What people are saying about Emmy The Great

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Emmy in Brighton A wonderful unpretentious gig, filled with originality, great musicality and even full-on crowd participation as witnessed in Leonard Cohens "Anthem". This was the first time I had seen ETG live and it was a memorable evening, doing full justice to Emmy`s back catalogue of studio work. Each band member gave terrific laid back performances contributing to the overall ambience of the evening. An ad-libbed encore aided by the crowd summed up a hugely enjoyable evening. Come back soon Emmy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Emmy was Great My daughter saw Emmy 7 years ago and said how good she was, but perhaps a little nervous with the audience - now that has all changed. Well not all.. she is still GREAT but is also now a master of the audience - dealing with creeps and drunks like a pro, but more importantly being herself and letting us in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very confident and enjoyable performance Emma performed 17 songs in a set lasting almost 80 minutes; she was supported by guitar, guitar/ keyboard and drums; she played guitar on several numbers and occasionally keyboard. I had seen Emma perform twice before. In October 2011 I found her singing live surprisingly loud and, at times, almost aggressive and her demeanour was detached, almost severe; she also showed very little engagement with the audience, though when she did, she became warm, smiling, amusing and relaxed. In January 2015 she performed against a bizarre backdrop, projecting a double image of herself in Chinese-looking dress and her hair in two plaits making gestures with her hands, which she then sometimes mimicked as she sang! She was rather statuesque at times and the concert never really came alive: she seemed maybe a little anxious that the new songs received a lukewarm reception. How impressively different she was in this wonderful concert! She performed with great poise, self-possession and confidence, and she was natural and at ease with both herself and the audience. She sang beautifully throughout and engaged with the audience between almost every other song with great wit, warmth and charm. Before she sang her first song The Hypnotist's Son, beautifully and unaccompanied, she made a joke of the problems she was having with the tangled guitar lead, commenting “Hi. I have an issue. I’m in a muddle.” After her second song Dinosaur Sex, for which her band joined her, she announced, “Thanks so much for coming out to see me on a Sunday. Won’t you all come a bit closer? I want to touch you.” And the audience all moved forward. She provided a long introduction to her fourth song Social Halo, commenting at length about Soho in Hong Kong, the legacy of Lord Elgin who destroyed thousands of priceless buildings, the temples where tourists take selfies but warning that their appeal to the gods might be “a shady business” as these gods are not particularly benevolent . She then sang much of the song in Chinese! After her fifth song Algorithm she again thanked the audience so much for coming out and listening to all her new songs. She also gave her eighth song Phoenixes a long introduction, speculating whether River Phoenix had an i-Phone or a Mac, then explaining that she had used her Mac to send letters to a pen pal she acquired from a Donald Duck magazine. She added that she had also been a member of the Orkneys Seal Preservation and sent them hair from her pony … and they always replied! She then commented on her love for the magazine Bliss, saying “I found it ... enticing! I’ve thought about all of this a lot. And you will now too!” Before singing her twelfth song First Love she explained how important Manchester is to her, having written and edited her first album there, and she talked about how her landlady made her very comfortable. She also commented on the Manchester derby held earlier that day: “Some of you here are in pain, some are really happy.” In some respects First Love was the outstanding song of the evening, with an amazingly loud, very exciting and wildly accelerated climax, after which she introduced her band and support staff and got the audience to sing Happy Birthday for Duncan! Before singing her first encore Canopies & Drapes she dealt impressively with a tricky situation when a member of the audience asked her to deal with some girls who kept talking and replied, “I think you just did!” She then added she could mediate afterwards. The situation was sensibly and sensitively defused. This was a wonderful, assured and engaging performance.
