Ema and Her Lady Parts/ July 9, 2011
July 9, 2011
We met up with Ema and her hilariously named band of ladies (although I’m sure not many would argue that her previous band “The Ghosts” was, if not a cooler, at least a more easily digestible moniker), at Mary and Eli’s house in Eagle Rock on a Saturday morning (before it started getting too hot). There were snacks. It was laid back (obviously). We hung out in the garage, they played a couple tunes, and then we discussed what Mary and Eli were going to call their latest project (which, for those wondering, they went with “Dawn of Sequins.” Epic.).
I actually had talked to Ema a couple years back about doing an Ema and the Ghosts session, though nothing ever happened with that. But she’s still at it, writing great songs with unique arrangements (no, not your typical instrumentation) and honing in that winsome voice. Backed now by a few great players (and familiar LA faces), we can only hope to see these ladies out more frequently.
