"...quietly confident and roaring with passion. In this uncertain chaotic world, we need voices like Emily Mure to heal us, to remind us who we are, and to give us places to rest our hearts."
- Joe Crookston
On “Sad Songs and Waltzes” (Sept 13, 2019):
“There are a lot of artists out there who suffer from the malady “cover-a-song-but-its-not-as-good-as-the-original-and-you-didn’t-make-it-your-own”-itis. Emily Mure is not one of those artists... She has a penchant for weaving enchanting, vibrant arrangements with her voice and simple guitar patterns. The power and control she has over her voice is a feat to marvel at. Calming and putting you at ease, it sinks you down into a song.” -Red Line Roots
“..Comprised of several cover songs that hold a particular meaning to her, each carefully curated track comes with an emotional resonance comparable to that of her original recordings and showcases the singer-songwriter's knack for interpreting material even when it isn't entirely her own…” -PopMatters
“Reimagining someone else’s work can be a daunting task, but New York City-based singer/songwriter Emily Mure does it with heart-wrenching style and ethereal grace..” -East of 8th
On “Worth” (2017):
"Lovely." -The Boston Globe
“Five songs in, I pulled off the road… The songs had stirred something in me and I felt the need to understand. I was soon on the road again, enclosed in a world Mure had made. While my eyes were awake and alert, my soul was wrapped in a warm cocoon.”
- No Depression
"..a mature and insightful songwriter." -Roots Music Report
"..this is the album to listen to when things feel out of control."
-Adobe and Teardrops
