Emily Wells is an artist that you must see to believe. She is a composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist who continues to impress time and time again. Her new album, Promise, has been called “a soul record in baroque clothing that meditates on a personal life deeply nourished by art and literature”. Limited hand-numbered were available, but were quickly snatched up. Grab one of the remaining copies form the link below and be sure to catch Emily Wells On Tour 2016!


Emily Wells‘ songwriting combines electronics, orchestral strings, jazz structures, pop sensibilities, and vibrato-laden vocals into one eclectic package. A former child prodigy, she began fielding offers from record labels during her teenage years. Wells balked at the idea of relinquishing creative control to a team of producers, however, and independently toured the country to support her music instead. After relocating to Los Angeles, she built a home studio and set to work on her debut album. Beautiful Sleepyhead and the Laughing Yaks arrived in 2006 and flaunted 14 tracks that were written, performed, produced, and mixed by Wells herself. A second album, The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties, followed in 2008, featuring help from bassist Joey Reina and drummer Sam Halterman. Wells’ continued success landed her a deal with Partisan Records, who put out her third outing, Mama, in 2012. Over the next few years, Wells worked steadily, playing concerts and benefitting from prominent music placement on television. Wells released her next album, Promise, early in 2016 on her Thesis And Instinct label.” ~ Andrew Leahey
