"Emma Langford certainly knows how to weave magic and mystery through a tune... A beguiling, distinctive voice.” – Hot Press Magazine (2018)
Winner of an RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Award in 2018, Emma Langford first introduced herself to the Irish music scene two years prior with a simple home-made video recorded in her bedroom and posted to social media. Her song "Tug O' War" was a soulful account of anxiety and self-doubt, and struck a chord with hundreds of online fans, going on to be the closing track on her critically acclaimed first album.
Famed for razor-sharp wit and a voice that must be heard live to be believed, she was voted one of the top three female artists in the country in the 2019 Hot Press Readers' Choice Awards; and is nominated this year for Germany's esteemed Malzhaus Plauen Folk Music Prize.
The Irish Times described Emma Langford's debut album "Quiet Giant" as one that 'weaves a spell as you listen to it... An enduring piece of work'; the spell-binding Quiet Giant was set loose on the public in late 2017. In the following year, independent of any agent or record label support, the Limerick songwriter completed a whirlwind 100-date launch tour across Austria, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, the UK and Ireland.
Her hugely anticipated second album is currently in the works with Grammy nominated team The Production Suite, and so Emma Langford is sharing the magic of Quiet Giant in full with audiences one last time this year, with a limited number of Irish, German & UK tour dates.
Her debut US appearance takes place this August at the world-famous Milwaukee Irish Fest.
