Kristina Emmott, also known under the stage name willolux is a Canadian singer/songwriter whose musical style is a synthesis of nostalgic indie-folk with modern dream pop. Her introspective, whimsical songs recall the intimate, personal works of singer/songwriters Brandi Carlile, Laura Marling, Ingrid Michaelson, and Regina Spektor.
In December 2015, she began recording new material with producer Jon Anderson (Aidan Knight, Twin Bandit). Stitched together over the course of roughly a year, these recordings feature new soundscapes, both lush and intimate – sometimes grandiose, sometimes subtle. This full-length album, entitled “Thread & Tape”, is set to release June 23, 2017.
