Emily Elbert weaves together a blend of folk-inspired introspection and soulful celebration. With a D.I.Y spirit, she has carried her music around the world, playing over a thousand independent shows from Italy to Indonesia.
Anchored by what L.A. Weekly calls a “funky, engrossing groove" with "sly words in artful arrangements,” the publication notes, "Elbert would be considered remarkable just for her guitar playing, which segues from hard-edged funk and blues to more gently subtle jazz intricacy. But she’s an equally adept vocalist, weaving her soulful phrasing nimbly within the rhythms of her guitar chords.” She has independently released five albums and several singles, imbuing organic sounds with progressive perspective. In addition to her work as a solo artist, she has collaborated with artists including Grammy-winning Esperanza Spalding, Dweezil Zappa, Phish's Mike Gordon, and co-written Bruno Major's viral hit "Easily". Following a year of touring in Jenny Lewis’ band, Emily returns in 2020 with fresh material and new releases in the works.
