The Emma Hounding

Sure firefly's debut album is an indie-rock songbook about the arc of love and a relationship, from first kiss to fiery disintegration. Unrehearsed and spontaneous found-recordings from the lovers' songwriting sessions (a duo known as "Buckshot and Laserbeam") link the tale of their time together, sharing a tiny pioneer's cabin in a little mountain town called Emma. Sure firefly draws from genres as diverse as down-tempo electronica to gypsy punk to tell the story.

The Emma Hounding was produced by Barry Gereb and Guy Welles, recorded at Echo Ranch Recording by Guy Welles, mixed by Justin Peacock at The Hook Factory and mastered by Brian Gardner.



Sure firefly draws it's musical melange from artists whose backgrounds include; Classical, R&B, Indie-Folk, Indie-Rock, Gypsy Punk, Performance Art, Jam Bands, and Blues.

Songwriter and lyricist for the band, Barry Gereb was the alternate finalist in the 2009 Susanne Millsaps songwriter showcase at the Founders Title Folk & Bluegrass Festival in Snowbird, Utah. This led to a three month songwriting sabbatical at Subterranean Studios in Snowmass Colorado, laying the groundwork for a collection of songs written over the course of a year and through the arc of a relationship. This collection of songs has become sure firefly's debut release.

The talented and diverse contributors include members (and former members) of the following bands; DeVotchKa, Blue Man Group,The Fray, Rose Hill Drive, New Monsoon TAARKA, Expedition Quartet and ThaMuseMeant, Nona Hendryx and more.
