Emmy the Great @ The Georgian Theatre - September 24th

Critically acclaimed folk singer Emmy The Great will be heading to Stockton’s The Georgian Theatre this September as she heads across the U.K with her latest album, Virtue, out on 13 June.

Emmy, real name Emma-Lee Moss, was initially a member of the indie folk group Lightspeed Champion, performing as their vocalist for a brief period in 2007 alongside Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine).

Her debut album, First Love, was released in 2009 and garnered her mass critical acclaim, as well as many comparisons to Laura Marling; comparisons that still stick today.

Her new offering, Virtue, was written and recorded under very different circumstances to her first. It began as a series of stories Emmy embarked on after her engagement to an atheist, but took on a very different shape when he left her for the church.

‘She’s so wry, she’s practically Wry-an Adams.’ 8/10, Vice on Virtue

Noted for her evocative and thought-provoking lyrics, and her inventive way with rhyme, her live performances have bags of vulnerability and sass in equal measures.

‘Moss’ acid confessionals have always felt more interesting than Marling’s folk fairytales, and so it proves here.’ 4/5, Uncut on Virtue
