Where I Began
'Clearly a good singer with a uniquely admirable consistency in her lyrical abilities, Emily's songs and performance last week seemed to shun a stifling "hipsteresqe" genre or style, so too often the norm, and exuded a refreshingly traditional focus on songcraft. Emily's influences are the most lyrically-driven geniuses of our time, and she's learned very well to tell her stories, or paint her verbal pictures without forcing the words to the melody for the passive listener. Thank you for that.' -Jezebel Music 1/9/08.
