Emilia Martensson

Emilia Mårtensson 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 vocalists on the UK Jazz scene and she was 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 is the featured vocalist in several projects and has been collaborating, both as singer and as a composer, with artists such as Iain Ballamy(Uk), Kit Downs(Uk), Eric Legnini(Fr), Jasper Hoiby (Uk) and Monocled Man, (UK). Her most acclaimed collaboration led to a MOBO Award with the British group ‘Kairos 4tet’.  

Emilia is a regular performer at some of Europe’s leading venues and festivals and has appeared at The London Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club, Bimhuis in Amsterdam, Sunset Sunside in Paris, Fasching in Stockholm, Ljubljana Jazz Festival and The Love Supreme Jazz Festival in UK to name just a few.

Both of her solo albums ‘And so it goes’ (Babel Label-2012’) and ‘Ana’ (Babel Label-2014) got listed in the ‘top ten best albums’ by JazzWise.

This evening she will be joined by Matt Robinson on piano (Snowpoet) and Adam Waldmann on Saxophones (Kairos 4tet). The trio will play a completely new set of original music and fresh interpretations of well known melodies such as 'Washing of the water' by Peter Gabriel, 'America' by Paul Simon and 'You must believe in Spring' by Michel Legrand.
