One to watch: Emily Wells, singer, 30


Is this the way from Amarillo? Wells hails from Tony Christie's favourite Texan town, but there's something altogether more otherworldly about her sound.

Having written a song for the Stoker soundtrack, this summer the classically trained musician releases her debut album, Mama, full of weird, dreamy folk songs delivered in a Southern drawl. Meanwhile, a side project, Pillowfight, with hip-hop producer Dan the Automator, might just coin a new genre – folk-hop.
