Ive got the world on a string
Wild is love

Emma Pask was born in Sydney in 1977. At the age of 14, she started singing jazz with her high school band. In 1994 James Morrison visited the school and heard Emma sing. He was so impressed by her voice that, he invited her to sing with his Quartet at a concert that night As a result, Emma, who was still only 16, became the vocalist with the James Morrison Quartet and Big Band. In the four years since, Emma has toured nationally with both bands, including highlights such a 1995 liverecording with the big band, and Don Burrows, at the Sydney Opera House, performing for former Prime Minister Mr Paul Keating in 1996, and featuring, in 1997, on her second recording with James Morrison entitled "Quartet".

1998 has seen her become a regular face on many national TV Shows including Hey, Hey It's Saturday, The Midday Show, Good Morning Australia and The Today Show, whilst at the same time continuing a hectic touring schedule of live performances.

Her most recent recording is "EMMA" her debut solo album, released September 1999. In the new millennium, Emma has performed with Don Burrows & Ivor Davies in events celebrating Australia's national day.

Impressive as the above events are, no simple list of achievements can convey the experience that awaits the listener the first time they hear Emma sing. Perhaps the best we can say here, is to quote James Morrison in a recent interview, "Whilst it's fashionable to be a jazz singer these days, it's so good to work with someone who's the real thing!"
