Biography

ExitProject is a two-piece folktronica band currently based in York, England. Their debut single, 'Healing Slow' features organic instrumentation laced with electronic influences. Emi Jarvi's honest, laid-bare vocals and J Carmichael's Acoustic guitar are matched with electronic drum samples, synths, twinkles and the occasional kitchen appliance. Their music is melodic and harmony-drenched, their lyrics strike a balance between authenticity and artistry.

Chicago-raised Emi Jarvi and Englishman J Carmichael formed ExitProject in 2007 and immediately began to generate interest. Their original music was chosen by Life Fitness, one of the largest suppliers of fitness equipment in the world, to launch one of their new lines of fitness equipment. ExitProject were flown to Las Vegas to perform to a sold-out crowd in the legendary Ghost Bar on the top floor of the Palms Hotel. Shortly after their Vegas headline, Emi was asked to provide vocals for Grammy-nominated DJ, Paul Van Dyk's label, Vandit. Among all the excitement and activity, ExitProject found time for a mini-tour of the northern-central USA. Venues included Uncommon Ground, where Jeff Buckley was famously discovered.
