Emily Elbert weaves together a rhythmic funk-folk blend that is equal parts introspection and celebration. With a global spirit and do-it-yourself passion, the nomadic songstress has lovingly carried her songs around the world, playing over a thousand independent shows, from Peru to Palestine. These experiences are reflected in her music, touching on the personal, the divine, and the universality that lies in between - a tribute to the timeless, fused with progressive perspective.
She has opened for acts including G. Love & Special Sauce, Victor Wooten, Kaki King, Leon Russell, Robben Ford, and Richie Havens, and collaborated with artists ranging from Ben Taylor to Dweezil Zappa. Emily's music has garnered praise from publications like the Washington Post, Utne Reader, and Glamour Magazine, won awards in the U.S. and U.K., and attracted more than 1.5 million YouTube views. She has independently released four albums and is currently touring as a member of Esperanza Spalding’s new project, Emily’s D+Evolution. The Boston Folk Festival notes, “Emily is among the most glowing of the upcoming generation of American singer-songwriters, if ‘upcoming’ even applies to this phenom any longer.”
With a voice reminiscent of Norah Jones, Emily draws from diverse influences to create a sound all her own.
