- Emily Wells
- by Doug Levy
- One-woman band emily Wells marries classical composition to hip-hop and jazz, using her loop pedal to cement the union.
Wells has released two albums to date, but gained the most notoriety for her loving interpretation of Biggie Smalls’ “Juicy,” featured on her new EP Dirty. Live, Wells recreates her elaborately layered studio constructions by playing and looping herself on multiple violin, keyboard, and vocal tracks, constructing full, lush symphonies from just a handful of materials.
extremely nice stuff. i really like the sonority and her approach to production. recently i have been listening to electro accustic music and emily has it all. well worth spend some time with her on your headphones.
