Emma Langford launches debut album Quiet Giant at Dolan’s Warehouse.
Award-winning artist Emma Langford performed at Dolan’s Warehouse on December 2nd for the launch of her debut album, Quiet Giant.
Following the huge success of her 2016 self-titled and crowd-funded EP 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 her 2017 tour kicking off, Emma was delighted to be awarded Best Female at The Pure M Awards 2017 in August.
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; she 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.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.
Emma has just arrived home to Limerick after travelling to Germany and Switzerland with the Irish Folk Festival this winter. Her debut album, Quiet Giant was released in October.
