Emma Volard is a future soul artist whose compositions break the boundaries of soul music by fusing elements of jazz harmony, broken beat and gut-wrenching lyricism to create a cosmic ether of spiritual dance music. The chaotic and spontaneous interplay within their live show captures a raw and organic energy effervescent of the underground soul scene in the UK.
For Emma, it is clear that her music is deeply rooted in seeking justice and storytelling with political, environmental and personal undertones that share her own reality and reflect upon universal truths. Emma’s vulnerable personal lens in the industry shows a sensitivity towards life’s foibles that she believes is “influenced by the presence of her non-verbal severely autistic and epileptic sister Adelaide” in her upbringing. Through her distinct lyrical expression and incessant groove, Emma hopes to continue to provide a voice for not only her sister but a voice for change in today’s modern diaspora; a voice for those who aren’t heard.
