It’s a beautiful day in the neighbourhood here in Toronto, with a brisk touch of excitement in the air. Bees are buzzing, acorns are falling and squirrels are squirreling. Across town at singer/songwriter Emilia’s house, the excitement is downright electrifying. Her voice comes over the phone as bright, pumped up and studded with the laughter of a 22 year old in love with her life. Emilia has every reason to be excited, given her recent career trajectory.

F’r instance, a recent flashpoint was the placing of "Young And In Love", a song from debut album "E" as part of the soundtrack for the upcoming feature film "After The Ball" starring Chris Noth (The Good Wife, Sex In The City, Law And Order), Portia Doubleday (Carrie), and Lauren Holly (Dumb and Dumber, Motive, NCIS).

“It was amazing to hear that, a total surprise as there was no forewarning. Up until I got the email, I had no idea anything like that was up. Then when I saw the movie, it was just awesome, totally exciting and so interesting to see how they used the song.”

She’s still humbly overjoyed at the critical reception given her debut album ‘E’, even before its official release, which comes Sept. 16. Tipsters across the spectrum are wowed by the range and fluidity of Emilia’s vocals as well as the song writing chops. Stylistically, the material genre hops subtly within vaguely defined pop, nu-dance and jazz boundaries. That she pulls it all off is another high-bar mark. Currently just a few credits off a Fine Arts degree with a major in music from York U., Emilia credits the formal training with her highly honed songwriting.
