Emily-Rose and the Wild Things
Nu-jazz prog folk pop project, Emily-Rose and the Wild Things, deliver an earthy and profound fusion of acoustic and electric worlds, fronted by Sydney songstress Emily-Rose Sarkova on keys, synths and vocals. Emily-Rose has, over the years, glided between jazz, folk, classical and tango styles with groups such as Chaika, Tangalo, Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, Monsieur Camembert, Marais Project, Chris Cody’s Astrolabe and Rhythm Hunters, performing nation wide as well as touring Europe and South America. As front-woman in this quintet incarnation, the wild things in her head are let loose in lush songs and instrumentals. Think Hiromi meets Punch Brothers meets Snarky Puppy and they all have tea with Joni Mitchell in an alternate universe – with Nick Henderson on bass, Chris Stone on violin, Luke Chapman on guitar and Abby Constable on drums.
