      Hey Emily, nice session Sunday, but watch out—your father nearly stole the show! A bit of context (hang on…) First heard of you and saw you perform on one of your solo acoustic CW shows earlier this year. Loved the vocals, but thought they sounded kind of “thin” without any backing. Fast forward to Alive, in Love. Downloaded a copy of what was then your most recent album, and was blown away by both the vocals and the high-energy sound. As for last night, thought that having your Dad accompany on keyboards worked really well. Was only half-joking in suggesting that the two of you should record a studio album together (crowd-source funding??)…Nice selection of material. Covers are always a bit of a risk, but really enjoyed your versions of I Will and The Wind Cried Mary. Also the jazz guitar work on both, as well—added another dimension to the sound. Too bad about the sound problems, but worth putting up with given the quality of the show. Would love it if you (two) could get access to a studio some time for another live-streamed show, if it would help with the sound…. And by the way, any plans (hope, hope) to tour around the Pacific Northwest? Anyhow, sure you’ve got a great future ahead of you—all the best, and hope to hear you again SOON! :)

      Great Concert! Emily and her father played some wonderful music. Sound was pretty distorted in the beginning but with feedback from the audience they got that under control. They are both extremely talented musicians. I love listening to Emily's original tunes and her interpretation of the classics.

Emily Elbert weaves together a jazz-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 Peru to Palestine. Anchored by intricate guitar work and an old-soul voice, Emily’s songs offer progressive perspective while paying tribute to the timeless. She has independently released four albums, and two new singles, “Letting Go / Here & Now”, in November 2016.

Recently, Emily spent a year touring as a member of Esperanza Spalding’s experimental music and theater project, “Emily’s D+Evolution”. The group recorded an album to wide critical acclaim, and played shows ranging from the Late Show with Stephen Colbert to the Sydney Opera House.

Solo, Emily has had the honor of opening for acts including Leon Russell, Victor Wooten, G. Love & Special Sauce, Richie Havens, Emily King, Robben Ford, Raul Midon, Kaki King, Nneka, Jorge Drexler, and Tuck & Patti, and collaborated with artists ranging from Ben Taylor to Dweezil Zappa. Her music has garnered praise from publications like the Washington Post, Utne Reader, and Glamour Magazine, and won awards in the U.S. and U.K.. Through authentic song sharing, she strives for a deepening sense of human and spiritual connection that is accessible to all.
