Album Notes
Emily has been a self-described "music addict" since the age of 7 (the year she received her first guitar). At the age of 27, she has been playing music and singing for over 20 years now. Her debut album, "My Tears Will Be Relieved", is a testament to her love of Southern music. "My Tears" is heavily influenced by Emily's three big loves: Traditional Country, Country Blues, and Tejano. This is truly Texas songwriting!

Raw and honest
Forget the sugar coating. Give me country raw and honest. That's what Emily has done with this fine album. Now, quit reading and buy it.

Rich Fall

Keeping country music honest
Emily Herring has released an uapologetic, hard-working, traditional country albums. If you listen real closely you can hear a hint of traditional rythm and blues (and I think it's there on purpose.)

You'll get chills as she belts out her vocals without fear or reluctance. Her voice conveys honest feeling before you have a chance to pay attention to the powerful words. This CD will deffinitely be found next to old Merl in my collection.

Thanks Emily for keeping country music honest.


No Frills hard hittin Country!
This girl has a unique voice, writes great songs and plays hard hittin tunes. If you like Townes, Hank, Sleepy John Estes and all that stuff you will love this album, so many different moods on this album but they all fit like a glove!
Definitely gonna do big things!

A truly stimulating CD; it challenges the intellect!
Experiencing an album this good has a downside. If I hadn't been fortunate enough to have heard about it via word of mouth, I would have missed out on its many delights. Ms. Herring addresses a wide range of personal feelings and social issues, forcing the listener to become actively engaged with all that life has to offer. It's clear that Emily isn't trying to tell the listener WHAT to think--rather, I sense that she is vitally committed to provoking new insights, different ways of looking at time-worn events and scenarios. The musical support--Herring on vox and assorted acoustic and electric guitars with occasional support on drums and accordion--is spare but perfectly suited to Herring's literate type of songcraft. Even the two non-original compositions--the Mississippi John Hurt blues dirge, "Let the Mermainds Flirt With Me," and the rootsy traditional, "(Don't) Step It Up and Go"--seem cut from the same cloth as the other selections. You are not likely to hear a better album in the alternative (I'm not referring to buzz-rock cliches here) singer/songwriter vein this year! Yes, Herring's vocal delivery comes across as a bit mannered at times (in other words, she didn't create this work in a musical vacuum); but this is her debut release, the point when an artist is probably most likely pay homage to key outside influences. I look forward to continued musical growth in the future as she strives to explore her own voice.

Great music! Takes me back to my Texas Hill Country roots. This is the real thin
As a native Texan who grew up listening to traditional country music, I find Emily Herring’s new CD a welcome breath of fresh country air. It reminds me of past times under live oak trees, listening to music and whiling away the long summer evenings. If you have not heard Emily in person, try to get to a show. I love her vocalizations and country twang.

Her variety is another big plus, with a combination of jazz (“Blues in the Key of C#m”), blues (“Let the Mermaids”), Tejano, and good old country. I really like “No Se Parece a Nada” because it reminds me of my Hill Country childhood. And her originality shines in “Doc Bronner”—how many people write songs about soap? I guess, though, my favorite has to be “Has Country Gone to Hell?” which is a question I often ask myself. Great mix, lyrics, and sound!

Echoing country's past for future generations !
The CD features a mix of her songs and traditionals. Emily's music is non-corporate country with a touch of southern blues and Tejano. Herring pens hard-hitting, honest lyrics. Emily's musical approach is stark and simple yet powerful. Her songs have no bass lines and only a subtle use of drums and on occasion the accordion along with the three key instruments that Emily handles. Herring's voice has a distinctive country twang that works well in the context of her compositions. The sassy 'What Will I Do?' and the edgy 'Has Country Gone to Hell?' were my particular favorites on this eleven-track CD. My Tears Will Be Relieved is authentic and original and Emily Herring is echoing country's past for future generations!
