Brazilian tunes with a London twist: Critically acclaimed Emily Saunders, ‘one to look out for’ (The
Guardian’s John Fordham), first came to attention with her debut album ‘Cotton Skies’, gaining four star reviews, and extensive press coverage. Exuberant, hip swaying grooves and romantic melodic songs wrapped around Brazilian rhythms alongside musicianship of the highest order established her not only as a rhythmically inventive vocalist, but a supremely talented composer, songwriter, producer and lyricist; with her music Released March 2015, her critically acclaimed album ‘Outsiders Insiders’ is remarkably assured, polished and accomplished. Played on radio stations around the world (eg Australia, Mexico, Spain, Germany, South Africa, UK to name a few), and charting internationally on iTunes and Amazon, Emily has truly become a global force in the players alive” – Jazzwise Magazine (played with Courtney Pine, Mica Paris, Loose Ends), Steve Pringle, piano
(worked with Joss Stone, Michael Kiwanuka, Abram Wilson, Denys Baptiste), Paul Michael, bass (Julian Joseph).
Cotton Skies focuses on Brazilian rhythms – her take on songs from iconic composers Pascoal and Moreira are stunning. Outsiders Insiders confirms her as a true talent in the genre – two of her very own Brazilian tunes place a London twist on an upbeat samba and Baião tune; both Brazilian pop standards in the making. Outsiders Insiders driving basslines, sultry ballads, reflections of 60’s soul jazz and playful textures that together reflect her love of rhythm. Influences include Chick Corea, Airto Moreira and Portishead.
