proudly from the beautiful North East of England Emma's mother promoted Jazz bands and her father was a charismatic raconteur . Emma was destined to perform in some way. She possesses a truly fabulous voice and uses it skilfully to move effortlessly between heart-wrenching sweet soul licks & raw, real, powerful blues.
