Emma Hatton is one of the leading ladies of West End theatre, appearing in some of London’s most popular musicals, including Evita (Eva Peron), Cats (Grizabella) & Les Mis (Fantine). However, in addition to collecting awards for her acting work she is also becoming increasingly recognised as an impressive jazz and blues singer, with appearances at premier venues including Ronnie Scott’s and the Pizza Express. In 2015, Emma recorded her first EP with Anthony Strong entitled “Merry Christmas, Darling” and both this and her most recent Vinyl EP, “Thirty Three and a Third”, shot straight to Number 1 on the iTunes jazz charts. She has also toured internationally as lead vocalist with the world-famous Post Modern Jukebox, spent much of 2019 supporting Jools Holland and recently sold out her first Cheltenham Jazz Festival show. We are delighted to welcome her to the 606 tonight, where she’ll be performing ‘a stripped-down evening of mellow jazz and soul, paying tribute to the artists and composers who have inspired me, including Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughan, George Gershwin and Cole Porter”. Emma will be accompanied by two of the most renowned musicians of studio and stage, pianist John G Smith (Michael Bublé, Elaine Page) and bassist Don Richardson (Katherine Jenkins, Michael Ball). Highly recommended.
''A pint-sized powerhouse. She has grit, she has growl and her voice has the most amazing dynamics... she has that ability to send a genuine shiver down your spine.” Headliner Magazine; “Her voice has an extraordinary range…liquid loveliness” The Independent; “Hatton sings up a storm” Radio Times
