Internationally renowned and critically acclaimed vocalist, songwriter, composer, producer, and broadcaster Emily Saunders ("UK's Queen of Jazz fusion" SnowBoy) takes the stage by storm, leading an exceptional band of stellar musicians through her spellbinding original songs.
She balances virtuosity and captivating presence with musicianship of the highest order, establishing her not only as a rhythmically inventive jazz vocalist, but a supremely talented songwriter. As a socially conscious wordsmith, many of her songs reflect on society, the fragility of people and the strength of connectivity, oozing hazy sunshiny days and hot sultry nights. Having evolved from seaside holidays, riverside walks and chilled evenings on piano and guitar, her heady mix of Latin-infused hip swaying grooves, with driving basslines, infectious melodies, and edges of drum 'n' bass, pronounce Saunders as 'one for the jazz dance clubs' (Gilles Peterson, BBC Radio6).
What sets Saunders apart is that her musical skill in front of the mic, is matched with talent behind it; 'Absolutely brilliant' Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
