Emily Jane White
Emily Jane White is an American 'dark folk' singer-songwriter from California. From a beginning in 2006, she released her debut album in 2007, a follow-up in 2009, and her third album in 2011. Influenced by American blues, folk, and the mythologies of different cultures along with contemporary female singer/songwriters such as Kate Bush, she has been compared to Chan Marshall of Cat Power and Hope Sandoval of Mazzy Star. While such comparisons to contemporaries are frequent, White's music owes a clear debt to classic female jazz and blues singers such as Billie Holiday.
