The secret of a rose
Dublin chanteuse is talking all that jazz
Edwin McFee, 17 May 2012
It’s safe to say that your enjoyment of Dublin-based crooner Emilie Conway’s debut album The Secret Of A Rose will hinge on whether or not you enjoy good old-fashioned jazz music. Unabashed in its affection for classic, cocktail anthems, the record features a collection of covers, old standards and a couple of her own compositions and it will appeal to anyone wanting to indulge their inner lounge lizard. Star of the show is Conway’s voice and while she handles the likes of ‘Undecided - Down With Love’ and ‘Devil May Care’ with ease, if you’re not a fan of the original versions then these renditions won’t win you over.
