Coming to us from Austin Texas, Emily Wolfe brings a guitar-drenched sound that’s wildly unpredictable and immediately magnetic. The singer/songwriter/guitarist explores and obliterates the boundaries of rock-and-roll and modern pop, mining equal inspiration from the likes of Judas Priest and Ariana Grande in her bold but masterful genre-bending music. A self-taught guitarist who’d started playing at age five, Wolfe made her debut with the self-released 2014 EP Roulette, and soon took the stage at major festivals like Austin City Limits and BottleRock Napa.
The second full-length from Emily Wolfe, Outlier, was released on June 25, 2021. With its delicate collision of so many eclectic sonic elements—shimmering beats, sultry grooves, riffs both visceral and elegant—Outlier marks a significant departure for Wolfe while retaining the unbridled intensity she’s shown in sharing stages with such acts as The Struts, The Pretenders, White Reaper, Joan Jett, and Catfish and the Bottlemen.
