Name: Jamie Wells

Profession: admin by day, actor/singer/songwriter by night

Current project: a song about sad love

Website: www.jamie-wells.com

What makes you happy: surprises, eye-contact, the staticky noise from a record player, music that rips your heart out, stories that change you, people who dare greatly but stay kind, a room with a view, aaaand sour patch kids

What is something you want to tell people but it sounds real douchey of you: I think I'm doing pretty good for a home-schooled girl who wasn't allowed to wear jeans, plan for college, go on dates, or listen to music with a rock beat.

What are you afraid of: spiders, fundamentalist cults, that creepy Elmo dude in Times Square

What are you wearing. Right. Now. Go: pink slouchy sweater, black maxi skirt, black boots

I say: Childhood. Summer. You say: glass bottles of Dr. Pepper on great-grandma's front porch

Wish you had the guts to: chop off all my hair

Working with EMMA: EMMA is like an eye-doctor. When all you can see is blurry and distorted and flawed... Emma lifts the lens, turning, adjusting, catching the light-- til you see what she can see-- the art and beauty of human vulnerability.
