Called the ‘perfectly cool combo of Lucinda Williams meets Patti Smith,’ Emily Duff’s street-smart poetry and vocal style conjures moods & images that seduce the listener to willingly visit emotional vistas that entice and beguile.  Her Sweet & Sour brand of American Soul, Country Rock and Blues digs deep, weaving a patchwork quilt of sin, tragedy, romance and regret that lies at your feet begging to mended.  A prolific songwriter and humble servant of song, Emily was born in Flushing Queens and raised by a pack of cigarettes.  Her Mama taught her 4 perfect chords and then ran off, leaving Emily to figure the rest out on her own. With a deep love for guitars, Chuck Berry & The Staple Singers, Emily, armed with a hollow body electric guitar and enough anger to level a small country, carved a path straight to CBGBs and never looked back.   She replaced Jeff Buckley as lead singer for Gary Lucas’ Gods & Monsters and had the honor of opening for Bob Dylan & Paul Simon at Jones Beach Amphitheater with her band, Eudora.  After a hiatus to “get straight,” get happy and raise some pretty cute kids, in 2015 she released her debut solo record, ‘GO TELL YOUR FRIENDS,” Produced by Craig Bishop at NY Noise (Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, Joan Osborne, Michelle Branch).

 

Emily Duff performs with with Scott Aldrich at the Amazing Things Arts Center on Dec. 4. Showtime 7:30 PM. Tickets $10
