“Her phrasing is supple and sophisticated, her dynamic variation astute and her diction exceptional” JOHN SHAND. SYDNEY MORNING HERALD.
Award winning Australian vocalist Emma Pask makes her stage debut at the Orpheum this October.
Recently nominated for an ARIA award for Best Jazz Album of the year and on the back of sell out shows nationally and internationally the past years.
Emma’s effortless honest stage presence combined with her powerful vocal ability leaves audiences spellbound and inspired.
She is sure to delight as she interweaves storytelling through timeless swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms, original material, tender ballads, all wrapped up with some raucous grooving blues.
By request Emma has performed for adoring audiences including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban and Diana, the late Princess of Wales. She has played support for George Benson on his Australian tour and with Latin Superstar Ricky Martin singing her praises, you won’t want to miss her live in action.

In this concert she will be accompanied by Kevin Hunt at the piano.
Kevin Hunt currently performs regularly with Emma and pianist Simon Tedeschi.
James Morrison has the last word: “Whilst it’s fashionable to be a jazz singer these days, she’s the real thing!”
