I’ve heard a lot of good things about Bedroom pop artist Emily Reo from fellow music bloggers and music fans, and everything they said was true.

Reo kicked off day 2 of Basilica Soundscape, captivating myself and the rest of the audience in the North Hall. While her set is composed of electronic compositions built around loops, vocal effects, its power is rooted from a natural songwriting ability that shines through everything else.

She played tracks off of her 2013 album Olive Juice, including highlights “Wind,” “Peace,” and her cover of Built To Spill’s “Car.” She finished with an new song that featured impressive vocals and layers that she built to an incredible cathartic finish. Based on that song, I can’t wait to see what Reo releases in the future.
