Emit Bloch Biography (Wikipedia)

Emit Bloch (alt David Edmund Turin; 8 September 1965) is an American songwriter and musician.

Emit Bloch is a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter and musician known for field recordings and lo-fi music production. His parents are George L. Turin, a professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at UC Berkeley, and Helen Elizabeth Turin, the daughter of a prominent Utah cattle rancher. Bloch was raised in Berkeley, California, as well as Layton, Utah, and is related to Christopher Layton, a prominent 19th Century Mormon pioneer.

Bloch has issued several critically acclaimed releases, with his 2010 release Dictaphones Vol. 1 garnering 5/5 stars in UNCUT, the magazine calling Bloch an "exceptional songwriter" and the release "utterly remarkable", as well as frequent radio play on BBC stations when it was issued on One Little Indian records. London's The Sun called the record "...fresh, vital, uncluttered and brilliant" and awarded it 4.5/5 stars.

The subsequent digital EP, "Dorothy," included some studio versions of songs on Dictaphones Vol. 1 and received UK-wide acclaim when it was selected by The London Times as "Hot Download of the Week" and its eponymous single was championed by Dermot O'Leary, Gideon Coe and several other mainstream BBC DJs.
