Emily Bate is a Philadelphia-based singer, composer and harmony fanatic.

Recent projects include choral theater piece Going Down Mount Moriah, and frequent collaborator Erin Markey’s anarcho-musical A Ride on the Irish Cream, which she co-composed and performed in. The music in A Ride on the Irish Cream was “accessible, often punchy pop-rock” (New York Times), whose “soaring musical numbers” (Artforum) were “startlingly gorgeous, and packed with heavenly harmonies” (New York Post).

Current bands include Jonagold, kid rock band The Cat’s Pajamas, and Slow Learner. Other upcoming collaborations include Atomic Family Cabaret with The Bearded Ladies, Destiny Estimate by MJ Kaufman, and music for the film Queer Genius by Catherine Pancake.
