Emily Wells: Badass Female Award Recipient

LA’s renegade symphonist, Emily Wells, will self release her folk electric fantasy set The Symphonies: Dreams Memories and Parties on October 21st. Part haunting and part enticing, Wells creates and draws listeners in with an uncanny beauty, which in the name of “creative control”, she’s learned to produce and record herself. If I forced myself to write up a helpful description (and I am), I’d pen her as kind of a mix of Ani DiFranco, Bjork and a handful of sharp, nomadic, modern poets. Plus, she’s opened for Lykke Li, so she gets serious bonus points for that.
