bio
Hanging on Emy Kaboré’s every word is the easiest thing in the world. Though barely twenty, the Paris native with African roots is already considered one of the greatest musical talents we have. Her uniquely identifiable soul voice expresses her most intimate thoughts and feelings. She moves and dazzles the listener, leaving no one untouched.

What’s more, Emy is self-taught. It all started in the summer of 2015 when she bought her very first guitar and started making music, purely on intuition. Her emotional, poignant songs earned her third place in the 2018 edition of Humo’s Rock Rally (‘At just eighteen, Emy’s voice conveys more feeling, life and urgency than the last eight Hooverphonic singers put together’).

Her maiden EP ‘Weary Purple’ was also very well received. The track ‘Unfinished’ was picked up by Radio 1 and has racked up 250,000 listens on Spotify.

This early success cemented Emy’s resolve to continue her solo career in earnest with a full backing band. Four wonderful musicians accompany her as she explores the neo soul genre, adding a groovy and funky feel to her repertoire and complementing her naturally soulful voice.

Meanwhile they’ve earned their spurs in a live setting as well, including a support slot as openers for Kokoroko in a sold-out Roma, in the Rotonde hall of the Botanique and at the Boomtown Festival in Ghent.

The world is Emy’s oyster, with millions of hearts just waiting to be warmed and conquered.
