Episode Summary

Emily Wells
Safe from the rain inside Indianapolis' Big Car Service Center, Emily Wells paints us a portrait of the 21st century one-man band. First and foremost, she's not a man, so let's break down that barrier, shall we? The new term to use is "one-person band." Doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. Hmmm. I'll get back to you on that. But "one-man band" is out. Moving on, she blends modern music technology with the classical technique of actually playing instruments. Behind her wall of keyboards, lie a handful of instruments including a violin and three pieces of a drum set. With the exception of the drums, everything gets looped as she performs. Anyone who goes to see Wells in concert gets to witness her "building" the songs as she performs them, and it's quite spectacular process to watch. The end result of her work is remarkable, but her way of getting there is arguably the most enjoyable part of her performance.moreless
