Emma-Jean Thackray has shared a new song “Rain Dance” and launched a new label Movementt. She is a composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, singer, bandleader and DJ. Emma was called “one of the UK’s most exciting new jazz artists” by Red Bull Music Academy.
She just released her first single “Rain Dance / Wisdom” from a new EP, which will be out 6th of March 2020 via her new label Movementt. “Movementt” is also the name of the closing track from that EP.
The song is based on her previous same-titled short track (only 42 seconds) from her latest EP “Ley Lanes”. Song evolved during live performances over time into seven minutes long composition blurring the lines between jazz, hip-hop, and psychedelia.
Emma-Jean Thackray explained, “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.”
