Emilie Clepper

Origin: Quebec, Canada / Texas

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: Folk/Country

Half Texan and half Québécoise, Emilie Clepper was born into a musical family of singer-songwriters, with her father-acclaimed Texas songwriter Russell Clepper-hailed as her main influence, with a hint of Leonard Cohen, Kelly Joe Phelps and Paul Simon, blending various other American, Canadian and French folk influences into a style all her own. Her first album, the self-released Things May Come (2008) garnered much praise and won the hearts of thousands of new fans, with her smokey vocals, touching lyrics and soothing folk tones. Singing the joys and pain of life with a rare wisdom and maturity, Emilie Clepper performed as opening act for Feist and was part of the popular tour Toutes les filles. In 2011, the singer-songwriter released her second album, What You See.
