With powerful vocals and fierce guitar playing, Emilee South hollers throwback rhythm & blues, with hints of voodoo, unrequited love, fevers & late-nights.
Emilee’s new EP, ‘MOTEL’, is filled with throwback rock’n’roll, & crooning soul. The heaving, beaten up body of the record was tracked live to tape over two days at The Aviary Recording Studio. Engineered by Fraser Montgomery, it features Matt Dixon on baritone guitar, Ben Franz on double bass, and Joshua Barber on drums. Including a slew of special guest vocalists, (Broads, Al Parkinson, Skyscraper Stan & Ben Woolley) it lays comfortably on a bed of velvet backing vocals.
“Emilee South is soon to be the name on everyone’s lips. Motel is a definite highlight of this year’s local releases, and you need it in your life.” 9/10 - Beat Magazine ‘MOTEL’ was released with a bang through Fever Shake Records, and launched at The Gasometer on Saturday the 13th of May, to a roaring, sold-out crowd. Emilee South & Band are hitting the road, and checking in ‘MOTEL’ all over the country, from May through to August.
