Last week Emilia Mårtensson was thrilled to win Vocalist of the Year 2016 at the APPJAG Parliamentary Jazz Awards. In a glitzy reception at the Houses of Parliament, Emilia was presented the award by singer and BBC Radio presenter, Claire Martin and editor of Jazzwise magazine, Jon Newey who commented; “This has been a really strong year for the Parliamentary Jazz Awards in terms of talent and nominations. The well deserved winners are a veritable who’s who of names that have made a real impact on the music and helped make the UK one of the world’s leading jazz territories.”

‘It is a great honour to receive this award and to get recognised amongst all the amazing talent current on the UK Jazz Scene. I am proud to be part of such a wonderful community and a music scene which is constantly evolving and exploring new directions in the approach to jazz and improvising.  I am extremely lucky to have the honour of collaborating with so many wonderful musicians and artists and I am over the moon that it has led to receiving this lovely award!’-Emilia
