As a performer, producer, singer, composer, and classically trained violinist, Emily Wells is known for her varied use of classical and modern instrumentation as well as her deft approach to live sampling. She has evolved into a uniquely modern singer and composer who uses a variety of instruments, from strings and drums to synths and beat machines, to create what NPR has praised as “gospel-folk music that’s immersed in secular desires and experiences” and the New York Times as “quietly transfixing.” Wells released her most recent studio album, Promise, to critical acclaim on her label Thesis & Instinct in January 2016; she will release a follow-up EP soon.
