Emily told The Arkansas Democrat Gazette, “I’m ready to go. I have our tour van in my driveway and I just go out and stare at it because I want to be gone, I want to be on the road, going to the next venue. It’s just so much fun touring with my bass player and drummer. We’re like best friends and we’re always laughing.”

Emily is bringing her new album Outlier, released in Summer 2021 to life on this tour. The LP has been lauded across radio and press including The Austin American-Statesman who said, “The record combines the rock & roll intensity of tunes such as ‘Damage Control’ and ‘Cover of Virtue’ with more pop-leaning tracks ‘Vermillion Park’ and lead single ‘Something Better,’ while Wolfe takes adventurous turns on electronica-influenced numbers ‘LA/NY’ and “No Man.” Wolfe’s often blazing guitar runs balance against compellingly melodic vocals that range from scorching to soothing.”

Idobi Radio said, “The album is sticky & sweet; the bass rings in your ears and the songs make their way into your brain ’til you’re craving more. If ‘LA NY’ and ‘Never Gonna Learn’ don’t get you yelling ‘hot damn, this slaps’ are you sure your volume is turned up high enough?”

Parade Magazine praised Emily, “Not only a showcase for her formidable guitar chops, Outlier perfectly spotlights Wolfe’s commanding vocal presence and newly expanded range. On the album’s radiant lead single ‘Something Better,’ for instance, her voice drifts from tender to tough and back again with incredible grace, exponentially amplifying the song’s mood of dreamy longing.”

The 10-track LP Outlier was recorded in Los Angeles, produced by Michael Shuman, of Queens of the Stone Age and Mini Mansions, in his home studio. Emily and Michael, along with her longtime bandmates, Evan Nicholson (bass) and Clellan Hyatt (drums),took inspiration from a myriad of genres as they laid down the tracks. Wolfe explained to American Songwriter, “Outlier is my attempt at mixing genres I love,” citing pop, classic rock, and ’90s grunge. The goal, she says, “was to create an album that stood the test of time.”

More tour dates to be announced soon for late 2021 and throughout 2022.
