Emily Fairlight is a poet and a songwriter.
Emily’s sound has been compared to P.J. Harvey, Grace Slick (Jefferson Airplane), Natalie Merchant, and Cat Power.
Her voice ranges from the most intimate of whispers to the strongest of wails, delivering beautiful and honest lyrics with heartfelt melodies.
Emily has been composing and performing for over a decade now, and in this time has played throughout NZ, Australia and the USA. Her third and most recent trip to the USA saw her record her sophomore album with Doug Walseth of The Cat’s Eye Studio in Austin, Texas, featuring some incredible Texan musicians including Cully Symington (Bright Eyes and Okkervil River) and multi-instrumentalist Kullen Fuchs. The album is scheduled for release April 2018.
Her band features Ben Cole (The Datsuns, Joint Chiefs) on drums and Andrew Bain (Fur Patrol, Svelte) on bass.
