Repped by Gilles Peterson, Red Bull Music Academy, Sounds of The Universe and many more, rising mega-talent Emma-Jean Thackray wears many musical hats. As a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, bandleader and DJ, she is just as at home working with the London Symphony Orchestra as she is hosting her show on Worldwide FM or tearing it up on trumpet with her quartet. No slouch to live, 2019 saw many shows and festivals shows across Europe, playing no less than 5 shows at Glastonbury 2019. She will be following up her acclaimed Ley Lines EP in 2020 with a slew of releases planned.
