Emily Portman: The Glamoury
Emily Portman is a singer, writer and concertina player from Glastonbury, hailed one of the new British folk scene’s most beguiling presences. With her 2010 debut album ‘The Glamoury’ gaining her two BBC Folk Award nominations, Emily is fast gaining a reputation for her songwriting and ‘lark-like’ voice. Inspired by the darker underbelly of folklore and balladry, Emily weaves harmony-rich narratives of both the magical and the monstrous.
Emily’s debut solo album ‘The Glamoury’ has been received with overwhelming critical acclaim, with The Observer hailing it ‘A remarkable and original debut’ and Radio 2’s Mike Harding calling it ‘ the raw stuff of the great ballads. Inspired by the darker underbelly of folklore and balladry, Emily weaves harmony-rich narratives of both the magical and the monstrous, accompanied by viola player Lucy Farrell (fresh from touring with The Unthanks) and Harpist Rachel Newton of The Shee. These visceral visions of a darker Albion conjure landscapes where mythical sirens collide in urban backstreets. ‘The Glamoury’ made Mojo and fRoots top ten Folk albums of the year - and it proved to be a hit in the WMN office too!
'Tongue-Tied' appears on WMN's Rough Guide to English Folk.
