BioEmma Volard is future-soul artist that fuses elements of jazz harmony with percussive vocals, boom-bap neo-soul beats and poetic lyricism. In just over a year, Emma and her collective have become a reputable name in the Melbourne nu-soul scene, known for their knotty intricate grooves that skip between RnB’s dynamic vocals and stop-start hip-hop rhythms to create a cosmic ether of spiritual dance music. The chaotic and spontaneous interplay within their live show captures a raw and organic energy effervescent of the underground jazz scene in the UK. They're set to release their debut LP, ‘Femininity’, in 2020 - a genre-bending blend of textures, grit and vulnerability that explores ideas of gender roles and female empowerment. This will undoubtedly launch Volard’s music high into Melbourne’s music consciousness.
