Big, bad beauty from Boise, Idaho, Emily Braden covers a lot of ground. Whether she’s fronting an genre-defying orchestra or leading a world-class trio in the heart of Manhattan, Braden has the innate ability to win the heart of any audience with her powerhouse vocals and striking stage presence.
Winner of New York City’s prestigious "Best of the Best" Jazzmobile Vocal Competition, Braden’s signature sound is an effortless blend of jazz and soul. Her debut album Soul Walk is composed of high-energy originals and "flipped-out" jazz standards. Producer Misha Piatigorsky says, “As a singer, Emily has no boundaries. She gives me goose bumps.”
See Braden live @ the cell and she’ll make you a believer. This girl is smokin’, smokin’ hot.
