Incorporating dreamy synth and keys with booming bass and complex rhythmic skeletons, Della Memoria began as an acoustic solo project of vocalist Emily Sholes, who would play locally before combining forces with Josh Smith (bass) and Patrick McGinley (drums). The trio creates soundscapes reminiscent of Chvrches, Daughter, and the xx.

Influenced by singers such as Fiona Apple and Cat Power, Sholes developed a love for singing and songwriting at an early age, which comes across in her haunting vocals and lyrical content.

The trio self-released their debut EP, Beautiful Dream, in November of 2014.
