Musician Emma Pears to Perform at the Albergo Villa Cassanova , Lucca Albergo Villa Casanova set in 360 acres of mixed woodland is located just ten minutes from Lucca, Italy is a distinctive and relaxed, luxury boutique hotel with 14 incredibly spacious suites, restaurant, magnificent terraces, infinity swimming pool and tennis court. The Albergo Villa Casanova presents as part of their summer events performances by Musician Emma Pears. Emma’s classical grounding, academic background and vast musical experience have undoubtedly helped her to be able to compose across a wide range of genres, including Pop, Rock, R’n’B, Soul, Jazz and more recently branching out into music for TV and commercials. Emma who is managed by Paul Loasby (who also manages Jools Holland and David Gilmour of Pink Floyd) writes for established and emerging artists at major recording labels Universal, Warner, EMI. As a performer think Jamie Cullum meets Norah Jones at a Michael Buble party! Whilst Emma is an established songwriter, her debut release as a solo artist had been a long time coming. “One day I was in a meeting up at Sony discussing potential songs for use with one of their artists. I played a bunch of tracks on CD and then sat and played some more on the piano. As soon as I stopped playing, the label manager asked why I wasn’t positioning myself as an artist? This really got me thinking and set me on the road of making my own record.” Emma soon teamed up with Norwegian producer / arranger Aril Schoeld and the ensuing months were spent traveling between London and the beautiful city of Stavanger on the west coast of Norway, bringing the songs to life. With Jools Holland kindly lending his private studio, Emma gathered together a bunch of friends (who happen to be great musicians!) and camped out for several days laying down the basis of the record. The result is ‘Glimmr’ a fantastic collection of songs about life, love and loss. We’re not sure exactly what it is but the concoction of great musicians playing live combined with beautiful, hooky melodies, stunning orchestrations and crafted lyrics mean this record is something special. Beginning the 17th of July for one week only, the Albergo Villa Casanova hosts and presents the talented Emma Pears along with her equally talented husband Nik Pears. Guests will be entertained on one of the properties terraces while enjoying aperitifs.
