Captivating, luminous and convincing. These words have been used when describing Emilia Sisco. When Emilia sings, we're transported back in time to the Motown era.
Emilia Sisco is a jazz-soul-blues singer from Helsinki, Finland. In her music she combines American jazz traditions, as well as modern arrangements of soul-music.
Emilia's strong, personal vocal and tone strikes directly into the soul and makes you move. She creates a natural swing with her instinctive phrasing.
When Sisco forgets everything else and lets herself go, she shows the world of entertainment what girls are really made of.
The passion for singing for this self-taught singer came from her childhood home where music was always present.
Born in Finland 1991 with Zambian roots from her mothers side, the little girl started to interpret the songs she heard and found love towards jazz music. Through that, she got into different genres of roots music and performed for the first time in publicity at the age of 15.
Sisco is performing with various groups all over Finland and Europe. She has been a guest at Ruf Records Blues Caravan and was chosen as the 'Newcomer of the Year' 2017 at the Finnish Blues Awards.
With countless feature and backing vocal experience, she has sang backing vocals and collaborated for international artists. She has also appeared and performed in Finnish movies 'Romanssi' (Romance) and international Finnish film 'Ikitie' (The Eternal Road).
In the Spring of 2018 she released her debut album with Helge Tallqvist Band, 'You ain't Heard'. She is collaborating with Timmion Records, where she released a vinyl single "Don't Believe You Like That" on February 2019 .
Retrosoulia ja bluesia syvällä tunteella ja äänellä laulava Emilia Sisco on ehditty noteerata etenkin viime vuosina monella saralla. Hänet valittiin Finnish Blues Awardseissa vuoden tulokkaaksi 2017, ja kehuttu debyyttilevy You Ain’t Heard ilmestyi vuotta myöhemmin. Tämä on vienyt Emilia Siscon bändeineen myös esiintymään ympäri Eurooppaa.
Musiikillisesti Emilia Sisco yhdistelee amerikkalaista jazz-perinnettä, moderneja sovituksia sekä retrosoulia. Uusimmalla sinkullaan “Don’t Believe You Like That” yhteistyötä on tehty maineikkaan Cold Diamond & Minkin kanssa, ja se tuli ulos arvostetun Timmion Recordsin kautta.
