Emily Capell Biography
Emily Capell is a singer/songwriter from North East London with a story or ten to share. Raised on a diet of Johnny Cash, The Clash, The Smiths, Mod culture and the top 40, Emily's approach to song writing is eclectic. Featuring a mixture of blues, indie, pop and punk, Emily has been compared to everyone from Jamie T to Kate Nash.
With her band, The Three Pete Suite (three men, all called Pete), Emily has found her tracks played on stations including BBC 6Music and BBC London. DJ's Amy Lame and Gary Crowley are both champions for her, the latter interviewing her on his Amazing Radio show and the former booking her to perform at her long running club night, Duckie. Actor Mat Horne and footballer Joey Barton are also big fans.
Live, Emily performs both solo and with her band. Past festival appearances have included Standon Calling, Down By The River and Dalston Oxjam. As for gigs, the band have played across London and beyond, rheadlining The Queen of Hoxton and taking a monthly Saturday night residency at Proud Galleries, Camden.
To date, Emily has released an EP and two singles. The self released EP, 'Who Framed Winston Silcott?', established the band and its limited edition cassette release through Post/Pop sold out within weeks. The acoustic single, 'Who Killed Smiley Culture?', then followed and enjoyed an enthusiastic response from the media. Most recent single, 'Joey', attracted airplay from both national and local radio and also caused a stir on Youtube with its video quickly gaining thousands of views.
