KCRW Presents: Emily Wells

July 11, 2013Originally a violinist, Wells has taken her artistry into undefined territory that blends blues, hip-hop and classical music. Watch her build a virtual backing band out of loops during this performance of "Mama's Gonna Give You Love" on KCRW's Morning Becomes Eclectic.

Emily Wells is one woman with the force of a band — and her sound has evolved as much as her setup. Starting with a loop pedal and a violin, she's incorporated additional instrumentation to add depth to her hip-hop-influenced style, which is one part Biggie and two parts lullaby. Recently she returned to Los Angeles and joined Morning Becomes Eclectic to play a version of the excellent track "Mama's Gonna Give You Love."
