Quotes & Highlights

“Ms. Wells’ latest album, _The Symphonies: Dreams Memories & Parties _(creative control), is a warm, intriguing slice of avant-garde pop, and on stage she’s a delight.”—Wall Street Journal
“On her album The Symphonies: Dreams Memories and Parties, from 2008, the multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Wells layered her elfin voice over spectral string arrangements and brushstroked hip-hop percussion. The ten songs were symphonies only in the broadest sense of the term: the album is a highly theatrical labyrinth of rap, gothic folk, classical, and electronica songs.” —_The New Yorker _
“Emily Wells is a classical phenom with a cutting ear.” —Village Voice
“Layering eerie strings, bleeping synths, and electronic beats under Biggie’s rags-to-riches lyrics, she sings and raps like a feral, streetwise Nina Simone.” —Spin
