Emery

"Emo" has so quickly become the trendy new music catchphrase for the recent influx of rock resurgence that it has nearly lost its entire significance as the emotional filled rock it originated from. So many bands have been quick to claim the title, yet hold it with little or no passion. Enter Emery. Not only are they recapturing the definitive meaning of the genre by abounding deep emotion between their intense variance in dynamics and layered vocal beauty, but their feelings are backed by passionate beliefs in love, faith, and hope, making their emotions not only compelling, but full of ...read more

"Emo" has so quickly become the trendy new music catchphrase for the recent influx of rock resurgence that it has nearly lost its entire significance as the emotional filled rock it originated from. So many bands have been quick to claim the title, yet hold it with little or no passion. Enter Emery. Not only are they recapturing the definitive meaning of the genre by abounding deep emotion between their intense variance in dynamics and layered vocal beauty, but their feelings are backed by passionate beliefs in love, faith, and hope, making their emotions not only compelling, but full of genuine sentiment as well. And "genuine" is a prime adjective that comes to mind upon meeting the six gracious, southern-bred boys that comprise Emery. Whereas some groups save their passion for the stage, Emery's enthusiasm is relevant both in and out of the spotlight. "We wanna show people that love is the greatest thing, not in a worldly way, but just a compassionate way. That's our message,? explains drummer, Seth Studley. And with their recent signing to Tooth & Nail Records, their opportunities to reach a larger audience with that message are growing. Begun in South Carolina, Emery was formed when the six recent college graduates decided to pursue music full-time. Upon making their decision, they also uprooted to move across country to Seattle in search of a more diverse music scene. "We actually left for Seattle at 7:30am on September 11, 2001," recounts Studley, "We didn't hear about the attacks (on the World Trade Center) until we were in North Carolina. We stopped to get some food and the waitress, who was somehow misinformed, told us that tourists were attacking New York. We later found out that she meant terrorists. It was an intense day to move across the country." The intensities become more positive as time passed and the band settled to find their niche in the Seattle music scene. In a matter of months they had won over the staff of Seattle-based Tooth & Nail Records, signed a deal, and recorded their upcoming debut album entitled, "The Weaks End? at Black Lodge Studio in Eudora, Kansas with producer Ed Rose. The songs, carrying a perfect blend of all the depth of hardcore stylings layered with delicate melodies and often times fragile vocal overtones, are not only beautiful but also meaningful. « hide
