Why not Emm Gryner?

Exactly. Emm Gryner is a extremely talented singer and songwriter hailing from lovely Canada. I can't say enough good things about her really, as is the case with most people who know her. We met in Chicago on tour and kept in touch for the past few years. After not seeing her in quite sometime we picked up right where we left off and had a great time. She's constantly writing and playing and doing things like Living Room Tours which really demand your respect. What is the living room tour you may ask? It's something that is really basic - a concert in your living room. You provide the venue and some people to listen - they will play and sell their wares. Pretty cool idea. So, recently I caught up with Emm at one of these living room tours and had a great time. My myspace buddy Trish who also is fond of Emm opened the night. Cass and I took it all in - but I have to admit this - if nothing else - it was a bit akward at first. Being in a house of a person you don't know, with people you don't know is a great, weird, strange feeling all wrapped up with a bowtie. There was a keg, some snacks, actually really good snacks - and of course good music.
Anyway, check out Trish on her myspace page (and Emm too!) - she is very talented - and definitely pick up Emm's and Trish's cds. In the end though, I think that the song I ended up digging the most that I had not previously heard from Emm was this haunting track below. The production values on the version that is on the cd is a little different than live - but still awesome. Live, Emm played just the bass and actually looped it. The minimalism of it was awesome and that is what initially struck as being cool - but the melody to go with it is very cool as well.

Big ups to Jordie as well - that kid knows how to kick - old school. And he's canadian! haha. just kidding big J. Oh, if someone reads this - happens to know his email addy - that would be fantastic. check out what Jordie has happening. dope? yes.
