Emily Mae Winters – Rising Folk/America

October 5, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

“If I had to predict the path for EMW, there’ll be Radio 2 folk
awards, respect will be gained. There’s a depth to her talent and an
ease about her performance that bode well… I expect one day I’ll
use the phrase ‘sounds like Emily Mae Winters’.”  Americana UK

Fast rising star on the U.K. Folk/Americana scene Emily Mae Winters
has that rare quality in a singer that makes critics reach for the
superlatives. Following the success of her award winning debut album
‘Siren Serenade’ Emily embarks on a brand new album pre release
tour this October with a full band. Hailed as having a voice that will
stop you in your tracks, 2017 saw Winters earn a host of emerging
artist awards including winning the Guardian Song-Writing Contest. Her
second album ‘High Romance’ will be produced by Matt Ingram
(Florence and the Machine, Laura Marling, The Staves) at the
prestigious London’s Urchin Studios this Winter.  

Emily was born in Birmingham but as a small child moved to Clonakilty
in Ireland, where her love for folk music was influenced by the Celtic
local folk scene. She performed at local venues, honing her talents as
a singer accompanying herself on the guitar.

Later on, Emily moved to London and worked at the Poetry society in
London, doing workshops for young people. She also trained as an
actress, and performed Shakespeare as Ophelia in Hamlet with a touring
company playing fringe theatre shows. 

Emily’s three loves are Words, Music and The Arts. It is not
surprising that one of the reviewers wrote: “Almost filigree like in
construction, glittering, but still able to breathe… “Siren
Serenade” will be wrecking ships for decades, the enchantment too
hard to resist” Fatea Magazine
