ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"New York-based songstress Emily Mure delivers her self-released, self-produced and self-assured sophomore full-length Odyssey on July 30, an album of unpretentious, straight-and-true songwriting that draws from contemporary folk, acoustic country and intimate chamber pop. Apart from one cover, a lovely, mini-orchestrated version of Cake's "Mexico" (featuring Emily DiAngelo on oboe and Elizabeth Means on cello), Odyssey features nine original songs all written and performed with a minimum of extraneous decoration and Mure's distinctive, sandy-textured vocals. One of our favorites is "Joanne 6," a softly-strummed song that reminds us of Nick Drake's sublime simplicity, string-backed arrangements and ethereal atmospherics."

"confessional songwriting with delicate production"
-the modern folk music of america

"One part jazzy vocal, one part classical arrangement, one part folk songwriter equate to ALL parts really fantastic music. Emily Mure is a New York based songwriter releasing her sophomore effort “Odyssey” at the end of July. Classically trained musically, but self taught as a songwriter, she is able to appreciate what a lot of musicians are not, and that is a delicate balance (which is strongly displayed in the instrument arrangement and warm, poignant harmonies throughout the record). Emily has something, I am not sure what “it” is, but she has got IT. The sample track “Unfettered” is my first dive into Emily’s music and I am immediately in love (which is saying a lot because I am very picky about my favorite female musicians). There are just enough moving parts to make the song’s character shine, but it’s not overcrowded. A steady acoustic guitar, a nice flowing rhythm section, and some tasteful, distant guitar lines is all that is really needed to back Mure’s light but soulful airy vocal. And the harmonies lended by songwriter Michaela Anne perfectly complement the chorus with it’s catchy hook and infectious melody: 'I meant to say in person or in a letter/ I meant to let you know my heart's for you, unfettered.'"
