Empress Of - Don't Tell Me The Brooklyn-based artist proves she’s an enchanting talent, with or without the virtual smoke and mirrors.
Maintaining a healthy balance between faceless internet artistry and personable, up-front talent, Brooklyn singer-songwriter Empress Of (AKA Lorely Rodriguez) makes us fall for her all over again in this guard-down acoustic performance of her debut single Don’t Tell Me.
Empress Of first appeared on Dummy back when her “colourminutes” project impressed us a couple of months ago; brief and scintillating, the audio-visual Youtube project was a great taster of what the imaginative new artist had to offer. Now, this live video from Yours Truly shows that even without the helping hand of a clever online release strategy, this is one performer whose delicate, careful power speaks for itself. Watch it above.
