Her debut album Sonho ("Dream" in Portuguese) earned rave reviews from national jazz critics and reached #23 on the CMJ Jazz chart. Emy is currently studying vocal jazz performance at the California Jazz Conservatory and is working on the release of her second album called Love Fool, an eclectic collection of modern jazz and Brazilian arrangements of 80s/90s pop hits.
