Left Right

by Emily Kraemer

This gritty folk album, recorded live in a London church is a raw and evocative mix of songs. Bewitching and unpretentious, these bold and expressive songs hide behind nothing. Emily's typically playful character will whisk you through the emotions.

Album Notes
Emily Kraemer is a non-vegetarian singer songwriter from North London. She has released four albums and has been performing in the UK for over 10 years. Emily's sound is simple and exuberant, sometimes eccentric and sometimes punky. Her latest album Left Right, is a gritty and unpretentious mix of songs. Her untrained voice is a polite and welcoming change from many anti-folk singers and yet her style is unmistakeable.

Left Right was recorded live in St Saviours Church in North London. The album features 98% family members - Emily's Mother, Sister and Cousins perform in the string quartet, whilst her Father and Sister wrote the quartet arrangements for the songs. Left Right is the first album in which Emily used a professional drummer, Matthew Barnes (In Emily's Album Is It? Emily plays the drums herself). Matthew Barnes is a permanent member of the band, alongside Natasha Kraemer (sister) on Cello and Chloe Kraemer (cousin) on violin who make up the core ensemble. The album was recorded by Gabriele "Laps" Lampis, a talented producer who magically creates a sound to balance the mood and environment of the album.

The band performed in a number of festivals in the UK in 2012 and have gone down a storm. Their onstage communication and presence is both charming and exciting to watch. 2013 and beyond ought to be interesting for their progression. We look forward to their next journey.
