Los Angeles, CA
1. Come Too Far
2. Here And Now
3. True Power
Soft spoken Los Angeles-based artist Emily Elbert is a treasure. She pairs a smooth and airy voice with quick hands on the guitar to create music that’s very uniquely her. It’s impossible to put her genre in a box—it’s not simply jazz or folk or soul or blues, it’s a delightful combination all four, and then some. She adds a global flair and meaningful lyrics to deliver truly special performances.
When Emily isn’t touring the world with jazz virtuosa Esperanza Spalding, or collaborating with Dweezil Zappa and Bruno Major, she’s hard at work as an acclaimed solo artist. And she’s doing it all without the backing of a label; in fact, she’s currently recording her fifth solo album in the comfort of her own Los Angeles home! Emily has opened for acts like Leon Russell, Victor Wooten, and G. Love & Special Sauce, in addition to independently releasing four albums. She’s garnered praise from publications like The Washington Post and Glamour magazine, and won awards in the US and UK.
Emily’s session features a brand new track “Come Too Far” that chronicles the feelings of not wanting to give up on a relationship followed by the fingerpicked heart song “Here and Now”. Emily then shows her need to #resist in her song for Donald Trump “True Power”, a song that’s lyrics peck at the president’s shortcomings. Emily closes out with her stripped down version of the viral pop/soul hit “Easily” that she co-wrote with Bruno Major.
We're pumped that she took some time out of her hectic schedule to grace Music Attic with her easy-going nature, positive energy, and of course, her incredible music. Support Emily and Music Attic by purchasing the audio of the session below! We split earnings 50/50 with artists.
