Album Notes
Granddaughter of a trucker and a coal miner, Emily Zuzik hails from the Southwestern Pennsylvania town of Greensburg. She gave her first public performance singing Dolly Parton's "9 to 5" to her fifth grade religion class in Catholic school. By eighth grade, she was performing original work in front of her school. And the rest, as we say, is history...

Emily is a proud Epiphone Guitars endorsed artist and appears in its internationally distributed 2005 calendar along side such other great women artists as Joan Osborn and Gretchen Wilson.

Emily released her debut solo album, The Way it's Got to Be, in February 2003, receiving praises from NYC's The Village Voice and Time Out, as well as Performing Songwriter Magazine's Top DIY Picks, November 2003.

Emily is also a finalist in the JANE Magazine Readers 2004 CD, and appears on the “Greatest Hits you’ve never Heard,” a UK compilation which raises funds for breast cancer research. Emily has been featured as an IGNforMen.com's Babe of the Day and played both the 2003 Women in Rock showcase at SXSW and as well as its documentary produced by Austin Music Network.

The video for Emily’s song “Try a New Line on Me” (from her band, Sexfresh’s “The Fainting Room”) aired nationally on the Trio network in April 2003.

She has shared shows with such performers as Norah Jones, Jolie Holland and 80’s teen pop icon Tiffany.

Currently, Emily is releasing her second album, You Had Me at Goodbye, produced with Joshua Kessler at Bushwick Studio (The Bravery) and touring the UK in fall 2006.

You can also see Emily, nationally, as the Bond girl on the cover of the Penguin Paperback Reissue of James Bond’s Thunderball.

Great Indie Gem Revealed
Friends have appointed me 'revealer of the underground' so I'm always on the hunt for new indie music. I scour the internet, keep tabs on XM radio, and hang with the FM stations who know what's up. I am extremely picky in my search. Having past been a producer, engineer, and recording artist with a little success of my own, I listen to everything with a very critical ear. I place importance not only on the quality of song writing; style, energy, and allure of the performance; but also in the creative vision of the musical arrangements. I don't stop there either because I want solid production values too! Covering all these bases is quite the challenge for a "do it yourself" artist.>>

I'm happy to report that Emily Zuzik's new release, "You Had Me at Goodbye", authoritatively kicked the daylights out of my criteria. This is a fully realized project, and easily one the best indie CDs I've ever bought. Joshua Kessler works with Zuzik in the producer role and it's a fortunate pairing. The rich sonic atmosphere they have created lilts through several moods. To comment on overall style, think soul/funk/rock hybrid, happily tipping to rock energy peaks, filtered through the most delicious psychedelic twinge.>>

Zuzik's voice is a high in itself. Uniquely expressive, with smoldering, sultry, sex appeal. Since that's the way she sounds, I suppose it doesn't hurt that she has some modeling cred under her belt as well. Not going for vocal acrobatics or screaming, you are being sung to by an evolved woman. But don't get too comfortable, she will smack some attitude out on you!>>

One of the most surprising things about the record is the songwriting. Zuzik does have some 'acoustic guitar indie girl' background, yet it is not the obvious root on this effort. She is currently in a very creative space and the aural imagery is well developed. She soars, floats, and stings, equally well. Examining the entanglements of romantic disappointment (long one of my favorite rock and roll topics) she strikes a nice balance between the literary and poetic, setting the scene yet letting the listener paint plenty of the colors themselves. The lyrics have a pleasing introspective feel. I now have a serious addiction problem with the song "Subtraction". "Potential", "True to Yourself", and "It Don't Matter to Jesus" are also good places to start.>>

Naturally, there are things I could pick on if I wanted to go that route. Had Zuzik the production budget of Virgin, Sony, or any of the other blood-sucking conglomerates, she could have spent countless studio hours tracking, mixing, and mastering. But on an artistic and technical level, this is a proud achievement for an indie record. Any inconsistencies are superceded by the overall effect. This release is a unique and beautiful soundscape that is addictive and gives up new things on repeated listening.>>

Oh, and by the way, this music can get incendiary played loud on a hot system! Definitely five stars.
