BandFolk

Emily Kimball's music is a hantingly funky folk. She sounds like a young Joni Mitchell, if Joni Mitchell were 19 years old right now. She mixes surpising chord progressions with interesting rhythmic figures and novel-like lyrics. Her voice is sweet with a warm sharp edge to it.

Biography

Emily Kimball is a singer/songwriter from Maine, now living and going to school in Boston. She started playing guitar and writing songs at 15, though she had been writing lyrics and banging away on the piano and bass for years before that. In 2004 as a graduating senior in highschool she released her first 4 song Demo: The Tornado EP. After the release she began playing shows and has played in numerous venues in Maine, Mass, and Florida. In 2005 bass player Marcel Hamel began to play along and the songs began to grow. Emily is very used to being onstage, as she was a soloist with the Maine State Ballet Company for 4 years, while still in highschool. She enjoys connecting with the audience, whether it be onstage, playing on street corners or talking after a show.
