Emily Marks on SoundBetter

Classically trained cellist from the Junior Royal Northern College of Music turned singer-songwriter who can bring the beauty of the cello to your project and craft unusual, ethereal vocals. Featured multiple times on BBC Introducing, my songwriting is a collage of classical, folk and dance elements.

Hey! I'm Emily and I'm a composer and musician from Sheffield, UK. I've studied cello, piano and composition at the Junior Royal Northern College of Music for six years and since graduating, have focused on writing original songs and scores ranging from ambient orchestral soundscapes to driving electronic beats. I've worked creatively as a session cellist, writing and recording string arrangements for new music and also as a session vocalist singing both lead vocals and creating vocal arrangements. I have a good ear for harmony and can craft something unique and unusual for your project.

I love music and the unique canvas it gives you and I hope I can work to create something with you.

Send me a message and we can start from there!

    Incredible talent, a unique voice and friendly collaboration, I highly recommend Emily! She knew how to listen to my remarks and hit the spot right the first time. I can't wait to release this track!!!

  2. Review by Juliana K

    Emily is an incredible artist, and contributed a beautiful topline vocal for one of my projects. Her lyricism, vocal texture, and melodies were perfect, and very inspiring. Not to mention super communicative and easy to work with. Highly recommend!

  3. Review by Tookozy

    Emily has been a pleasure to work with. Very proficient, professional and attentive. She sent me over original lyrics and recordings within days of the request, with a extremely quick handover time. Amendments and adjustments were easy to communicate with Emily. I suspect this won't be the last time I work alongside Emily, she is a very talented individual with a unique voice!

    From Tookozy.

    Emily came through and delivered performances beyond my expectation. She was open to offering some harmonies and made this whole endeavor very collaborative. She responds quickly and professionally and is very talented. Although cello didn't factor for this particular project, I would certainly call on Emily if she were available, and I needed a cellist in the future.

  5. Review by Thomas N.

    An extraordinary understanding of melody and harmony, Emily arranged and recorded beautiful Cello and Vocal parts for my album project. Capable of playing both complex and simple parts, with the same attention to detail in dynamics and texture.

    The tracks were engineered to a professional standard from her home studio.

    Can communicate clearly with musicians from both classical and alternative backgrounds, any project will benefit from her session work.
