Emily Wells Live in Studio - MAY 7th AT 3!

Emily Wells - live on WCBN at 3pm on Tuesday May 7th Emily plays tomorrow night at the Magic Stick.  Emily will showcase a mix of her acoustic, electric, and overall eclectic catalog today on WCBN.  

Emily Wells has been hailed for her multi-instrumental ambidexterity, a symphonic embroidering of swirling strings, ingenious electronics, and intricate, irresistible beats, sewn together with celestial vocals and deeply personal song-craft. Her new Mama Acoustic Recordings, out June 11th, sees the NYC-based singer/musician/producer casting it all aside, re-imagining songs first heard on 2012’s acclaimed Partisan Records debut, Mama . Where that collection was marked by Wells‘ extraordinary fusion of hip hop, experimental dance music, lyrical introspection, and classical complexity, the new album is stunningly austere, recorded solely with voice and guitar.
