With her eagerly-awaited debut album First Love released this week, London-based singer-songwriter Emmy the Great sets out on a UK tour which comes to Norwich Arts Centre tonight, Monday.
A member of the anti-folk scene, Emma-Lee Moss, known by her stage name as Emmy the Great, has been reducing rowdy crowds to an awed silence for some time, releasing her debut single in April 2006.
She has collaborated with several other artists, the most recent being Lightspeed Champion. She has supported the likes of Martha Wainwright, Mystery Jets, Tilly and the Wall, and Jamie T, among others and has recently supported Get Cape.Wear Cape.Fly. She has played numerous festivals including Truck, Green Man and Latitude.
Since the release of the single Gabriel in November 2007, Emmy the Great has developed from a solo venture to a full collaborative ensemble. The band is formed around a core of Emmy, guitarist Euan Hinshelwood, and pianist Tom Rogerson.
