Emily Wells

7 p.m. Tuesday, May 8. Old Rock House, 1200 South Seventh Street.

Emily Wells
Emily Wells has been playing violin since age four.

Let's just end the conversation right here about the dissolving of genres with Emily Wells. She's a lifelong, classically trained violinist who, in a recent interview said, "there is nothing like a well-mic'd bass drum." Plus, she has a cover of Notorious B.I.G.'s "Juicy" that is the least touristy any white person with a stringed instrument has ever sounded covering gangster rap. Her new album, Mama, is a spectacular daydream on which Wells plays a minor orchestra of instruments, looping phrases until they become mantras.

Emily Wells loops every instrument live.

Independent Music Plays Here: Thank you to Tim Rakel, who introduced us to Emily Wells by playing her music on his Mystery Train show on KDHX (88.1 FM).
