Emily Steinwall in an emerging tenor saxophone player, flautist and bandleader based in Toronto, Canada. She has a deep respect and connection to the jazz tradition while still maintaining a fresh approach to improvising and composing. Emily performs frequently in Toronto as a leader with her group Bloom, and as a side-musician with a number of diverse groups including: Mason Victoria’s Sonuskapos Jazz Orchestra, Tom Upjohn’s We Are All, and the Funny Funk Band.
At 22 years old, Emily was named one of CBC's "35 best Canadian jazz artists under 35" :
"Steinwall has taken her love for the saxophone a long way in a short time, and has a pure, lyrical tone on the instrument. Her collaborative project Bloom is a quartet featuring fellow graduates of the Humber College program, and it derives influences from many styles of music including folk and classical. It is contemporary, ethereal, gorgeous music with influences from leaders like Mark Turner, Seamus Blake and Kurt Rosenwinkel."
