Truth be told, I rarely listen to NPR. I have over an hour commute to work everyday and sometimes I feel like it’s sacrilegious to the Office-Space-9to5’ers world by not listening to the radio. The one time I turned it on (accidentally) I heard something that I wanted to be on my iPod immediately. It was the sweet sweet folksy-psychedelic voice of Emily Wells.
She was trained as a classical violinist at the age of 4 and has finally decided to make a musical career of her talents. Emily has many in fact, as she plays almost every instrument you hear on her new album, Mama. Listen to what I heard on the airwaves here. Thanks, NPR.
PS- As I was feverishly trying to find Emily Wells, I stumbled upon Emma Wells. This Wells, from the UK, is just as real and influenced by folk, soul, country, and pop. She has that laid-back, easy listening vibe going on. Both Wells will totally be featured on my next mix for a Vermont adventure.
