We've already expressed our love for the raw, crooning, sometimes crazy, yet always infectious guitars of EMA. But we can't help but gush. There's no truer style icon than a girl who plays by her own rules—musical and otherwise—so we had to sit down and pick the brain of this wild-child who hails from Sioux Falls, South Dakota, but has now made her home on the road. Formerly a member of the noise-rock band Gowns, EMA has since gone solo and is just wrapping up a US tour for her debut album, "Past Life Of Martyred Saints." With a wide range of styles including goth, punk, noise, and folk, it's no surprise that this bad girl's style is as diverse as her music. Click through to check out our little chat with EMA to find out what she's listening to, where her favorite NYC venues are, and to admire her amazing Goodwill finds. Make sure to pump up the volume while you flip through!
