Emma Johnson's Gravy Boat is an outlet for Emma's original compositions and aims to explore the different textures and possibilities that emerge from a small band of close knit musicians performing together. Emma's writing for the quartet in honest and accessible and displays a contemporary sound rooted by strong melodies. With strong hooks and catchy melodies augmented by improvised passages and intuitive ensemble playing, the Gravy Boat has something for everyone on board. The quartet recorded their first EP in 2016 and plan to tour and record further in the coming months.
