Biography

Emilie Autumn Liddell (born on September 22, 1979), better known by her stage name Emilie Autumn, is an American singer-songwriter, poet, and violinist. Autumn draws influence for her music—the style of which she has alternatively labeled as “Victoriandustrial” and glam rock—from plays, novels, and history, particularly the Victorian era. Performing with her all-female backing band The Bloody Crumpets, Autumn incorporates elements of classical music, cabaret, electronica, and glam rock with theatrics, and burlesque.

Growing up in Malibu, California, she began learning the violin at the age of four and left regular school five years later with the goal of becoming a world-class violinist; she practiced eight or nine hours a day and read a wide range of literature. Progressing to writing her own music, she studied under various teachers and went to Indiana University, which she left over issues regarding the relationship between classical music and the appearance of the performer. Through her own independent label Traitor Records, Autumn debuted with her classical album On a Day: Music for Violin & Continuo, followed by the release in 2003 of her album Enchant.

She appeared in singer Courtney Love’s backing band on her 2004 America’s Sweetheart tour and returned to Europe. She released the 2006 album Opheliac with the German label Trisol Music Group. In 2007, she released Laced/Unlaced; the re-release of On a Day… appeared as Laced with songs on the electric violin as Unlaced.

    I, too, instantly fell in love with Enchant at first listen and had a really hard time to accept the change between that album and Opheliac. But I have always liked everything she has released, including Laced/Unlaced, A Bit o' This and That and the EPs. Even the Liar/Dead Is the New Alive EP. FLAG I thought was awesome then, and I still do, and I actually think I like it more than Enchant, which is an achievement indeed. But then again, I really like concept albums and FLAG tells a great story, which is even better when you know that it's based at least a bit on real life.

    When I listened to Enchanted I instantly fell in love with it. It took a bit of time to get use to the Ophelia album, although Laced/Unlaced was an instant favorite when I listened to it. FLAG is alright, I wonder what areas she'll explore next if she records a new album.

    I think, for a while I forgot the poetry behind every chord in her music.
