about

With Omoo, Weibel has created a confection of sound, where the invention and accessibility of the best art-pop mixes with the improvisational fluidity of jazz. Born and bred in Lausanne, Switzerland, but now resident in Brooklyn, Weibel sings in English and French, with her expressive vocals atop loops, beats and soundscapes of her own devising. Along with her winsome originals, she interprets jazz great Wayne Shorter’s classic “Footprints,” adding her own lyrics to the infectious melody. Weibel also covers the lullaby-like “L' heure exquise” by early 20th-century Venezuelan-French songwriter Reynaldo Hahn, a favorite of Proust. Osby, contemporary saxophone star and director of Inner Circle Music, says about Weibel: “Emilie has successfully defined a new category for vocal performance art. With Omoo, she presents a world of color and possibilities, while simultaneously raising the bar for solo vocal sound-shaping and improvisation. Her music is amazing at once, and better still after successive listens. It’s impossible to not be moved.”
