Songtress and pianist Emily-Rose Sarkova launches her new wild and lusciously jazz inspired quintet. Bringing in the new year with new sounds of original songs, improvisations and tangled takes on some of her favourite standards.
One of Sydney’s most dynamic multi-instrumentalists, Emily-Rose glides between jazz, classical, folk and tango styles with groups such as Chaika, Tangalo, Monsieur Camembert, Marais Project, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and the Klezmer Divas. Emily-Rose and the Wild Things is a return to her first love of the piano and intricacies of song writing. Inspired by the likes of Avishai Cohen, Punch Brothers, Esperanza Spalding and Hiromi, this new quintet will be the launch into a wild world of beautiful sound.
Joining Emily-Rose’s frenetic fingers on the keys and vivacious vocals are Luke Chapman – guitar, Nick Henderson – double bass, Carl St Jacques – viola and James Harris – drums.
