Emma recorded and produced Bonnie Trash's recent EP, "Ezzelini's Dead," which was released in June of 2017 and gained recognition in the Toronto Star. Her co-collaborator in all of these outfits is her twin sister, Sara Bortolon-Vettor. Together, they publish and perform under their FPOP production collective.

Emma currently holds a BA in psychology from Ryerson University, where she aided in creating musical paradigms for empathy training in youth with high-functioning autism.
