Emily Wells Debuts Beguiling Lorna Dune Remix, ‘You Dream of China’

Who: Emily Wells
Where she was born: Amarillo, TX
Where she lives now: Brooklyn, NY
What she does: Write, record… play music… read…

How she capture ideas:
Melodies, text messages, occasional bouts of steadfast documentation most present when out of the country, and when making a record, pure, and I do mean pure, obsession.

Her most recent artistic reference:
Bob Fosse’s All That Jazz.

If you were a sound:
I wish it was the sound of predawn, but in reality it is probably muted hysteria via violin.

She believes in:

If she could see a social disruption:
America looking in the mirror and seeing China… Can i have two? Cellphones revealed more toxic than cigarettes (and less cool).

Something great she’s read:
Most recently Ben Lerner’s 10:04.

Something great she’s seen:
Most recently Transparent.

Heavy rotation:
Sidney Bechet’s “Blue Horizon,” (also if I’m honest, Ben Lerner’s 1st novel as read by the author, I’m kind of on a Ben Lerner thing right now).

She needs to change:
Posture.. definitely my posture.

Why she makes music:
It is the only language in which i can ever hope for clairvoyance.

Emily’s WILD Wish:
To be truly radical… to be brave.



‘Promise’ is out Jan 29

Emily will be on tour in support of the record with Lorna Dune in February through March
