"Prize winner"

2008 winner - GILLES PETERSON WORLDWIDE TALENT SEARCH FESTIVAL 2008


"Prize winner"

European Musical Press' choice - ADAMI / DEEZER DE TALENTS / EUROPAVOX, FR, 2010


"Album Review"

«Beware: talented artist! Emilie Chick is a young woman from the South of France who navigates between different musical genres without ever getting lost. A good dose of soul, electro accents here and there, and a big hip hop influence, this Chick is a girl in synch with her time. She knows how to do everything and does it well. This Is Emilie Chick Speaking, and when she does, we listen and ask for more.» - Qobuzz - March 2010


"Prize nomination"

2 Nominations “Best International Artist” & “Best Urban Song” - Exposure Music Awards 2009 (March 2010)


"Writer Feature"

Of rare subtlety, Emilie Chick's electro trip-hop will also please fans of feminine jazzy voices. In an embroidered setting of piano, keyboards and sample machines, the lady's tone oscillates between a typical atmosphere and old-school swing.
We are in a contemporraneous lounge bar where some sort of sensual and silky voice glides over a groovy bass that humanizes this urban electro music.
Classy and current. A candy cane. Simply chic. - Fanzyo - Dec 2011/Jan 2012


"Deezer/Europavox/Adami Prize"

- - Musique Info - April 2010


"Album Review"

«Remember : we had offered you a free download on our digital sampler a couple of months ago of a very good deep-house remix by Charles Webster of the French-American singer Emilie Chick. Winner of Gilles Peterson's dear Worldwide Festival Talent Search in 2008, she is back with her first album. ...Which only confirms the talent and the soul-house-rare groove orientation of this first opus. (…).» - Tsugi - May 2010


"Interview"

"Single Review - Collaboration"

The collaboration with Emily Chick is nothing short of a dancefloor hit, a pure gold nugget infused with funky beats over which Emilie's subtly powerful voice progressively takes off to build into an infectious melody that echoes to one's folly when dancing the night away, which is the exact story of "Red Shoes" - DJ Mag Italia - Sept 2011


"Album review"

«Between pop and soul, the musical world of this singer from Montpellier is colored with deep house thanks to the too rare Charles Webster. A beautiful discovery.» - Tsugi (digital sampler) Dec 2009


"Album review"

«The French-American releases a debut album like we unfortunately do not get to hear often in France. Navigating freely between electro-funk, acid-jazz, R ‘n B and hip-hop, Emilie Chick defies the traditions and habits of each genre. (…) Gilles Peterson (…) loved what she does so much that he sacred her one of the revelations of his Worldwide festival in Sète.» - Vibrations, Dec '09/Jan '10

Bio

Emilie Chick is a French-American songstress defining her style through numerous musical experiences.

She grew up between North America and France and joined her first band (Bossa Nova) at 17 by curiosity and has never stopped since.

In barely a couple of years she made fierce progress moving from classic Rythm n’Blues covers in piano-bars in the south of France to Los Angeles where she performed with an experimental Funk band (Inhaler).

Back in France she began various projects including a House improv act in clubs all over France and met famous French DJ Antoine Clamaran who featured her on his first album (“Release Yourself”, Sing a Song 2002).

In 2003 she teamed up with a London based Electro Hip-Hop DJ collective (Dapond) to record and perform (Cargo, Harry’s Social Club) and learned heaps about production and programming.

In 2005, Emilie recorded “Bag U Should” with Quizz (Dialect Recordings, remixed by Charles Webtser, L’Aroye & Ky, playlisted on Radio Nova and many others).

A new collaboration with Antoine Clamaran set his single “Keep on Trying” (2006) as a big hit in clubs around the world.

2008 saw her win Gilles Peterson’s Worlwide Festival Talent Search and work with Charles Webtser and Atjazz (aka Version); their first single featuring on “’Defected presents Charles Webster” compilation (April 2008) is called “The Brighter Side”.

With 2010 comes the release of her first solo album, "This Is Emily Chick Speaking", voted “Best Album” by Europavox / Deezer / Adami’s panel of European Journalists, followed by two EPs of remixes by famous DJs and electro artists.

In-between recording sessions for her second album, due in 2012, she plays with her band in venues all across France and prepares a weekly radio show "One Two This Is A Test" on her SoundCloud showcasing her latest musical crushes.
