Emily Reynolds' swinging jazz chord chops are evident in the swing and Gypsy jazz genres where rhythm is central to the music. Up and down the neck of the guitar, she sets a strong rhythmic tone. Her powerhouse vocals are featured in Espresso!, with tunes in both English and French. Band manager for Espresso!, Emily also plays with the Swing Chicks, a Colorado-based swing band and sings three-part 40s tunes with the TriTones in Seattle.
