Emily Wells

Emily Wells - Words and Music - 2012

by Alisa Ali

Though frequently described as a cross between classical and hip hop, the music of sonic-folk wild child Emily Wells, is less clashing and more strange than that—blending the DIY loops of tUnE-yArDs with the dark, quirky imagery of Jesca Hoop, and occasionally a tiny hint of Cocteau Twins (if there was only one of them). Emily's third album, Mama, is out now, and she set up her one-woman shop in Studio A to give us a taste.
