Emily White is an exciting young talent who has recently appeared on the London music scene after moving from the Midlands.

From an early age, Emily has been around music, growing up with a keen interest in singing and playing piano. Through her school years, Emily started to perform live around her hometown of Derby. Emily studied at ‘Repton school’ with a singing scholarship before going on to study classical music at ‘The University of Birmingham’ where she performed as resident singer for the university’s esteemed ‘Jazz Collective’.

After gaining her music degree at the University of Birmingham, Emily was able to focus on her original music which led to the completion of her debut EP ‘Colourblind’ released in 2016. The EP launch which took place at The Art House in Derby was featured in the ‘Derby Telegraph’ newspaper’s ‘top 5 things to do this weekend’ section. In the words of popular online music blog ‘Storge’, Emily’s EP ‘Colourblind’ is ‘a collection with a distinctly Carpenters vibe’, ‘classic songwriting’, ‘jazz-infused vocals’ and ‘subtle melody beneath’. The 5 tracks on the EP combine beautifully rich and expressive vocals with a contemporary, laid-back and jazz-inspired piano style, in addition to hinting at her love for jazz, soul and the finest songwriters of the 70s.

Emily’s music is a combination of many influences, a mix of old and new, from the likes of Hall & Oates, Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb, Carole King to Tom Misch, Jamie Cullum, Norah Jones and Gregory Porter, and really reflects the rich harmonic and melodic backdrop to the music she listens to.

Emily regularly performs solo and with her full band line-up in London and across the UK, having recently performed at ‘The Bedford’ in Balham as part of the Mayor of London’s #SoundsLikeLondon initiative where the venue presented 4 nights of music with a selection of acts that have been synonymous with the venue over the years. In January, Emily released a full-band cover video of Rag’N’Bone Man’s song ‘Human’ which was recorded live at ‘The Bedford’. Emily has also played her original music at some of London’s most iconic music venues including ‘Ronnie Scotts’, ‘The Spice of Life’ and ‘The Half Moon’ etc. Emily is currently writing and working on her next EP.

As a full-time working musician, Emily has also been part of the function community for several years holding residencies at various pubs/restaurants/hotels and performing at corporate events and weddings across the UK. She takes pride in being a recommended supplier to a number of top wedding venues in Derbyshire and London. All of Emily’s covers are very distinctive and her personality and musical identity shine through. Expect to hear beautifully rich and expressive vocals, combined with a contemporary, laid-back and jazz-inspired piano style. Emily is often compared to the likes of Karen Carpenter, Carole King and Norah Jones which she certainly wouldn’t reject

Emily also makes up one half of the unique covers duo ‘Norford & White’, which combines soulful vocals, cool keys and dynamic drums, reworking classic and current tunes using modern electronics and production.
