Brandon Music

 
 

 

Emily Mure

 

Saturday, May 16th at 7:30pm

Classically informed singer-songwriter, Emily Mure makes a welcome return to Brandon Music. Her previous appearance with her trio wowed the audience with its virtuoso mix of folk and classical sounds. This concert follows a songwriting workshop Emily is leading at the Compass Music and Arts Center from 10:00am-3:00pm.

Emily sings her introspective songs with a smoky voice reminiscent of Mazzy Star and Norah Jones. She integrates her classical roots and composition techniques with her folk and Irish inspired singing and songwriting, a love she first fell for while attending Ithaca College and a passion fully developed from her time spent in Ireland as a busker on the streets of Galway.

“There was/is something about her songs and voice that made me want to go off into a quiet place and to be sure I captured each and every note”, says No Depression.

Growing up in New York City and attending LaGuardia High School For The Performing Arts, Emily got her start in music playing the oboe and performing in major concert halls, including Carnegie Hall and Alice Tully Hall, all before the age of 17. She has two self-released albums, including her critically acclaimed album, Odyssey (2013) . Emily was an emerging artist at Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, a Telluride Bluegrass Troubadour in 2014 and has shared the stage with the likes of Kim Richey, The Duhks, Darlingside, Kath Bloom, Kris Delmhorst, Haas Kowert Tice, and more. Her songs have received airplay on numerous radio stations and have made their way into shows and movies on NBC, PBS, and ABC.

Currently, Emily performs around the Northeast, solo and with her chamber-folk trio (Audrey Q Snyder on cello and Emily DiAngelo on oboe and english horn). She has performed in reputable venues including Club Passim, The Iron Horse Music Hall, Club Helsinki, The Living Room and The Highline Ballroom. In the past few years, Emily has developed a strong passion for teaching. In addition to performing and touring around the Northeast, she also offers private guitar and songwriting lessons. She hosts songwriting workshops at High Schools, Universities and locally around her community in Brookline, MA, where she is currently based.
