Emmelie Zipson is an actress and singer on stage, in cinema and on television. She also writes and plays her own performances, which are combinations of musical theatre and cabaret. So far she has made four solo performances. Together with pianist and orchestrator Albert Klein Goldewijk and varying musicians, she performs throughout Holland in theatres and on festivals. To complete her shows she records her music on CD. Her last one, Bloed Link, is a personal quest for her Russian-Jewish roots. The album has Dutch and international influences and she sings her own songs and covers in Dutch, English, Russian and Yiddish.
Emmelie is a true storyteller and preferably tells her stories with humour and charm in diverse languages. Her voice is clear, warm and enthusiastic, with a noticeable smile. After years of training in both speaking and singing, she knows how to use her voice in a versatile way. It’s one of the reasons she trained herself as a host and speaker as well. She happily hosts a corporate event or act as a panel chairman. Due to her bilingual background she smoothly swifts from proper English to civilised Dutch, and back!
“Zipson is just marvellously wonderful.” (Het Parool)
“Whatever she sings feels right, her voice is on the spot. An impressive voice speaking nothing but the truth.” (Cultuurbewust.nl)
“My first thought: what a pleasant appearance. My second: she is a Jack of all Trades. Emmelie Zipson is a woman of extremes: she combines a beautiful sound with a great sense of overstatement and absurdism.” (Het Parool)
