Emilia Sisco & Helge Tallqvist Band on maailmanluokan solistin, Emilia Siscon kanssa noussut lyhyessä ajassa bluesin, soulin ja funkyn genressä kaikkien tietoisuuteen, ei vain kotimaassa mutta myös Euroopassa ja USA:ssa. Bändi on kotimaan festivaalien lisäksi esiintynyt Skandinaviassa ja Euroopassa. Äitinsä puolelta Emilialla on Zambia tausta ja sitä kautta afrikkalainen rytmi virtaa suonissa. Mikä helposti kuultavissa. Bändissä yhdistyy nuori ennakkoluulottomuus ja raikkaus sekä kokemuksen mukana tuoma osaaminen ja vakuuttavuus. Ohjelmisto muodostuu bluesista, R&B:stä, soulista , funkystä ja ripauksesta jazzia. Rytmi- ja tanssimusiikkia parhaimmillaan.

Emilian vahva ja sielukas soundi yhdistettynä valloittavaan persoonaan ja vakuuttavaan lavaesiintymiseen tekee Emiliasta valovoimaisen keulahahmon bändissä.

Kitarassa on Konstantin Kovalev. “Konsta” on myös Emilian tavoin lyönyt itsensä nuoresta iästään huolimatta läpi roots musiikin maailmassa. Bassossa monista yhteyksistä tunnettu Tom Nyman, kuten rumpali Jupe Litmanen. Minun, Helge Tallqvist huuli harpistina on helppo kellua näiden huippu muusikoiden luomien rytmien päällä.
