With this common love for music, we became very good friends. At that time, Emilie was already fond of Jazz and improvisation. I encouraged her to pursue her dreams and to go to New York where she could meet with the best musicians.
After years of hard work (she studied with Gretchen Parlato and Ralph Alessi among others) and with her rare talent and original style, she is now making a name in the Jazz community of New York.
An experimental sound full of beauty.
Emilie Weibel ( http://www.emilieweibel.com/Listen-1 ) was recently praised in the New York Village Voice as "one of the shining lights leading Brooklyn's contingent of heavenly voices." (http://www.villagevoice.com/2013-04-03/voice-choices/emilie-weibel/full/)
Her show at Cornelia Street Cafe April 10th made it for the Ten Best Concert of the Week in the Village Voice ( the reference for the cultural events in New York)
She is actually preparing her first album with her solo voice project oMoO. A work where she sings with a looper, a sampler and a music box and inspired by Herman Melville. Pretty original! Most of the tunes will be recorded in her room in Brooklyn and hearing the last news, Grammy Award Dave Darlington will be in the crew for the mixing and mastering.
