Clint Michigan (Record Release Party)

Emily Danger was formed in New York after a sold-out cabaret show of oddball covers and original music written by lead vocalist Emily Nicholas. The band regularly addresses social, political, and feminist issues in their songs and desire to connect to their audience as well as inspire change with their words.The entire band is classically trained and joined forces to shed their former conservatory backgrounds and create orchestral, dark rock ‘n’ roll. Emily's powerful vocals compliment Cameron's violin virtuosity to create the band's unique sound. Their live show combines a myriad of electronics, a host of instruments and Nicholas' over four octave voice with a Patti Smith meets Bjork presence. Their music videos are as haunting as their music "pushing uncomfortable buttons and stirring your emotions as strongly and slowly as the sounds of Emily Danger themselves." They have been featured in the BBC Music Video Festival, IMVF in Paris, and Baeble Music. The band recently played SXSW, has toured the US and Canada twice and are releasing 2 EPs in July and October of this year.
David King's sound borrows from shambled yearnings of Paul Westerberg,
the soaked and sparkling Jesus and Mary Chain ‘Peel Sessions’ and Tom
Waits’ primitivism, while lyrically he’s often compared with the
social conscience of Bob Dylan and the poetry and dark storytelling of
Nick Cave, via the frenetic delivery of the Modern Lovers. The results
are primal, literate, dramatic and at once, distant and familiar. As a
teacher of Creative Writing and Literature, it’s no coincidence that
his reviews contain words like “poetic” and “glorious”, or that his
songwriting has been the subject of features on literary blogs.
