EMMALINE Cleary's musical career is progressing in leaps and bounds.

She has gone from singing on her dad's lap as a toddler to recording an album with some of the world's most famous producers.

Just last month Emmaline signed an album deal with outspoken US basketball player recently turned recording artist Metta World Peace.

(The outlandish character is well known in the US, and legally changed his name to Metta (first name) World Peace (surname) last year.)

"It is great to be dealing with someone like that," Emmaline said.

"He has a colourful personality.

"He is a good person to have on your team."

Living large in the US and hanging out with professional athletes is a far cry from the streets of Toowoomba where Emmaline spent her formative years.

The singer songwriter was born in Kingsthorpe and attended Toowoomba State High School.

"When I was little dad (Kevin Cleary) was really into music," Emmaline said.

"It was something that we bonded over, we listened to music together."

In her teens, Emmaline started writing and performing with bands in Toowoomba. After high school she fronted several bands before relocating to Sydney and launching her solo career.

Next month, however, Emmaline's career will come full circle when she performs a free gig at Bon Amici Cafe on November 16.
