From the start of her career, Wells' musical interests were simply too wide ranging for just one instrument. Trained as a classical violinist, the Texan soon created her own sonic "spaceship," an ever-growing pulsating arsenal of synthesizers, effects pedals and toy instruments, all tied together with live sampling and a genre-agnostic approach that is diverse, distinctive, and utterly her own. Honing her sound on a series of independent releases, including an acclaimed cover of The Notorious B.I.G.'s classic 'Juicy', it was these initial glimpses and the countless live dates both as bandleader and solo performer that carved out the musician she has become today.
Emily Wells is an artist whose innate complexities lift her out of that particular stable and into a realm all of her own, and with a live show that is diverse, distinctive, and utterly her own, it's a performance not to be missed.
