With effortlessly sublime vocal blends and heart-melting piano, Emma and Dan will transport you to the speakeasy jazz bars of yesteryear.
These two know how to stay true to the craft of jazz, with a deep respect for the elders who went before them – think Ella, Sinatra and Judy Garland – all the while knowing how to have fun with it. Emma’s lead vocals are natural, warm and rich, seamlessly blending with Dan’s mastery of classic and sensitive musicianship.
Romance is this duo’s middle name.
Emma is a self-described ‘jazz cat’ who grew up listening to ‘the greats’ on vinyl with her Poppa. She once envisioned a future in the kitchen as a chef, but a few dazzling performances on Australian TV (The Voice AU and Channel 9’s Love Child) whisked her off that path and sent her on her way.
In recent years she’s enjoyed her share of success as a singer-songwriter in the Australian music scene. Emma has toured as a support act for US band One Republic, performed in front of 90,000 people at Sydney’s Carols in the Domain and most recently was a featured soloist with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. Emma is at ease with the bright lights of the big stage but at her most relaxed performing soulful, acoustic tunes in intimate and romantic settings.
A musical aficionado in his own right, Dan is the perfect gentleman to Emma’s vocal dance, twirling her around each arrangement like an ever-dependable dance partner. Known as a ‘heart-core’ multi-instrumentalist, Dan brings energy, grace and feel to every musical situation.
Since graduating his jazz-piano studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Dan has worked around Australia and abroad, touring with bands and artists including The Usual Suspects, Carl Risely (Australia Idol) and Chris Ninni (The Voice).
Whether performing background music for over dinner or as the entertainment focus of your event, Emma and Dan are the perfect choice to create the right atmosphere for your occasion. To learn more, contact Tillee Music today.
