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.

    If the similar groups are not similar at all, the listeners of Emilie could just start to listen groups who sound more like her project, through recommendations in this message box. Or maybe you could just not bother at all and just listen to whatever you want, IMO I honestly don't think this is much of a big deal.

    talking about similarities.... you should check RoBERT, a french singer. Her "Princesse de rien" album is quite similar to Emilie's for atmospheres and overall sound, a little bit softer maybe. Give her a go. http://www.lastfm.it/music/Robert

    I think it's also based on how many listeners of EA listen to Angelspit (I guess there are quite a lot..). Or is it not like that?

    @ThemisNyx sometimes the high similarity is linked to bands who got the same label, in this case angelspit collaborated to an ep (they did a remix for emilie) so they are on top

    Am I the only one wondering why Angelspit is at the top of her "similar artists"? I don't really see any similarities...

    Ela está na gravação do Devils Carnival II agora. Mas eu queria álbum novo, não um filme. Não gosto muito da FLAG era, e tampouco gosto das letras feminazi.
