Emilie Conway is an award-winning jazz singer, composer and lyricist. Her music is informed and complemented by her love of literature, poetry, sound and silence. She blends her own compositions, spoken word/poetry, with improvised or composed music and her interpretation of familiar and less familiar jazz standards.
Emilie’s current projects centre around her quest to continuously develop as a vocal jazz artist through deepening her collaborative relationship with her long-standing musicians, Johnny Taylor, Dominic Mullan and Barry Donohue through careful choice of creatively challenging and innovative projects in inspiring contexts and settings.
Jazz and Disability
SEE-THROUGH New Work Award from the Arts Council’s Arts and Disability Connect Scheme. In partnership with the Improvised Music Company (IMC) and with the support of Darn Skippy Productions and Dublin City Council Culture Company, Emilie will develop, compose, write and perform a new jazz theatre performance based on her experiences as an artist with a visual impairment.
VOICES An event created by Emilie for Dublin City Council’s Social Inclusion week that gives people who have a disability a supportive platform to give voice to their experiences through music, poetry, spoken word and art in an online event. This event was met with such enthusiasm that Emilie has agreed to run it seasonally.
