Interview with Emma Langford

2018-01-07

Emma Langford is a singer-songwriter from Limerick. 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”.

The artist’s wry and insightful penmanship combined with a cheerful stage-demeanour prove to create an engaging live presence. She has shared a stage with internationally recognised artists such as Ron Sexsmith, Eddi Reader, 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 airtime on 2fm, RTÉ Radio1, LyricFM, and Newstalk.

She recently completed her first solo Irish tour in September, ahead of a month-long tour of Germany and Switzerland with the Irish Folk Festival this winter. Her debut album “Quiet Giant” described by Today Fm’s Ed Smith as “absolutely stunning” is due for official release on the 18th October.

Langford was named “Best Solo Female Artist” for 2017 by Pure M Magazine, and was listed as Hot Press Magazine’s one-to-watch in the summer of 2016.
