Emma Smith is not only a rising jazz star in her own right, but is also one third of the vocal group Puppini Sisters who shot to fame after recordings with Michael Bublé - we can't wait to have her guest with the Strictly Smokin Big Band in October.
With diverse and extensive experience performing everywhere from the 02 Arena to the leading jazz clubs of New York City, collaborating and recording with the likes of Robbie Williams, Georgie Fame and Seal along the way, Emma has created a formidable reputation as a powerful and expressive vocalist.
This show will feature music from Emma's new solo album: Meshuga Baby, as well as a rage of other arrangements performed by Emma on her engagements with the stand-out big bands of Europe.
We're also excited to bring you this show in a brand new venue: The Common Rooom in Newcastle - a beautiful room, fully accessible, great acoustics, an excellent cafe/ bar and great transport links.
Emma's many accolades to date includes the widespread success of the long established vocal harmony group The Puppini Sisters, as well as a stint as a broadcaster on BBC Radio 3, not to mention a range of awards and compliments from organisations and critics alike, including winning the prestigious 'Worshipful Company Of Musicians Medal'. Now with the release of the new album and a series of live dates throughout the UK, Emma Smith will continue her rise to prominence as a multifaceted singer-songwriter with outstanding vocal ability.
