Album Notes
We all find ourselves lost in the weeds at some point. But it is our purpose to recognize that the same weeds can also be beautiful wildflowers given the right conditions and perspective. Weeds & Wildflowers is the growth of artistry through this practice of perspective.

"Weeds & Wildflowers" was produced by Emily’s longtime collaborator Ryan Avery, who also plays violin on many of the album’s tracks. The CD also includes a noteworthy guestlist of prolific San Francisco Bay Area artists, including Billboard-charting multi-instrumentalist Marty Atkinson, noted local sound guru and bass player, the Toledo Terror, Jeff Drudge, as well as members of local gypsy jazz collective Americano Social Club (Joe Kyle Jr., Michael Zisman, and Jason Vanderford).

Up close and personal
Emily Zisman's latest effort, Weeds and Wildflowers, shows a singer-songwriter who continues to grow, evolve, and hone her craft. Deeply personal and obviously wrung from the heart, Zisman's lyrics often go down a emotional road, but without ever losing her trademark sense of fun and mischief. Her voice evokes the best qualities of American female singers from the '30s and '40s - qualities that make me want to drink whiskey from a mason jar and find some trouble.


Second helpings are even better
I loved Emily Zisman's first cd, Naked Day Alone, but this second helping of her music is even better. Great voice, great lyrics, great music and great musicians all make for fabulous listening. Give the tracks above a listen and I'm sure you will want this music in your personal library. If you don't already have her first cd, treat yourself to both. You'll be glad you did.


A unique experience; dreamy while authentic
Emily Zisman's Weeds & Wildflowers is a Saturday morning staple in my house. Her songs are a nostalgic nod to college years in Montana where people love earthy, folky singer-songwriters; they are a bevy of creative, clever lyrics that tell my soul I'm alive and in love with life. Her voice sings with different hues, yet is crisp and forthcoming, and the instrumentation is lovely. Highly recommend if you want to feel yourself dreaming of life's moments.
