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.
