Emily Soon & Invictus Quartet



Australian-born, Malaysian Chinese singer-songwriter Emily Soon never fails to surprise first-time listeners.

Likened to Tracy Chapman, Norah Jones and Carole King, she is a young artist with an old soul. Her folk-pop songs are quietly powerful, highlighting her understated yet utterly disarming gift as a storyteller.
