Emma-Jean Thackray is an award winning composer/ producer/ arranger/ instrumentalist/ singer and as a recent RBMA alumni, has been described by RBMA as “one of the UK’s most exciting new jazz artists”, as “somewhere between Madlib and Ornette Coleman” by Djam La Revue, “one to watch” by the London Evening Standard and as “supremely talented… the sound of South London” by Sounds Of The Universe.

Her recent release WALRUS is gaining a lot of underground support and sits in the collections of some of the worlds’ finest vinyl selectors including Theo Parrish, Chairman Jeff, Mr Scruff, Gilles Peterson and more, and was described by Rhythm Section as “one of the most exciting and unique jazz records of 2016”.
