Emily and The Woods are a London- based band fronted by Emily Wood. The newly shaped London based outfit includes brother Benedict Wood on guitar, Dave Bush on drums and bass player Sam Brown. Since meeting at school, 'the boys' (Wood, Brown and Bush) have been playing as a collective for as long as they could pick up their instruments, with each of them going on to study music.
Developing in a way that far removes the band from the previously labelled 'singer-songwriter' tag, Emily and The Woods' newly honed sound blends luscious vocals with subtle electronic touches. Wood's pensive tone is at the heart of the music, backed by pounding drums, dark and driving bass-lines and shimmering guitars. The 2014 EP 'Then We Collide' followed lead single 'Helios' which gained plays across Gilles Peterson and Lauren Laverne's shows on BBC6 Music, XFM and BBC Radio 1, where it was named Zane Lowe's 'Hype Track'.

Sam Brookes songwriting, immaculate phrasing and powerful vocal delivery reach beneath the skin of an audience. Starting out on the acoustic music scene around his London home, Sam is now successfully spreading his wings across UK and Europe including high profile support shows for Newton Faulkner, Ray Davies, and Lucy Rose.
"There is something of a Tim Buckley about Sam Brookes...a sense of powerful fragility...vast emotional reserves at work" - Andy Gill, The Independent ****
