Women In Blues Revue featuring Jenie Thai & Miss Emily
Edmonton-raised Jenie Thai is tough, gritty, sweet and known for her barrelhouse piano playing steeped in the blues. Her contemporary R&B sound is mixed with old-school tradition and plenty of heart. With multiple Maple Blues Award and Edmonton Music Award nominations, plus an honourable mention in the International Songwriting Competition to her name, Jenie is mature beyond her years as a singer, keyboard player and songwriter and has a fiery passionate voice that will continue to take her far.
Southern Ontario jazz gem Miss Emily has an innovative spirit and creative force, and her incomparable vocals are surpassed only by her electrifying, roof-rattling performances. With legends Ray Charles and Aretha Franklin as her mentors, her sounds of soul drenched blues, old-school R&B and jazz take audiences by storm. Her most recent album Defined by Love is described as “a 12-song meditation on deception, pain, resilience and finding strength among the ruins of heartbreak.”
Together they present an unforgettable night of blues that can’t be missed.
