Our latest live video shot by #SoFarSounds in San Francisco!
Emily Afton’s voice is transporting. Smokey, powerful, and emotive, Emily delivers her soul to you in the form of nostalgic indie-pop songs - with ribbons of folk and electronica interwoven. Solo or with her band, Afton aims to snatch your heart with her live performance playing vocal-driven narratives in the style of Fiona Apple followed by dark synths and uptempo dance tracks that turn swaying audiences into dancing crowds. Last fall one of her live performances did just this for Third Eye Blind lead singer Stephan Jenkins, who promptly asked her to join their U.S. tour as the opening band. An inspired Afton quickly returned home, post tour to finish her debut full-length album.
ARCHETYPE [album] was released in September 2016 and was called an "indie-pop explosion from an artist who is clearly on an ascent." The episodic debut LP, co-produced by David Earl and Lila Rose reveals a new edge and depth to the once sweet singer-songwriter's music. ARCHETYPE laces together the story of an artist discovering both the sonic and emotional ghosts to be explored in the worlds within us, and it is a beautiful journey. Emily and her band plan to tour the new album across the U.S. throughout 2017.
