Big, bad beauty from Boise, Idaho, Emily Braden has the innate ability to win the heart of any audience with her powerhouse vocals and striking stage presence. Winner of New York City’s  prestigious "Best of the Best" Jazzmobile Vocal Competition, her signature sound is an effortless blend of jazz and soul.  As a resident of Harlem and a celebrated name on the NYC’s jazz scene for over a decade,  Braden has graced the iconic stages of NYC’s Blue Note Jazz Club, Birdland Jazz Club and  Minton’s Playhouse as well as international festival circuits. She could be seen at her monthly  residency at the famed 55 Bar in Greenwich Village until its recent shuttering. Braden has  twice represented the US arts community abroad with the US Embassy’s Arts Envoy Program.  Her formal studies include a two year vocal jazz program in Gresham, Oregon under the guidance of big band arranger Dave Barduhn and an intensive private mentorship with eminent  pianist and vocalist Louise Rose in Victoria, British Columbia. While in Victoria, she received her  Bachelors and Masters degree in Latin American Studies from the University of Victoria, graduating with honors.  Braden’s debut album Soul Walk and upcoming sophomore album Cannon & Sparrow were  written and recorded with producer and musical partner of over 15 years, Misha Piatigorsky.  Piatigorsky says, “As a singer, Emily has no boundaries. She gives me goosebumps.” The catalyst  for Cannon & Sparrow was the passing of her father within a week of the 2016 presidential  election. Songwriter and lyricist Braden says “This album was a huge part of my healing  process. The songs were pieced together from dreams, journals and voice memos over time.  What I thought was a project about personal and collective grief revealed itself to be an  offering of joy and resilience.”  Current side projects include “Big Diva Energy,” a collaboration with superstar TV contestants  Sarah Potenza and Katie Kadan of The Voice, and appearances with underground speakeasy  Daddy Rabbit, as featured in NYC TimeOut and the NYTimes.  Her sophomore album Cannon & Sparrow was released on all platforms on March 17th, 2023.
