December 5th, 2012 Emily Rodgers and Erik Cirelli did an unplugged show at Odonolds Pub in Youngstown Ohio, and afterwards Emily and I talked about music and her writing. I was initially impressed with Emily’s music when I seen her set at the Sam Goodwill CD Release Party at Cedars in Youngstown. Her music is trance inducing, gentle and somber; much like the sounds of Mazzy Star it should be bundled with in-scents and candles. Her vocal melodies are very loyal and disciplined in how they stay home with the ambient flow of cascading guitars while Erik’s tasteful embellishing really decorates Emily’s relentless repeating turbine guitar progressions. Please head to MISRArecords.com to pick up her CD “Bright Day.” I enjoyed talking with her about voice technique, her performance at SXSW, and truly appreciated her interest in my music and my history. Among 35 episodes with the exception of a few, this interview was more of a two way discussion. #enjoyable.
