Emilie Conway is a heart stealer with the voice of an angel, smooth, mellow, sincere and deeply connected to both music and lyrics. She is no imitator but has a fresh approach and a sound that lingers on.– Fionna Duncan, UK
Emilie Conway is an award winning Dublin born jazz singer whose stage debut was an impromptu session with Jon Hendricks and Kurt Elling in a Chicago club in 1999. She combines a love of melody with a feeling for the nuances of lyrics.
Frequently compared to Julie London, her diction is spot-on at every tempo and, with a straight-ahead style, she appeals not only to jazz fans but also to a more mainstream audience.
She released her debut album, “The Secret of a Rose,” in 2012 which was critically recommended and her second album “Dear World, Emilie Conway Sings Alec Wilder", in 2016.
She performs and tours with some of Ireland’s finest jazz musicians: Johnny Taylor, piano, Damian Evans, double bass, Dominic Mullan, drums and Brendan Doyle, saxophones.
When not touring, Emilie has a Friday night residency at the Wild Goose Grill, Ranelagh.
