Emily Millard is a Canadian singer/songwriter whose unique blend of art-folk has been called “inventive,” “haunting” and “beautifully ethereal.” Alchemically combining poetry with vintage keys, steel strings and found- instruments, Emily braves the space between silence and sound with her unmistakable voice.

Over the past ten years, Emily has released four records under the moniker Miss Emily Brown. Her new album By Heron & By Season is her first release under her birth name. Produced by Sandro Perri, the album features some of Canada’s most innovative instrumentalists including violinist Jesse Zubot (Tanya Tagaq), cellist Peggy Lee (Veda Hille), drummer Dan Gaucher (Fond Of Tigers, Woodpigeon) and bassist Colin Nealis (Andy Shauf).

From the wildly percussive “Snake Charmer” to the magical musical forest of “Hunter,” By Heron & By Season is an intimate and courageous exploration of inner and outer nature.

"Millard's complex sonic world is all her own. We are lucky to take part in the trip. (9/10)"


"'Art-folk’ is certainly an apt handle for Millard’s work, as this is a greatly artistic recording, carefully crafted like the considered brushstrokes of a painting."
