Many thanks to the LEO Weekly and Never Nervous

My new release Richer for the Grief  has been well received, and I’m happy to announce that Never Nervous recently named the EP their Album of the Week and the LEO Weekly named “Home Videos” one of their favorite local songs of the month!

Recently I had the opportunity to talk with Phillip Olympia in detail about co-producing the record with Zack Kouns,

There are so many amazing musicians in Louisville, and I’m proud to be part of this community. I’m feeling the love and it’s mutual!

Richer for the Grief

I recorded this raw and beautiful collaborative EP with my friend Zack Kouns—an hermetic hillbilly/experimental musician—out in his home in rural Appalachia during the winter of 2015.

A couple of these tracks were released on comps last year while I was touring, but I wanted to share a few more from our sessions.

Jack Scally was kind enough to let me use his painting “Tired of the Ghosts” for the cover art.

We Have a Bevin Problem: A Kentucky Music Comp

In January of 2015, I recorded with experimental/noise/hermetic hillbilly musician Zack Kouns. I’m happy that one of the songs from those sessions has found a good home on the We Have a Bevin Problem – A Kentucky Music Compilation, an all digital protest album and fundraiser for Planned Parenthood of Kentuckiana.

This track is explicit, folks, and if you’re conservative or religious, you’ll probably find it offensive or even clickbait worthy.

But if you’re a lapsed Catholic (like me), you might also enjoy the ir/reverence and iconography.

Head Cleaner – A Louisville Music Compilation

Gubbey Records Presents: Head Cleaner – A Louisville Music Compilation Vol. 7, 8, 9. 10, & 11. Album art by Matthew Humble.

My song “Seen and Not Heard” will appear on the Gubbey Records’ 2015 Head Cleaner Compilation under the nom de plume No Knack Emma.

The compilation features 9 hours of music from 188 Louisville bands on 3 cassettes and 2 additional download sets.

Gubbey Records will be presenting release shows at Modern Cult Records on December 11th and December 12th. The compilation costs $17 and will probably only be available at these shows (as it’s sold out quickly in the past).

100% of the show proceeds go directly to Louisville’s progressive non-profit radio station A R T x F M as well as $2 from every Head Cleaner sold.
