Event description

Description

Celebrate the release of Emily Wells’ new full length album This World Is Too _____ For You with a performance of the full record featuring Metropolis Ensemble and Shayna Dunkleman. This is the NYC premiere!

The ten song album, produced by Wells, is lush, melodic, and unafraid. It’s both neoclassical chamber music, and art pop, propelled by synths, strings, and beats, and held together through Wells’ un-wincing lyrics and vocals.

The songs began as a commission of new works from the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s renowned Liquid Music Series (recent commissions include Philip Glass, Blood Orange, Bon Iver), with arrangements by violin virtuoso and composer Michi Wiancko for string quintet and french horn. Wells developed the album through a commission from New York’s Metropolis Ensemble (grammy nominated chamber orchestra) who join Emily on the album along with drummer Shayna Dunkleman (Xiu Xiu, Peptalk).
