Emma Johnson’s Gravy Boat is a contemporary jazz quintet led by Leeds based saxophonist and composer Emma Johnson. The group performs melodic, cinematic jazz that evokes strong imagery and demonstrate a “strong and joyful bond, immediately apparent in their sound”.
Gravy Boat features brilliant Northern musicians, Fergus Vickers (Guitar), Richard Jones (Piano), Angus Milne (Double Bass) and Steve Hanley (Drums) with Emma Johnson finishing the lineup on tenor saxophone. Their recent single ‘Where Were You Hiding?’ with guest vocals from Manchester’s Nishla Smith gained an editorial playlist place on Spotify and was called an ‘effortless slice of contemporary jazz.’
Their new album ‘Worry Not’ tackles themes of stress and worry and the process of overcoming those things to find a sense of calm. The imagery uses a lake setting as a parallel to the coming and going of these emotions and the whole album is a cathartic listening experience, inspired by a place where Emma is at her most worry-free.
Worry Not is the band’s debut album, produced with thanks to Help Musicians UK and the Peter Whittingham Award, and the group look forward to sharing some of this new music on their return to The Globe.
