Austin’s rising dream rock singer/songwriter/guitarist, Emily Wolfe, has teamed up with CULTURE COLLiDE to premiere her new track “Ghost Limb” today, here: http://bit.ly/1rH9IoD. Wolfe will be releasing her upcoming EP, “Roulette,” next Tuesday, October 7th, 2014. Produced by Mike McCarthy (Spoon, Patty Griffin, Dead Confederate), the 5-song EP takes listeners on a journey through Wolfe’s haunting vocals, roaring lead guitar, fuzzy bass lines and driving drum beats. Be sure to catch Emily Wolfe at her upcoming gigs at Austin City Limits and CMJ Music Marathon in NYC this October. For more information, please visit: http://www.emilywolfemusic.com.
Named one of NPR‘s 5 New Bands To Watch At SXSW in 2014, Emily Wolfe‘s creative songwriting keeps her fans aglow thanks to her strong, powerful lead vocals and dominating guitar style. Her keyboardist and backup vocalist Hannah Hagar along with instrumentally indispensable Sam Pankey (bass) and Jeff Olson (drums), hold the band’s rhythm section which provide the solid groundwork to allow Emily’s lyrics and guitar-work to glide atop.
After releasing two stirring EPs in 2013 – “Mechanical Hands“ and “Night & Day“ – the “dream rock” singer-songwriter-guitarist showcases an ability to slip from delicate folk and slide effortlessly into a more aggro atmosphere. Featured tracks in PASTE magazine, MTV Buzzworthy, American Songwriter, and CW‘s The Vampire Diaries has led to sold-out shows in New York City and Austin, TX- sharing stages with the likes of Allen Stone, White Denim, Robert Ellis, Bob Schneider, Wild Child, and The Boxer Rebellion.
About new song, “Ghost Limb,” Wolfe says the track was“written from the perspective of a model I saw on a billboard in Austin. She was modeling for a specific kind of beer and it made me think about what drives people to use their bodies to sell products to consumers. Then my thoughts skipped and I applied that to the music industry and being controlled by super sellers – for instance, a lot of times bands will get record deals and then their music will be totally controlled by certain taste makers.” She continues, “I think that would make me feel incredibly trapped – the song is about being afraid of becoming a product and straying from making real music. That’s what I want to do, make real music.”
Emily Wolfe transcends the ranks of ordinary musicians. With versatility all her own, Wolfe’s ability to transform from rock and roll fireball into intimate acoustic songwriter truly separates her from the pack.
