About the composer
Emily Levy is a singer, songwriter, and composer, originally from London and Oxford but now based in Yorkshire. Her sound is both intimate and dynamic with musical influences ranging from folk and jazz to medieval and flamenco. These starting points, combined with honest and delicate songwriting, create a spellbinding live performance. Emily sings, plays guitar and uses loops and effects to layer live harmonies. Originally classically trained, she now combines this influence with her love of folk, jazz and contemporary music to create a unique vocal style.
