Big Leg Emma was formed in the summer of 2001 after long time musical partners Steve Johnson (songwriter/vocals/guitar) and Charity Nuse (songwriter/vocals/mandolin/djembe) met Amanda Barton (fiddle/vocals) through mutual friends. Although musical styles varied, the three immediately melded their sounds to create a unique genre of music mixing folk rock, bluegrass and alternative country.
In April, 2006 they joined forces with Steve French (bass) and Rad Akers (drums). This union created a very energetic sound including influences ranging from progressive rock to hip hop; intensifying BLE’s ability to jam. Our newest member, Steve Davis (keys/organ/vocals) was added in February, 2007. His jazz/funk/blues sty lings completed what is now known as Big Leg Emma. Even though BLE is often described as a Fiery Americana Roots Rock band, they appeal to audiences of all ages and musical preferences. With the front three original members still in place, the addition of the newest members has enabled BLE to reach new ground without losing their original chemistry.

BLE is a nationally touring act that creates their music on feel, vibe, and deep hearted lyrics.
The band's tour schedule has led them from the scenic hills of Western New York to the
Great Northeast, the Midwest, the Deep South, and all points in between. BLE has built a strong following in the festival circuit sharing stages with Rusted Root, 10,000 Maniacs, Gin Blossoms, The Sam Bush Band, The Wailers, Keith Anderson, Los Lobos, Old Crow Medicine Show, Peter Rowan and Donna the Buffalo, just to name a few.

The band is now out in support of their latest CD "Big Leg Emma LIVE", just released in July 2007. Big Leg Emma has grown in many positive, professional and personal ways over the last few years and is looking forward to a great summer! The band will be on tour in a town near you. See YA ALL ON THE DANCE FLOOR!!!
