Singer songwriter Portia Emare was born in Manchester, via Ireland, Nigeria and the planet Vintage Soul Glamour!
Portia’s career has taken her all around the world. She made her professional debut at the age of 7, and has performed in some unlikely places; in hot air balloons as well as on the Great Wall of China. From the deserts of the Middle East to underground Soho clubs, on high wires in West End theatres and secret beaches on the island of Ibiza or simply serenading the glitterati in the infamous jazz haunts of New York City, Portia is an old soul in a 25 year old body.
When Portia isn’t busy being a part of the cast of West End hits like ‘Pricilla Queen of the Desert’ or working on her own fabulous project ‘Poem’, we IT Girls have the pleasure of this young ladies smooth vocal, cheekily joyous vibe and her ability to soar and roar.
A head turning lady for not only her vocals but her style too, a wardrobe of strictly vintage finery, nurtured by a Mother with a flair for the über-cool, Portia grooves, rocks, bops and beats, and she does it all, decked in Vivienne Westwood couture.
