catchy, upbeat tunes.

BU Today Sessions

In the latest addition to our ongoing series “BU Today Sessions,” which brings our audience live performances by musicians, bands, and songwriters from the BU community, we introduce four bands that are making a name for themselves on the local music scene.

    “Climbin Over” would go over well here in New Orleans! Maybe one day you can make your way down here and perform, perhaps at the Spotted Cat on Frenchman Street. Best of luck in this aspect of your career!
