Called the ‘perfectly cool combo of Lucinda Williams meets Patti Smith,’ Emily’s street-smart poetry and vocal style conjures moods & images that seduce the listener to willingly visit emotional vistas that entice and beguile. Her Sweet & Sour brand of American Soul, Rock, Folk and Blues digs deep, weaving a patchwork quilt of sin, tragedy, romance and regret that lies at your feet begging to mended. A prolific songwriter and humble servant of song, Emily was born in NYC and raised by a pack of cigarettes. Her Mama taught her 4 chords and then ran off to figure the rest out on her own. With a deep love for guitars, Chuck Berry & The Staple Singers, Emily carved a path straight to CBGBs and never looked back. Emily replaced Jeff Buckley as lead singer for Gary Lucas’ Gods & Monsters. She also had the honor of opening for Bob Dylan & Paul Simon at Jones Beach Amphitheater. After a hiatus to “get straight,” get happy and raise some pretty cute kids, In 2015 she released her debut solo record, ‘GO TELL YOUR FRIENDS,” Produced by Craig Bishop at NY Noise.
