Bio

Founded in 2003 at a crossroads between Los Angeles and the infamous Inland Empire, emith (“the good life”) is an original band of the old and new, of humor and sadness, of the pristine and the profane. The band plays both as an acoustic duo, featuring new songwriter emith on vocals and guitar, and highly respected guitarist Stevie Gurr (Dr. John, Elvin Bishop, and others) on guitar, bass and harmonica, and also as a full band supplemented by various local favorites on bass and drums.

emith’s style of music features melodic, haunting influences from rock, folk, country, blues, and Celtic genres. One of the members of Peter Paul and Mary, apparently so overcome with a powerful inspiration in writing one of his songs, once started a foundation for songs that are inspired by spirits “calling from a distant place.” This is the kind of music emith features, ethereal but rootsy, lyrically compelling but catchy, and full of humor, passion and a wry sex appeal. The band brings a modern energy to melodies that sound as if they were written centuries ago. Accessible by both youthful and mature audiences, emith is a fresh new arrival producing compelling songs and an in-the-flesh impression that is hard to forget.
