Emma 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; Langford has woven a sound which Phil Coulter describes as “a breath of fresh air”. Her wry and insightful penmanship combined with a cheerful stage-demeanour prove to create an engaging live presence.
The young artist has supported internationally recognised artists such as Ron Sexsmith, 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 national airtime on 2fm, RTÉ Radio1, LyricFM, and Newstalk.
She has just embarked on her solo Irish tour ahead of traveling to Germany and Switzerland with the Irish Folk Festival this winter. Her debut album, Quiet Giant, is due for release in October.

Reviews for Emma Langford
“A breath of fresh air… Very easy on the ear.”
- Phil Coulter
"...there's an almost angelic quality to her material."
- Roisin Dwyer, Commissioning Editor, Hotpress Magazine
"...a songwriter of great depth and personal soul searching and a voice to match - a voice that exudes maturity beyond her years and yet implies a vulnerability and innocence."
- Carl Corcoran, Presenter, The Blue of the Night, RTÉ lyric fm
"Langford’s voice is sublime and effortlessly mesmerising as she moves through her repertoire... it's not only the music that is enticing but also the repartee, as Langford proves to be an engaging raconteur."
- John Loftus, Presenter, Sounds From a Green World, 8Radio
"...we all fell in love with her. Her voice is strong yet sweet and her stage presence is wonderfully vulnerable."
