Emilia Martensson is a London based Swedish vocalist and composer of considerable repute. After her three latest album releases Emilia has built a well- deserved reputation as one of the most exciting young vocalists on the UK Jazz scene and she was recently awarded ‘Vocalist of the Year-2016′ at The Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Her gently expressive voice and highly personal compositions are firmly rooted within the folklore and countryside of her native southern Sweden, adding to the mystique and allure of a distinctive and truly original artist.

Emilia will also be giving a vocal workshop at the Goville Hotel 10am — 2:30pm — more details can be found here:
£5 (tickets at the door)

“Ana again proves that Martensson has something very special to offer, and the album is something of simple beauty. There’s a brilliantly judged and utterly natural sounding balance between duskiness and pure-toned clarity in her voice, but what really impresses is a talent for story-telling within the context of her songs and for drawing the listener in”. JazzUK

”A voice of quite remarkable expressive depth” -JAZZWISE
“Exquisitely beautiful songs… Martensson has struck gold.” – JAZZWISE

”Martensson invest every sound with a skimming, rapturous lightness and clarity" John Fordham, The Guardian

”Ethereal Voice" Time Out

the music is immediately enchanting, bewitching, and approachable…” AllAboutJazz

‘«And so it goes’ could easily turn out to be the best new vocal jazz release of 2012″ Selwyn Harris, Jazzwise

“Another delighted feature is the pearly innocence of Martensson’s voice and pianist Barry Green’s understated warmth.” The Daily Telegraph
