Fast rising star on the U.K. folk/country 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.

A trained musical theatre performer turned Shakespearean actress, eventually Winters left the characters behind in favour of her guitar to tell her own stories through song. A self confessed ‘poetry geek’, growing up a fan of 19th Century romantic poetry and literature, Winters released her much awaited second album ‘High Romance’ in July 2019 which sits between the stormy seas of folk and country.

The record was produced by award winning London based Americana producer Matt Ingram at Urchin Studios (Florence and the Machine, Lucy Rose, Laura Marling, The Staves) Winters has received support from the BBC Country Show with Bob Harris on BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 2 Folk Show & BBC Radio 2 Good Morning Sunday. The record reached No.3 in the iTunes Country Charts and was listed in Folk Radio UK’s Top Ten Albums of the Year leading to two sell out headline tours with her band and invitations to play a host of prestigious festivals. Winters very recently supported award winning Nashville artist Molly Tuttle on her U.K. tour.

"Vibrant and Experimental, sumptuously produced making it clear why Winters is gaining a following on both sides of the Atlantic."

**** RocknReel Magazine 

 

"Strong follow up album from this Americana prodigy. Dark and moody, compelling vocal style" Maverick Magazine

 

"One of the finest slices of Americana you will hear. It won’t be long before reviews compare others to Winters rather than the other way round. A sure thing for best of the year lists." Fatea
