The Emilie Conway Jazz Quartet - You Must Believe in Spring

VOCAL JAZZ Tuesday 31st January @ 8.00pm

***image1***Join jazz vocalist Emilie Conway for the launch her debut album "The Secret of a Rose" with an evening of music to celebrate spring as a season of new love, hope and change: "You Must Believe in Spring", "Joy Spring", "Aguas de Marco", "It Might As Well Be Spring", "But Beautiful", "So In Love" and many more..

Emilie explains, "The repertoire for this concert and album developed out of my personal response to the prevailing negativity in our country the past few years. Life has taught me that there is always hope and there is beauty and that this is a beautiful life we have here, despite, and indeed because of the light and the shade.Born in Dublin, Emilie has won scholarships to Berklee College of Music, Boston, The Vermont Jazz Centre, and Souza Lima, Brazil, She has studied with Sheila Jordan, Jay Clayton in the US, and Fionna Duncan UK. Her main influences are Billie Holiday, Elis Regina, Edith Piaf, Abbey Lincoln, Kurt Elling and Joni Mitchell but also include Prokofiev, Satie, Ravel, Mahler and Dolly Parton.

Strong ties with jazz musicians and audiences outside of Ireland have seen Emilie a welcome guest vocalist in Vermont, Boston, Chicago and Europe. In 2010 she was invited to perform at The Copenhagen Jazz Festival and at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. At home "Emilie Sings Elis," a Tribute to Brazilian singer Elis Regina got festival invitations to the Ranelagh Arts Festival, and Flatlakes Festival, while "Emilie Sings Billie, a Tribute to Billie Holiday" won an Arts Council touring grant. Emilie has made several radio appearances on Arena Arts show on RTE 1 radio, most recently on 18th Oct 2011 as part of RTE's Big Music week. The Emilie Conway Quartet perform regularly at their musical home: Bewley's Café Theatre, Grafton St. Dublin.

This evening also features the talents of Emilie's top in-demand Quartet. Johnny Taylor, piano, Dave Fleming, double bass, Dominic Mullan, drums are among Ireland's leading musicians, sought after by leading jazz musicians north and south. The quartet has been working together for the past 6 years so that, according to Emilie, "the musical relationship has become so close as to be symbiotic".
