Depending on when you walk in on a song, Emma's music might sound like folk, jazz, even R&B. It's music that never stays put, full of moving parts, shifting tempos, and winding melodies. Her songs are journeys of self-discovery, framed by insightful lyrics and her warm, gossamer voice that songwriter Leif Vollebekk described as "like leather on silk."
"Emma Frank, who reaches a sublime new plane of musicality on her excellent third album, is an artist worthy of observation with serious ears."- Ron Hart, DownBeat
"Vocalist Emma Frank brings genuine peacefulness and transparent honesty to everything she touches." -Sébastien Hélary, Nextbop
"Since her early days as a fixture on the Montréal jazz scene, Emma Frank has expanded the delicate nature of her voice, developed a phrasing that is her own with clear melodic lines that bloom magnificently, and presented quasi-folk landscapes reinforced by contemporary jazz harmonies and rhythms… Ocean Av will satisfy those who seek sophisticated songwriting."- Alain Brunet, La Presse
