“A wonderful talent. Emilie Conway sings her songs from her heart. She really means what she sings.” – Sheila Jordan, USA “Star of the show is Conway’s voice.” Hot Press “Classic style,”- The Irish Times
Emilie Conway is an award winning Dublin born jazz singer whose stage debut was an impromptu session with Jon Hendricks and Kurt Elling in a Chicago club in 1999. She combines a love of melody with a feeling for the nuances of lyrics. Frequently compared to Julie London, her diction is spot-on at every tempo and, with a straight-ahead style, she appeals not only to jazz fans but also to a more mainstream audience. She released her debut album, “The Secret of a Rose,” in 2012 which was critically recommended and she is just about to embark on a countrywide Spring tour of the music of Alec Wilder: “Dear World,” Emilie Conway Sings Alec Wilder, together with her regular associates, some of Ireland’s finest jazz musicians: Johnny Taylor, piano, Damian Evans, double bass, Dominic Mullan, drums and Brendan Doyle, saxophones. When not touring, Emilie has a Friday night residency at the Wild Goose Grill, Ranelagh.
“Emilie Conway is a heart stealer with the voice of an angel, smooth, mellow, sincere and deeply connected to both music and lyrics. She is no imitator but has a fresh approach and a sound that lingers on.” – Fionna Duncan, UK
