"The best musicians are the true storytellers. The people who need to sing in order to feel whole and treat lyrics like breaths of fresh air to the lungs of a dying soul. They climb on any stage and just play. Stage prep and theatrics are left at the door, and all you get is a story with a beautiful voice behind it. St. Louis musician Emily Wallace is one of those trusted storytellers." Dan Buffa, KSDK.
Singer/songwriter Emily Wallace has quickly become one of the most talked about performers in St. Louis. Together with her sister, she co-founded The Sleepy Rubies, whose opening performance at the 2016 LouFest is still garnering waves of acclaim. 2016 also saw Wallace write “South City,” a moving tribute to her beloved neighborhood that was hailed by the Riverfront Times as being “the anthem we’ve been waiting for.” For her Bistro debut, she’s gathered a remarkable group of friends and musicians to join her, including the Funky Butt Horns (Aaron Chandler, Adam Hucke, & Austin Cebulski), Nathan Jatcko (keys), Jim Peters (guitar), and Tony Barbata (drums).
