Emily Elbert


Emily Elbert Uses:

Emily Elbert weaves together a rhythmic funk-folk blend that is equal parts introspection and celebration. With a global spirit and do-it-yourself passion, she has shared her music around the world, playing over a thousand independent shows from Peru to Palestine. These experiences are reflected in her lyrics, touching on personal journeys, divine mystery, and the universality in between. Anchored by intricate guitar playing and an old-soul voice, Emily’s music offers progressive perspective while paying tribute to the timeless. She has independently released four albums, and is currently touring as a member of Esperanza Spalding’s latest project, “Emily’s D+Evolution”.

Emily has opened for acts including G. Love & Special Sauce, Victor Wooten, Kaki King, Leon Russell, Robben Ford, and Richie Havens, and collaborated with artists ranging from Ben Taylor to Dweezil Zappa. Her music has garnered praise from publications like the Washington Post, Utne Reader, and Glamour Magazine, won awards in the U.S. and U.K., and attracted over two million YouTube views. The Boston Folk Festival notes, “Emily is among the most glowing of the upcoming generation of American singer-songwriters, if ‘upcoming’ even applies to this phenom any longer.”

“The Envelope Phaser is funky, fascinating, and versatile. I boarded a spaceship the moment it came out of the box. I’m excited about the wide range of new sounds I’m now able access with this pedal—all kinds of soulful and psychedelic. Thanks for stoking the creative fire!”
