Emily Jane White
Nightmares on Repeat
Hole In The Middle
Emily Jane White is a singer/songwriter from California who released her debut album in 2007. While studying at the UC Santa Cruz during the early 2000s, White fronted a band called the Diamond Star Halos and began developing her craft as a songwriter.
After college she moved to France and established herself as a solo artist. Upon returning to California in 2006 and basing herself in San Francisco, she collaborated with producer Wainwright Hewlett on her full-length album debut, Dark Undercoat (2007). Released initially on the Oakland, California-based label Double Negative Records, Dark Undercoat was subsequently licensed for international release by the label Talitres in 2008. Her sophomore effort, Victorian American, was released on Talitres in France in 2009, and on Milan in the United States in early 2010. White's own Ode to Sentience arrived on Talitres in 2011 and a year later in the U.S. on Antenna Farm Records. In 2013, the lusher but still brooding Blood/Lines, was released by Talitres and Important Records. 2016's release, a reference to the opening of Cormac McCarthy's novel Outer Dark, They Moved in Shadow All Together was recorded in Oakland and San Francisco over a period of two years. For 2019's Immanent Fire, White worked with arranger Anton Patzner, who helped her achieve an epic, immersive sound as she explored the concept of "the war immanence" that propels humanity's destructive relationship to our natural world. ~ Jason Birchmeier & Marcy Donelson, Rovi
