KCRW Presents: Emily WellsKCRW

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."
