biographical info

Fusing the art-forms of poetry and song, Canadian performer Miss Emily Brown bravely navigates the space between silence and sound with her unmistakable voice. Brown delivers decadently visual lyrics with pin-drop power across musical landscapes where folk, jazz, pop and electronic elements freely mingle. In six short years, she has produced four solo albums and three collaborative albums with West Coast chamber-folk ensemble Morlove. 

Road-stories? She's got suitcases full: the tale of the stolen autoharp; the mis-guided, gushing email from Gene Simmons; the demise of a beloved tour van named Bubblegum; the revival of Via Rail train performances; a chance encounter with a real-life Merovingian. Miss Emily Brown may have sought refuge in a cabin in the wilds of Quadra Island, but she has not forsaken the road: the life of a Canadian DIY touring artist is addictively unpredictable.

Nominated for a Canadian Folk Music Award for Pushing the Boundaries, a CBC Radio Bucky Award for Best New Artist, and put forward for the coveted Polaris Prize, Miss Emily Brown is currently preparing to record her next, highly anticipated full-length album. Understated, surprising and genuine, Miss Brown’s craft verges on the elemental and the timeless. Her touch is subtle. Her music is oceanic, huge.

“Miss Emily Brown’s voice is a mercurial weapon.” - exclaim! 

Francais:

Par ailleurs, les antécédents jazz et folk de Miss Emily Brown, combinés à sa passion pour la musique électronique et l'improvisation, donnent à ses prestations une touche particulièrement novatrice. Music-Box, autoharpe, guitare et Pianet accompagnent sa voix ensorcelante.
