Emma Rawicz is a young saxophonist and composer, already making waves on the UK music scene. At the age of 19 she has already recorded her eagerly awaited debut album featuring Ant Law, made up entirely of her original compositions, due to be released in early 2022. She has also already created a name for herself both as a bandleader and a sideman. A new arrival on the scene, she has already made an impact, regularly playing at multiple major jazz venues including Ronnie Scott’s and Pizza Express with a wide range of established musicians.
Emma’s influences range from modern jazz and fusion to folk and soul, key figures in her musical development including Chris Potter, Ari Hoenig, Kenny Garrett, Joe Henderson, Chick Corea and more.
Growing up in rural North Devon, Emma didn’t discover jazz until the age of 15, and didn’t pick up the tenor saxophone until a year later, but had spent her childhood otherwise immersed in music as a violinist, playing largely folk and classical music.
Emma is a natural performer and will be presenting more of her new original music from her new project, as well as some music from her upcoming album, “Incantation”. Her music has a unique sound, fusing all her many influences, and her compositions range from lilting Afro Cuban inspired grooves to hard hitting funk numbers.
