Emilie Mover was born in Montreal on a snowy November evening. She grew up in Toronto until moving to New York City in her teen years, where she began singing jazz with her father, Bob Mover, a renowned saxophone player familiar to jazz clubs on either side of the 49th parallel and overseas. Emilie has been singing in that scene professionally for half of her life.
She started accompanying herself on the nylon string guitar around 16, after some classical guitar lessons, playing simple versions of standards and developing her songwriting skills. Soon, she began writing her own compositions and has been doing so ever since.
With the songs that comprise her diverse and delicate catalogue, her inherently simplistic and authentic approach to playing and writing is delicate, endearing, and echoes a depth of understanding of the great American songbook well beyond her years.
Mover has already had songs synced by giants like Fisher Price, Dodge, and BlackBerry, as well as prominent placements in trend-making television shows like Grey’s Anatomy, Pretty Little Liars, and Girls.
She has recorded 4 studio albums (including a tribute album to jazz legend Peggy Lee), as well as received a Juno in 2013 for her musical collaboration with hit children’s show Stella and Sam.
She most recently just completed recording her fifth studio album, Night Owl, which has a planned release of Spring 2016.
