Folk/indie country klezmer
Emma Dilemma is a beautiful contradiction of darkly cheerful electrified folk music. Country and Appalachian roots meets the reality of the modern world as simple three chord pop melodies are fleshed out into lush innovative arrangements. Her voice carries shades of country combined with the lyrical poetic honesty of Leonard Cohen to create songs that are as much old time spirituals as they are immediately relevant. In her words and melodies, the world of the intimately personal meets the hard edge of reality.

"He's in the Jonathan Richman school of delivery, and has a great way not only with words but also with phrasing." -Robert Gordon, Grammy Award-winning writer and filmmaker
