World-class violinist. Amazing Author. Fashion icon. Famously bipolar. The list goes on, but one thing is certain: You must be talking about Emilie Autumn.
With world tours, glossy magazine covers, and guest spots on the albums of such artists as Courtney Love (with whom she performed on Leno and Letterman), Otep, Billy Corgan, and TVís Metalocalypse under her corset strings, Emilie Autumnís devilishly dark lyrics, metal-shredding violin solos, pink-glittered pasties, and industrial strength voice reinvent ìgothicî for the masses and goths have never had so much fun.
More akin to a Broadway musical than a standard rock performance, the Los Angeles ñ born starletís highly theatrical stage show is a sexy circus of glam-rock burlesque, backed by scantily-clad girl back up singers known to EAís devoted fans as the Bloody Crumpets. Featuring EAís signature electric violin pyrotechnics, heartbreakingly lush orchestrations, hard-core beats, and menacing lyrics growled with enough intensity to make your hair stand on end, the resulting noise is a harpsichord-heavy romp through Victorian Asylums where screaming is allowed and girls always get revenge.
Known for her eccentric style (she makes all of her elaborate fashion ensembles herself) as well as her prodigious musical talent (she began reading notes before learning the alphabet and was already playing violin at four years old), Emilie spent her youth playing concert halls throughout the U.S. and Europe as a classical violinist before going mad, landing herself in an insane asylum, and emerging as a rock singer with a murderous streak.
