She’s witty, crisp, and talented, the perfect listen for early summer nights, for blues and joy alike. Emma-Lee Moss (stage name Emmy the Great), born in Hong Kong but brought up in England, is yet another product of the British folk revival that spawned Laura Marling, Johnny Flynn, Stornoway, and many others.

Her voice is clear and sweet, masking storylike but charmingly snarky lyrics that paint the picture of an unapologetic realist, a no-bullshit romantic, and an introspective dreamer, all wrapped into one fresh, folky bundle of acoustic bliss.

To catch a glimpse of her greatness, you can see Emmy at Hotel Utah on June 12. Not in town Friday? Here’s the rest of her tour.
