    “Here is a pianist of rich promise.” Kevin Jones, Limelight Magazine.

    “Emma Grace Stephenson is making her mark on the Sydney jazz scene as a fine, creative and versatile pianist and singer. Her playing continues to go from strength to strength. Other musicians are quickly discovering and appreciating her impeccable sense of groove, her tasteful, creative improvising, and her interest in exploring music well outside the typical jazz mainstream.” Saul Richardson, principal at Jazz Workshop Australia.

    “Emma enchanted not only the staff and customers but drew in more customers into the store with her beautiful performance. Will have you back again…..Thank You so much for entertaining us.” Christina Woll, Das Nest Drummoyne
