GRAMMY® award-winning singer-composer-bassist Esperanza (Emily)Spalding has announced her newest project, Emily's D+Evolution. Rekindling herchildhood interest in theater, poetry and movement, this new project delves intoa broader concept of performance.Originally conceived the day before her birthday, during a "sleepless night of fullmoon inspiration", Emily's D+Evolution will be performing all new material thatEsperanza says "unfolds as live musical vignettes.”
"Emily is my middle name, and I'm using this fresh persona as my innernavigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity,and using it as a compass to move forward and expand." says Spalding. "My hopefor this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicythemes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we playthem, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies."
