Emerald has been heralded a unique new sound, a blend of pop, mambo and cool jazz. Her songs are lyrical tales of romance and deception over a blend of Samba, jazz, bossa nova, mambo and crackling vinyl. A mix of 1950's inspired ballroom jazz, cinematic tangoes, groovin' jazz tracks, infectious mambo's and banging beats.
Emerald raised her profile with a sold-out European headlining tour that saw the singer attach a visual flair to her music, winking at the 40s/50s jazz era through both costumes and her performance. Surrounded by an eight-piece, all-male band (says Emerald: “I love it. I’m the girl in the middle and I like all the attention!”), Emerald belted out tracks from her debut record accompanied by a horn and rhythm section, as well as a DJ.
