The old model of form band, ink deal, sell records like hotcakes succumbed long ago to a newer paradigm, one that puts the power in the hands of the artist and in the ability of a song to snake its way through the internet’s back alleys and side streets and into the speakers of the masses.
Emile Mover was conceived in Miami Beach, born in Montreal, raised in Toronto and currently residing in New York City set her songs off on their journey not long ago. Without a label, an agent, or any of the accoutrements of that outmoded model. But in their short lifespan they’ve already found the ears discerning music fans the world over, not to mention music supervisors — check the recent Sears spot, and you’ll hear Mover’s delicate acoustic strum and that soft, supple voice; tune in on any given week to Grey’s Anatomy and the soundtrack could be here. Born to jazz saxophonist Bob Mover, it’s no wonder Emile has the gift. Witness it yourself via the beautifully-drawn video for “No Words” below.
