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
