Emma and the Noise have recently released their first demo.



Emma & The Noise are a tight new groove-soul quartet based out of Montreal. Formed in the fall of 2007, the Noise set out to remind music lovers that soul never died, that a spontaneously elegant groove can still bring a house down, that a sultry voice with something to say still matters— nothing but. With roots digging into the sophisticated irreverence of Sly and the Family Stone, Nina Simone’s message laden blues, the introspective creations of Herbie Hancock, and having been born and raised into a culture suffused with the hip-hop aesthetic, the Noise cook up music that is both emotive and reflective. Embracing the idea that to be taught by one’s elders and to express oneself are inseparably parts of a single broader concept, the Noise climb between the cracks, trying to discover where it is that the sidewalk ends, and to lay a few more feet for others to walk on.

An intoxicating brew, the Noise’ straight up, get down line up leaves nothing left wanting. Featuring the simmering moods of pianist Samito Matsinhe, the fearless vibrations of bassist Matt Powell, the fat-bottomed beats of drummer Maxwell Bernstein, and, let’s not forget, of course, that voice made of honey, Emma Frank, Emma & the Noise are sure to inspire a curiosity and good feeling in every listener.
