Meet the members of Spare Pages: Azure Antoinette & Emily Rex.
Newcastle’s Emily Rex had hardly landed in LA beginning her US adventures when she announced a collaboration with Azure Antoinette as Spare Pages. Azure Antoinette – a performance poet with an avid love of poignant lyrics and rich vocals and Emily Rex – an Australian nightingale that grew from Polynesian heritage with a rampant passion for R&B, jazz, and soul music genres. Together, they have harnessed a new space for their sound; if you have a love for haunting lyrics, honest vocal talent – then Spare Pages is devoutly for you.
Called the “Maya Angelou of the Millenials,” Antoinette was included in Forbes’ “100 Most Powerful Women in the World” issue and recently emceed for Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way: Emotion Revolution” college tour.
Meanwhile, Rex was a finalist in the Australian version of “The Voice” with coach will.i.am (The Black Eyed Peas) and says, “My dream is to move people through my music and put a smile on people’s faces.”
As Spare Pages, Azure and Emily submitted their debut album “First, Listen” for Grammy nomination contention last year.
