Emily has a unique voice that is instantly recognisable, with a tone that lends itself beautifully to any repertoire that you give her. She demonstrates a real confidence & skill in her ability to riff & adlib and makes every performance an absolute pleasure for the listener. Throughout my time as her Choir Director (Enchorus), Emily has been nothing but professional, reliable, enthusiastic & a joy to work, resulting in many lead vocal opportunities for her at our own gigs. As one of our most valued members, we have no intentions of losing her anytime soon, but we'd gladly recommend her to anyone who is considering booking her talent...you will not be disappointed!

This girl has the most soulful voice you will ever hear! I worked with her for 3 years, and she is so versatile. She blends brilliantly into choirs, but mostly shines when given the solo. She's all you could ever want in a singer! I cannot wait to work with her again :) Thank you so much for singing The Beatles' 'Love is all you need' at my wedding and making it so special.
