Repped by Gilles Peterson, RBMA, Sounds of The Universe and many more, rising mega-talent Emma-Jean Thackray wears many musical hats. As a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, bandleader and DJ, she is just as at home working with the London Symphony Orchestra as she is hosting her show on Worldwide FM or tearing it up on trumpet with her quartet.
Recent solo release Ley Lines on The Vinyl Factory follows Emma-Jean’s acclaimed Walrus EP and maintains her trajectory as one of the most talented young musicians in the business.
