Emily Plays was born in Pavia, Italy, in the Autumn of 2002. The band started as a duo with Sara Poma (vocals and guitars) and Luca Nicoli (guitars). For two years the duo recorded some acustic lo-fi tracks for a self produced album called 'I Don't Like Your Sense Of Humor (And I Don't Get You'). After a one year hiatus, Emily Plays includes Sara Poma only. In 2006 Sara meets fellow townie Morning Telefilm, aka Emanuele Gatti from News For Lulu.
