Emily Wolfe w/ The Minks
Austin, TX’s resident rocker, Emily Wolfe transcends the ranks of ordinary musicians. Her creative songwriting keeps her fans aglow thanks to her strong, powerful lead vocals and dominating guitar style. Wolfe has shared stages with the likes of Heart, The Pretenders and Gary Clark Jr.
Emily Wolfe, a self-taught guitar player starting at the age of 5, has honed her craft over the past 22 years and continues to take her playing to the next level. After self-releasing her EP “Roulette” in 2014 followed by single “Atta Blues” in 2016, Emily used 2017 and 2018 to strategize and write new music. She released a debut self-titled, full-length album in February 2019, produced by Ben Tanner of the Alabama Shakes.
Wolfe has been described as a sonic merging of PJ Harvey and Jack White and is guaranteed to not disappoint early fans who are already along for the ride to greatness. Featured by the Wall Street Journal, MTV, NPR, and American Songwriter, Emily Wolfe is definitely one to watch.

Mixed with raw, jangly instrumentation and soulful saccharine vocals, it’s as much a throwback as it is an answer to the often overlooked underbelly of Nashville’s rock and roll scene. Frontwoman Nikki Barber began writing and recording songs in a makeshift, basement studio at a young age. She decided to move to Nashville where Barber created the rock and roll, four piece band, The Minks. With the same innovative “garage rock” spirit she started out with, Barber, alongside coproducer Joe Bissiri, began recording her debut album, Light & Sweet, at her home in Nashville Light & Sweet is about finding the silver lining amongst the madness- a timely call to arms about staying positive in a world that can often times feel bleak. “I wrote these songs as I was living on my own for the first time and calling out the bullshit within my life.
