As a follow up to her critically acclaimed album “Promise”, composer / producer / performer Emily Wells will release an EP of B sides and studio recorded live arrangements March 3, 2017. With a belief in the sovereignty of melody to hold a song to itself, Wells consistently bends and re-renders her original works to almost entirely new forms in her live performances. Not wanting her months of touring to fall entirely to the ephemeral Wells has recorded a few of the arrangements in their new forms. In addition there are also a few unreleased compositions. She will tour in support of the EP in select US and European cities.
Praise for Wells' latest full length "Promise" + Live performances :
• “Quietly transfixing…Ms. Wells works in the manner of what Walt Whitman called “a noiseless, patient spider,” sending out filament after filament until a structure begins to form.” –NEW YORK TIMES

•"The shape-shifting string virtuoso ignores genre boundaries while conjuring a uniquely affecting session of atmospheric folk..." - RED BULL MUSIC ACADEMY

• “Extraordinary, presenting a sort of ambient gospel-folk music that’s immersed in secular desires and experiences.” – NPR

• "...unconventional and rather moving.." - NOISEY

• “‘Promise’ is a record like few others – both tangible and smoky, guttural and delicate, it treads atop a thin sheet of ice throughout, yet remains unafraid to bask in the warmth of its creator.” – DIY
Lorna Dune
Praised by VICE Magazine as the "mistress of new music" and named as one of 2014's Artists to Watch by The Fader, Lorna Dune has been turning heads since her foray into the world of electronic minimal techno production. An experimental pianist, who has played with likes of Steve Reich and the Philip Glass Ensemble, has a new take on weightier beat-driven techno which is both fresh in its approach to the genre and also a unique arrival through her journey through sound. Almost synesthesia-like images of "trawling Petar Dundov's Adriatic waters with an arresting sheer Balearic decadence and holographic gleam" (Resident Advisor) appear in the amygdala upon first listen.

Her latest EP "Miamisphere" released by Brooklyn's mysterious experimental electronic imprint Lo Bit Landscapes in 2013 has received premieres by Pitchfork and Boiler Room and has been featured in Resident Advisor, Red Bull Music Academy, VICE Magazine, XLR8R, Ibiza Voice and more. She has also caught the attention of the New York Times for remixing a Pulitzer Prize winning work by composer Caroline Shaw and also has an upcoming remix by composer Max Richter to be released on Detusche Grammophon.

Lorna Dune's highly anticipated full-length album "Transmutation" is set to be released in Spring 2015.
