Emma is an artist who is creative, sublime to listen to and who will make a difference to your event.
"I've been singing professionally for a while now, and it just gets better. When I get on stage I bliss out whenever I can. I sing songs I love and play with people who are amazing and fantastic fun, so we have a ball. .. Writing new music and celebrating others tunes are the best, bringing some soul, latin and hip hop sounds together, a bit of a twist on the theme, that's what I love to do."
Of Emma's latest full album, Bossa Eyes, The Green Guide four star review had this to say:
"Sidney embraces the Latin American sounds but goes much further. It’s a brave, innovative journey – intriguing to listen to – that leaves the listener wondering where they will be taken. One of the best examples is her take on Wayne Shorter’s Infant Eyes. Its complicated, convoluted melody line would defy most vocalists. Backed by Bob Sedergreen on piano, Sidney holds it together, creating one of the album’s more intriguing passages. Sidney’s interpretation of the lyrics stands out. She understands them and brings them to life."
Having played to corporate and private functions, performed to crowds of up to 7000 and at all of Melbourne's top venues and hotels, Emma is a consummate professional.
