Emily Fraser: The genre in which singer/songwriter Emily Fraser falls into is hard to place. Having grown up in a creative environment, her father a musician and mother an artist, from a young age Emily witnessed how one could be expressive with creativity and that this did not need to be confined to one particular form or style. With a phenomenal range and agility in her voice – from rich and sensuous earthiness to the resonating and hauntingly ethereal – paired with her delicate touch on guitar, she has an ability to completely transfix; leaving an audience silent, hairs standing on the end. Emily’s writing is deeply personal, her lyrics form direct and intimate messages, chronicling the moment. The candour of her lyrics reveal a wistful astuteness, exploring the struggles to reconcile her thoughts, feelings and actions. Singing with a stirring reflective melancholy, that lays bare a guileless vulnerability, Emily’s voice has the power to pull you through an array of emotions, embracing you in a fully cathartic experience.


A number of 10-minute floor spots will also be available on the night.
