We’ve been listening to Emily Wells non-stop over here at E+E. Wells, the “one-woman orchestral/electronic tour-de-force”, started playing violin when she was four years old. Four! What were you doing when you were four?Her music is not exactly categorized into a genre, though people liken her style to a hybrid of classical and hip-hop. Along with her beautifully unique voice, she utilizes a multitude of non-traditional instruments like glockenspiels and toy pianos, creating songs that sound fresh and new and stick with you long after you’ve finished listening.[soundcloud url="http://api.soundcloud.com/tracks/61851113" iframe="true" /]Lucky for all of you, Emily Wells will be in Portland this coming Tuesday (October 30th) at the Wonder Ballroom. She’s on tour promoting Mama Remixed, a follow-up to her LP that came out earlier this year, featuring The Blow, Baths, and Lemonade, just to name a few. You guys do not want to miss this show, trust us!
