Bob Hill Illicit Grooves
Emma-Jean Thackray can do no wrong in my book. Tracks on which she played and sang seemed to be constantly on the playlists of The Illicit Grooves Radio Show in 2019 and if this release is anything to go by then 2020 playlists will be featuring her music as well.
Composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, bandleader and DJ Emma-Jean Thackray is proud to announce her new EP ‘Rain Dance’, released via her brand new label ‘Movementt’.
The announcement comes with the release of the first single from the EP, the breathtaking ‘Rain Dance / Wisdom’, which sees Emma and her band switch transition between different moods and tempos before building to a blistering conclusion that blurs the lines between jazz and psychedelia.
On the track Emma says, “I reimagined the first half of the track from another beat (Rain Dance from the Ley Lines EP) and it’s completely live with my band. The track holds moments for each musician to shine and say something, and always goes down well live because it shows how well we improvise together. We always bring lots of energy, brave moments of stillness, and telepathic communication / awareness from being such a strong unit as a band.”
