When considering New York-based Emily Wells, one cannot help but observe, in awe, the amount of sounds that can emit from one woman. Beginning as a classically trained violinist, Wells merges perfectly the well-groomed nuances of symphonic grandeur with the undeniably carnal, primal pulse of heavy hiphop beats, in cooperation with whatever other devices might exist to help her achieve looped sonic bliss. Wells' relatively quiet internet presence depicts her as blurry and enigmatic. Not to mention the scant recordings; she has only three official albums to date, with the curiously dulcet Dirty EP last appearing in 2009 (and containing the best cover of Biggie's "Juicy"... well, ever). However, she undoubtedly made it out here with something to show, and supposedly she has a renewed interest in live drumming, which should make for a particularly enlivened performance.
