Primary Instrument: Vocalist

Emily Bezar is an alchemist, a truly unique singer and composer who draws freely from classical, jazz, rock, pop and electronic music to create a sound world all her own. Her soaring voice and keyboard- centric arrangements have earned her comparisons to Kate Bush and Tori Amos as well as to jazz icon Keith Jarrett and prog legends King Crimson. Her songs are kinetic and never predictable, surging from delicate to intense, from open simplicity to opaque density, but always ravishingly melodic. Most of all, they are honest and true, full of passion, elegance, conflict and order.

“Exchange” is her 5th self-produced album of uncategorizable, emotionally compelling music. If this is a jazz vocal album, then her musical references are an elusive, moving target, suggesting as much early 70’s electric fusion as tin-pan alley. If this is a classical vocal album, analyzing whether it is post-post- minimalism or pre-pre-Schoenberg is a hard study. And if it is Art-Rock, well then you’ll have to find some room on the shelf between Hatfield and the North and Kate Bush’s early albums, but that won’t quite be the right spot either....
