Award-winning Emma Langford performed at Dolan’s Warehouse on December 2nd for the Emma Langford album launch. Emma launched her album ‘Quiet Giant’ in Dolans to a huge crowd of fans. Emma Langford’s 2017 Tour visited various towns around Ireland and abroad.
Emma Langford is a singer-songwriter from Limerick city. Her vocal style blends Irish lilt with folk and jazz, and her guitar work delicately complements an intuitive sense of melody; Langford has woven a sound which Phil Coulter describes as “a breath of fresh air”. Her wry and insightful penmanship combined with a cheerful stage-demeanor prove to create an engaging live presence.
Following the success of her self-titled EP in 2016 praised by Hotpress Magazine as “almost angelic”, Emma Langford returns with her debut album, ‘Quiet Giant’. The album showcases ten tracks, set against a stunning backdrop of strings, percussion and piano. The songs dance lightly between genres, weaving a coming-of-age narrative that explores love, heartbreak, and wrestling with self-doubt.
Ahead of Emma Langford’s 2017 tour kicking off Emma was delighted to be awarded Best Female at The Pure M Awards 2017 in August.
The young artist has supported internationally recognized artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Declan O’Rourke, Roisín O and Hermitage Green to name but a few.
In 2016 Emma successfully crowd-funded and launched her debut EP which was toured at sold-out dates across the country. The EP received national airtime on 2fm, RTÉ Radio1, LyricFM, and Newstalk.
Emma has just arrived home to Limerick after of traveling to Germany and Switzerland with the Irish Folk Festival this winter. Her debut album, Quiet Giant was released in October.
