For Your GRAMMY® Consideration:

THIS WORLD IS TOO ____ FOR YOU

By Emily Wells

BEST CHAMBER MUSIC/SMALL ENSEMBLE PERFORMANCE

BEST ARRANGEMENT, INSTRUMENTAL AND VOCALS

   

Violinist, singer, composer and producer Emily Wells released This World Is Too ____ For You earlier this year on March 22 on her label Thesis & Instinct. Now the album is available for your GRAMMY® consideration in two categories: Best Chamber Music/Small Ensemble Performance and Best Arrangement, Instrument and Vocals for the track “Stay Up.”

This World Is Too ____ For You features ten songs that began as a commission of new works from the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra’s renowned Liquid Music Series (Philip Glass, Bon Iver, Blood Orange). Produced and written by Wells, the record was developed through an additional commission from New York’s Grammy-nominated chamber orchestra Metropolis Ensemble, who also perform the arrangements on the project. The album also features drummer Shayna Dunkleman (Xiu Xiu, Peptalk) and was co-arranged for chamber ensemble by composer Michi Wiancko.

Emily Wells is a multi-instrumentalist, classically trained violinist, composer and producer. Wells blends classical and modern instrumentation and often samples live to create “dramatic, meticulous and gothic songs” (New York Times) that blend “traditionalism with electronic ambiance” (NPR). On stage, Wells’ evocative solo performances leave audiences equal parts dancing and grieving, as she builds new instruments out of acoustic and electronic drums, synth and violin. Her newest work, This World Is Too ____ For You is Wells’ fifth full-length album and third for her own label Thesis & Instinct.
