EMMA LOU & THE AGENDA
Emma Lou and The Agenda, formed in late 2015, have quickly honed their jazz-infused, R’n’B flavoured brand of soul funk. Spear-headed by the titular Emma Lou, whose passionate yet measured vocals form an easy marriage with the supporting The Agenda with ample aplomb, the Dublin based five-piece echo with the classic vibes of Motown infused with an unearthed flare that mixes both funk and blues. The eponymous 2016 EP, ‘Emma Lou and The Agenda’ (NuMu Productions), featuring lead single ‘One Good Reason’, has seen the band’s unique, magnetic stylings showcased to live audiences with festival appearances throughout 2016 including Longitude & Electric Picnic coinciding with headlining sets in The Grand Social, Whelan's 'Ones To Watch' as well as an appearance on the Late Late Show. 2017 has seen the release of a second EP, recorded at Cauldron Studios with Michael Manning (Hozier, Lisa Hannigan, Laura Izibor), further presenting the band’s hungry soul and emerging, ever-developing sound to an eager audience.
