Emily Elbert weaves together a soul-folk blend of introspection and celebration. With a global, 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.” Imbuing organic sounds with progressive perspective, Emily’s songs reflect a heart attuned to observation and inquiry. She has independently released four albums of original music, and several singles, including 2017's protest-rocker "True Power." In addition to her work as a solo artist, she has collaborated with artists including Grammy-winning Esperanza Spalding, Jenny Lewis, Dweezil Zappa, and Phish's Mike Gordon, and co-written Bruno Major's viral hit "Easily". Emily's fifth album, the social-justice oriented “We Who Believe in Freedom," was released in fall 2018.
