With a voice that has been compared to Adele, Regina Spektor, and Lauryn Hill, Emily writes and performs unique, vocal-forward songs that will leave you both nostalgic and hopeful. Emily Afton’s sound intertwines ribbons of indie-pop, soul, and alternative rock into stories that unearth her life as an “overly sensitive,” yet critical, artist who is coming of age in the first world.
In 2010, she released her first EP under the former stage name Emily Moldy, which led to touring performances with greats such as Sean Hayes, Scarub (of the Living Legends), Mira, and more. In 2012, her song “My Own One” was featured on a Nature Valley Thins Commercial, and again in Estee Lauder’s 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign, exposing her music to wider audiences and bringing her local and national recognition.
Since then, she has been performing and recording under her new (and actual) name, Emily Afton. Working with acclaimed Bay Area producers David Earl and Lila Rose, she has spent the whole of 2014 evolving herself as a recording artist, while immersing herself in the creation of her first full-length album (to be released in Spring 2015).
