A live recording of our educational podcast The Sounds The Stories with EMÆL.
Difficult to label, they have been dubbed “indie chamber pop” by San Diego’s Tim Pyles of 91XFM and “pushing music to new boundaries“ by David Pack of Ambrosia. EMÆL is an eclectic quintet that has converged many genres of music ranging from their classical roots to indie/alt-pop influences. They have been compared to bands like Alt-J, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Radiohead. Orange County natives, they have shared their unique sound opening for artists such as Young the Giant, Diplo, David Benoit, Kansas, Juicy J, New Politics, Beat Connection and many more. Multi-instrumentalist frontman Emmanuel Ventura-Cruess assembled the band from his most talented friends in 2014. EMÆL has spent the last two years developing their debut album “Glasswork”, working with Grammy nominated producer/mixer Itai Shapira.
