Sweet & Sour Rock & Roll with a great big Hit of Country Soul.
Replacing Jeff Buckley as lead singer of Gary Lucas’ Gods & Monsters, Emily burst onto the NYC scene in 1996 and labeled “The Leather Lederhosen Lady of The Blues.” Breaking out on her own as a gifted songwriter and guitarist, Emily has been called the ‘perfectly cool combo of Lucinda Williams meets Patti Smith,’ offering street-smart poetry and a thrilling and authentic vocal style that conjures moods & images that seduce and beguile.
“I’ve listened to Emily in admiration for many years. Her melancholy-with-a-backbeat, expertly woven songs are seductive and strong.” – Rosanne Cash
Emily will release a new record (on CD & Vinyl) this Friday March 24, 2017 that was recorded at FAME in Muscle Shoals, Alabama with her band, featuring Scott Aldrich on lead guitar, Skip Ward on bass and Kenny Soule on drums.
