Biography of Emma Nabarro

"A fine jazz singer and educator" Jazzwise Magazine

"A jazz singing natural to rank alongside Clare Teal and Gwyn Herbert." Manchester Evening News

"Une très jolie voix, très limpide, et aussi un peu secrète." Jaques Aubelle

"Her own deeply expressive tone and delivery attracted plaudits wherever she has played" Yorkshire Evening Post

"A fresh jazz singer who floats a song lyric without losing her grip on it." Manchester Evening News

Despite a childhood surrounded by instrumentalists, Emma Nabarro has always been a vocalist at heart. Born in Nottingham, 1979, to a family of professional musicians, she formed musical roots amidst influences ranging from orchestral music to heavy metal, and was inspired by the illustrious recordings of Ella Fitzgerald to move towards jazz singing, and the attractive balance between formal structure and freedom that jazz had to offer. As a student she studied voice with Tina May, and wrote a major thesis on the jazz voice for a BA in Music & English. A passion for both music and words has continued through her original compositions, which take the unusual form of musical poems, rather than standard form. Incorporating some of the finest young jazz players in the UK, she performs with her own trio and various duo partnerships and founded all female jazz trio The Number One Ladies Jazz Agency in 2005. A willingness to give exposure to jazz as a 'current' art form, and to introduce it it to unlikely audiences,as well as hardened jazz fans, has prompted performances in an eclectic range of venues and settings throughout the UK. Based in the north of UK with her partner and young family, Emma has lectured in voice at Leeds College of Music, broadcast on BBC radio and ITV, appearing in a documentary piece about her career in Feb 2006. She has made several recordings, including a new release (Feb ’06) entitled Unphotographable.
