Biography

Ezra Reich is a native New Yorker, now based in Los Angeles, whose music has been described as "Beatles meets Prince" (NY Noise) and compared to "Everything from Bryan Ferry to the Cars" (TimeOut London), with songwriting that "reminds you of the value of melody" (Indieville). Most recently LA artist Juli Crockett wrote, "Ezra Reich’s music is (in my opinion) like John Maus arm-wrestling David Lynch in a Technicolor water ballet" .Here are some things that happened: In 2003, "Behind the Scenes", from Reich's first album Freeze the Night, was featured on AOL Music's First break, with the song being downloaded thousands of times. In early 2004, Reich's music was the theme to a national advertising campaign for Tommy Hilfiger's "H" Line, featuring David Bowie. Ezra spent the rest of the year co-producing his second record, Milkshake Arcade, with Ron A. Shaffer (Ambulance Ltd., Tricky). In early 2006, Reich debuted new material at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, backed by horn and string accompaniment. This would mark the begining of his use of an all female string quartet as a permanent part of the live show. Ezra has toured the UK, played South by Southwest and performs regularly in both New York City and, now, Los Angeles.

Lyrics

Emily

Written By: Ezra Reich

There's a feeling taking over me
and nobody knows but they can see
things will never be the way they used to be so be my girl

emily come and take my hand and stand right next to me
your the only woman that i want to see
and thats how to be
my girl

and suddenly a wash of emotions taking over me
please dont make me cry for all the world to see
that's not how to be
my girl

feeling the pain
alone in the dark
turn it away
and tear it apart

Emily your the apple of my eye so come stand next to me
please dont make me cry for all the world to see
that's not how to be my girl

There's a feeling taking over me
and nobody knows but they can see
things will never be the way they used to be so be my girl

feeling the pain
alone in the dark
turn it away
and tear it apart

Emily your the apple of my eye so come stand next to me
please dont make me cry for all the world to see
that's not how to be my girl there's something I must say
please don't look the other way
it's alright, just stay with me
I love you darling

Emily your the apple of my eye so come stand next to me
please dont make me cry for all the world to see
that's not how to be my girl
