Called the perfectly cool combo of Lucinda Williams meets Patti Smith, EMILY DUFF‘s street-smart poetry and vocal style conjure moods & images that seduce the listener to visit emotional vistas that entice and beguile. Her SWEET & SOUR ROCK AND ROLL WITH A GREAT BIG HIT OF COUNTRY SOUL digs deep, weaving a patchwork of sin, tragedy, romance and regret that lies at your feet begging to be mended. “Emily Duff clothes her plainspoken truth about the difficulties of love and life in a straight-from-the-soul rocking vibe that wont allow you to sit still. Duff turns her heart loose on her songs, turning every musical style she touches into a gift. (Henry Carrigan, NO DEPRESSION).
Emily replaced Jeff Buckley as lead singer for Gary Lucas’ Gods & Monsters and had the honour 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, Emily released her debut solo record (2015), “GO TELL YOUR FRIENDS,” Produced by Craig Bishop at NY Noise (Rosanne Cash, Shawn Colvin, Joan Osborne, Michelle Branch). Emily followed that up with “MAYBE IN THE MORNING,” (2017) recorded at FAME in Muscle Shoals, AL and produced by Craig Bishop, receiving 5 stars in Country Music UK Magazine and in 2019 released HALLELUJAH HELLO also made at FAME, Produced by John Gifford III and featuring an All-Star Band of veteran Muscle Shoals, AL Musicians including members of the original FAME GANG.
June 2020, Emily released “BORN ON THE GROUND,” produced by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel and possibly Emily’s most rockin’ & revealing record yet which has been called “expertly crafted and perfectly executed,” as well as “a Best of Contender for the Year” and garnering Emily the title of “Breakout Artist for 2020.”
Emily went back into the studio with Roscoe during the extended lockdown in New York and produced her latest album ‘Razor Blade Smile’ – release date 23rd July 2021 which is already getting amazing reviews!
Country Music People Magazine describes Emily as a “Country Punk Poet” with an “uncompromising attitude, attractive melodies, a tremendous country soul vibe” and “a vulnerable side”
Maximumvolumemusic.com gave the album 9/10 and said “Emily Duff to me will be the torchbearer for this generation, following the likes of Emmylou Harris and Lucinda Williams.”
