As a follow up to her critically acclaimed album “Promise”, composer / producer / performer Emily Wells will release an EP of B sides and studio recorded live arrangements March 3, 2017. With a belief in the sovereignty of melody to hold a song to itself, Wells consistently bends and re-renders her original works to almost entirely new forms in her live performances. Not wanting her months of touring to fall entirely to the ephemeral Wells has recorded a few of the arrangements in their new forms. In addition there are also a few unreleased compositions. She will tour in support of the EP in select US and European cities.

Praise for Wells’ latest full length “Promise” + Live performances:

• “Quietly transfixing…Ms. Wells works in the manner of what Walt Whitman called “a noiseless, patient spider,” sending out filament after filament until a structure begins to form.” –NEW YORK TIMES

• “The shape-shifting string virtuoso ignores genre boundaries while conjuring a uniquely affecting session of atmospheric folk…” – RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY

• “Extraordinary, presenting a sort of ambient gospel-folk music that’s immersed in secular desires and experiences.” – NPR

• “…unconventional and rather moving..” – NOISEY

• “‘Promise’ is a record like few others – both tangible and smoky, guttural and delicate, it treads atop a thin sheet of ice throughout, yet remains unafraid to bask in the warmth of its creator.” – DIY

Shilpa Ray is a wailing, fire breathing Cyclops. She tornadoes everything in her path: small towns, big cities, and children’s dreams. One of her fans commented on a YouTube video, “If there’s a heaven, I want God to hire Shilpa Ray to sing the list of my sins.” Within a few hours, she had a day job working for Saint Peter. Ray has ripped off all the greats—The Gun Club, Tom Waits, The Doors— and recently pulled off a triple rip: ripping off Nina Simone ripping off Screamin’ Jay Hawkins ripping off the Devil.

Shilpa Ray released her album Teenage and Torture in 2011 on Knitting Factory Records and found her biggest fan in Nick Cave who started telling music journalists she was his favorite current band. Cave brought her on tour as support for a few Grinderman dates, recorded the Wiel/Brecht song “Pirate Jenny” with her for Hal Wilner’s Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs and Chanteys II, and then hired her to sing backup on his Spring 2013 Bad Seeds tour as well as main support for their Fall 2013 UK and Europe tour to promote her new 4-song EP It’s All Self Fellatio on his record label Bad Seed LTD. She has also served as main support for Man Man and Acid Mother’s Temple as well as the opening act for Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, and A Place to Bury Strangers.

She currently works and plays with her 4-piece band and is releasing her latest album Last Year’s Savage in 2015 on bellwether Northern Spy record label.
