Singer-songwriter and guitarist Emily Kay is back with new EP 'Now or Never' to be released on 12 January 2014. The five-track package offers a variety of sounds, showcasing Emily's unique, soulful voice, including lead, title single 'Now or Never'.
Emily previously released single 'Soldier' taken from her forthcoming EP on 18 August. The single package includes a remix by legendary garage producer Wookie and has received radio play on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Capital XTRA (formerly Choice FM) and Kiss FM to name a few. Emily released her first solo release 'Hold Me Closely' back in March 2013, taken from her EP; 'Emily Kay Unplugged', which gained support from MTV.
Her musical journey began as a youngster in Birmingham, influenced by gospel music, but it was during a trip to New York in her teens when Emily discovered Jazz and decided to pursue a career in music. Combining her love of jazz with acoustic and soul music, Emily found her sound and moved to London.
Influences can be heard in her music from Miles Davis, Billie Holiday, Kirk Franklin and Angie Stone. Armed with a truly distinctive voice, Emily has performed at a number of popular London music venues including Camden Lock, The Cornershop Bar, Underbelly of Hoxton and Starbucks.
Emily also won the Unsigned Hype award for Best Female Acoustic Award Winner and was nominated
for ‘Best Female Act’, at the 2012 BEFFTA Awards.
'Now or Never' is the new single, produced by Dwayne Patrick and written by Emily herself. Check out the visuals for the track below...Soundcloud.com/MsemilykayTwitter.com/msemilykay
