KnightressM1, from Oakland CA, is the brainchild of violinist, vocalist, pianist and composer Emily Palen. Driven by a relentless need for emotional freedom, her lyrics bare witness to life’s cruelties while alchemizing suffering into exponential growth. Music plays a profound role as humanity teeters at the crossroads between ultimate destruction and radical evolution. KnightressM1 strives to be a powerful voice for those oppressed either by country or lover.
