MEMO’S Q & A ‘3’ feat. EMMA PASK
1. What can the audience expect from your upcoming show at MEMO Music Hall?
I’m really looking forward to Memo Music Hall. It will be my first time playing there, and I can’t wait to hit the stage with my friend and wonderful pianist Matt McMahon. Together we’ll be diving into the great American songbook and working our way through some swinging standards, upbeat Latin Tunes and no doubt throwing in a blues song or two, of course!
2. You have been charming audiences both nationally and internationally over the years with your fabulous voice. What has been your most memorable experience so far in your career?
I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have so many wonderful career opportunities so far. I get to play with the most amazing musicians and share the stage with them. So many highlights .. my most recent tour last month, opening for Kurt Elling around Australia, was absolutely amazing! What an experience. Being asked up to join him on stage to sing was too much fun!
3. What’s next for Emma Pask?
The latter half of 2018 has me working all around Australia with a busy Christmas gig season coming up. I’m trying to fit in recording a new Album with my trio. January 2019 I’m heading off to play at the Havana International Jazz Festival in Cuba. I simply can’t wait for this gig! There’s an opportunity for anyone to come along and join us too. Cuban Cultural Travel have put together an exclusive tour package for people to join us! Check out www.emmapask.com for more info.
