Event details:

Inspired by jazz vocal legends and the Swedish folk songs of home, Emilia’s pure, clear-toned, intimate voice brings a wistful and haunting quality to some of the greatest songs of the last century.

With a line-up including cellist Ben Davis, Julian Siegel on bass clarinet, John Blease on drums and piano from Barry Green, this is an evening of homage to artists they love, interpreted through jazz influences and folk filters. Alongside Swedish folk songs, Nat King Cole swing and other well-known songs and styles, Emilia will also be performing her own original work, and a beautiful song written for her by Billy Joel.

Emilia’s critically acclaimed contributions to jazz’s newest stars Kairos 4Tet, both as vocalist and lyricist, have no doubt helped bring home a 2011 MOBO Award, while her distinctive voice led the Observer to claim her ‘The New Face of British Jazz 2012’.
