Inspired by folktales and ballads, Emily Portman weaves harmony-rich narratives relaying female experience. These visceral visions of a darker Albion conjure landscapes where mythical sirens collide in urban backstreets. Emily’s 2010 debut album The Glamoury has been received with overwhelming critical acclaim, with The Observer hailing it “A remarkable and original debut.”

“One of the new British folk scene’s most beguiling presences”Uncut
