Red Balloon Music are proud to present EMILY MAE WINTERS for the first date of her ‘High Romance’ Album Release Tour!
Support comes from HANNAH ROSE PLATT and TORIA WOOFF.
Fast rising star on the U.K. Folk/Americana scene Emily Mae Winters has that rare quality in a singer that makes critics reach for the superlatives.
Described as having a voice that “stops you in your tracks” and “arresting, enthralling, tantalising” by Americana UK, Emily combines straight-to-the-heart bittersweetness with her own unique passion and drama in performance. Emily Mae Winters’ exquisite songs which sit between the stormy seas of folk and country are influenced by artists including Alison Krauss, Emmylou Harris, Gillian Welch and Sarah Jarosz.
Emily’s self-penned debut album Siren Serenade was produced by BBC Folk Award Winning producer Ben Walker. Described as “Vibrant and experimental” by Songlines magazine, one of the record’s standout tracks ‘Anchor’ won her the Guardian Songwriting Competition.
Siren Serenade was released to critical acclaim, picking up plays on U.K. radio including the BBC Radio 2 Folk Show, BBC Good Morning Sunday as well as international folk and Americana radio in the U.S.
Winters received a scholarship to showcase at Folk Alliance International in the U.S. The album was then selected in the International Americana Music Show’s top ten albums and featured in American Songwriting Magazine’s reviews of the month as well as being shortlisted for the Fatea Debut Album of the Year and winning the Best Debut Album of the Year in the Laurel Canyon Music Awards.
Her first headline tour of the year led to invites to play to her largest audiences yet including Cambridge Folk Festival and Moseley Folk Festival among others. Winters embarked on her third headline tour this year with a band, playing some sell out shows.
Winters is due to release of her second album ‘High Romance’ this June produced by award winning Americana producer Matt Ingram at Urchin Studios (Florence and the Machine, Lucy Rose, Laura Marling).
“It’s hard to see how much longer Emily Mae Winters can stay under the radar, such is the talent waiting to burst through. She’s taking on Americana on her own terms. The sky could be the limit.” – W21 Country Music
“One of the most exciting rising starts of U.K. Folk and Americana, she paints deeply beautiful and deeply atmospheric word pictures.” – Laurel Canyon Music UK- Debut Album of the Year
“If I had to predict the path for Emily Mae Winters, there will be Radio 2 folk awards, respect will be gained. There’s a depth to her talent. I expect one day I’ll use the phrase ‘sounds like Emily Mae Winters.’ ” – Americana UK
