 New York City, New York, USA
BandAmericanaCountry

Familiar yet distinct & unique, The Emily Duff Band draws from a full decade of 1970's classics and AM radio vibe to deliver a groovey-cool, powerful, lyric-driven, female-fronted leviathan force of catchy Country-pop-rock radio ready tunes that get lodged in your brain like a good first kiss.

Biography

The Emily Duff Band grew up on the classics and pay tribute daily. With great lyrics and infectious melodies, their rhythym driven Americana-Country-Rock draws from a well of many layers. Led Zeppelin, Steve Earle, Marshall Tucker, Moby Grape, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Patti Smith, The Mavericks, Elvis Costello, The Ventures and The Clash are just a few of the bands that The Emily Duff Band love. Em comes from a blues and country background. She replaced Jeff Buckley as the lead singer of Gary Lucas' Gods & Monsters and then went on to front her own group called EUDORA. EUDORA was chosen in 1999 to open for Bob Dylan & Paul Simon at The Jones Beach Ampitheater. Tommy "Schecky" Davis has been playing lead guitar with Emily Duff since the late 90's and is a dead ringer in the ways of Country, Blues, Surf & Rockabilly guitar. His pickin' amazes all and has been known to make a blind man see....Bill Gerstel hails from 3 Teens Kill 4 and is the drummer you always dreamed of. Rock steady, willing to try new stuff, a great guy and super responsible (unheard of!), Ron Ballin rounds out the quartet on bass and is as comfortable playing 5 strings as he is on 4. A great jazz and blues player, Ron is having the time of his life laying back and serving the songs Em writes. He and Bill are locking and rocking the way a rythym section was born to lock and rock. The Emily Duff Band is damn good music.

Lyrics

This is How you Lose Her

Written By: Emily Duff

YOU ALWAYS COME TO ME AFTER SHE’S GONE
CRYIN IN YOUR COFFEE HOW SHE’S DONE YOU WRONG
BUT I’M YOUR FRIEND AND YOU NEED TO HEAR THIS
YOU’RE FOOLING YOURSELF AGAIN

YOU PUSH TOO HARD AND SHE’S GONNA WALK
OR SHUT HER DOWN WHEN SHE NEEDS TO TALK
DON’T RUN AWAY, PLEASE HOLD HER TIGHT
AND LET HER KNOW EVERYTHING’S ALRIGHT

THIS IS HOW YOU WANT HER
THIS IS HOW YOU NEED HER
MAN YOU GOT TO TRUST HER
IN YOUR HEART BELIEVE HER
STOP BEING SO AFRAID
OF LOVE YOU CAN'T REFUSE HER
TAKE A LOOK AT WHO YOU ARE (CAUSE)
THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER

SHE NEEDS THE COMFORT OF TWO STRONG ARMS
YOUR OPEN HEART COULD NEVER DO HER HARM
THE GENTLE KINDNESS THAT ONLY A LOVER BRINGS
NO SHE DOESN’T NEED EXPENSIVE THINGS

THIS IS HOW YOU WANT HER
THIS IS HOW YOU NEED HER
MAN YOU GOT TO TRUST HER
IN YOUR HEART BELIEVE HER
STOP BEING SO AFRAID
OF LOVE YOU CAN’T REFUSE HER
TAKE A LOOK AT WHO YOU ARE
THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER

I’M SORRY YOUR PA WAS SUCH AN ANGRY MAN
AND YOUR MAMA, SHE TOOK IT ALL
BUT YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE LIKE HIM
NO YOU DON’T HAVE TO TAKE THAT FALL

THIS IS HOW YOU WANT HER
THIS IS HOW YOU NEED HER
MAN YOU GOT TO TRUST HER
IN YOUR HEART BELIEVE HER
STOP BEING SO AFRAID
OF LOVE YOU CAN’T REFUSE HER
TAKE A LOOK AT WHO YOU ARE (CAUSE)
THIS IS HOW YOU LOSE HER

That's Life

Written By: Emily Duff

YEAH MY MAN JUST LEFT ME
HE PUT ME ON THE SHELF
LEFT ME CRYIN’ LYIN’ ON THE FLOOR
FEELING SO SORRY FOR MYSELF
NO THIS AIN’T THE FIRST TIME
AND IT WON’T BE THE LAST CAUSE
THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE

OH NO YOU DIDN’T
YOU DIRTY NO GOOD DOG
I BEEN WORKING TOO DAMN HARD
FOR YOU TO COME IN AND STEAL MY JOB
OH NO THIS AIN’T THE FIRST TIME
AND IT WON’T BE THE LAST CAUSE
THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE

SOMEONE’S GOT THE MASTER PLAN
HAVE PATIENCE DON’T FUSS
YOU GET IN AND YOU GET OUT
A LITTLE FAITH A WHOLE LOTTA TRUST
OH NO THIS AIN’T THE FIRST TIME
AND NO IT WON’T BE THE LAST
CAUSE THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE

NO IT AIN’T ALWAYS FAIR
BUT IT’S THE ONE THING THAT WE ALL SHARE
AND THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE
THAT’S LIFE
