Armed with an arsenal of brilliant songs and a voice that could melt even the coldest heart, New York-based Emily Greene is your new favorite star-on-the-rise. When she’s not on tour playing keys for Passion Pit – you may have heard of them – she’s busy dominating the NY music scene and releasing gorgeous, independently-produced records that showcase her honest, affecting vocal performances and fiery piano chops. Give a listen to “Starting Fresh” below, a cut off her 2010 opus Is This What You Had In Mind.
Once you’re desperately craving more, check out her project Kissy Girls, a duo with producer Pascal Le Boeuf (no relation to Shia, we think). “Be Patient” is, in their own words, “slow, sappy, sex music,” a soft and understated track that marries Greene’s crooning with Pascal’s adventurous synths and percussion.
We leave you with a series of covers, the result of a collaborative opportunity on Indaba Music between Emily Greene, fellow Brooklynites Lucius and Sydney Wayser, and the 700,000+ musicians and producers of the Indaba community. Get ready to dance alone in your bedroom to this reimagined Cyndi Lauper classic.
