Album Notes
Emily Kaitz, a Fayetteville Arkansas resident since January 1998, cut her musical teeth in the vibrant club scene of Austin, Texas where she lived for 21 years and played "every place that had original acoustic music and didn't pay enough." An irreverent and often hilarious songwriter, she has a national cult following and has had songs recorded by Trout Fishing In America, The Austin Lounge Lizards, and Chet Atkins, among others. Trout Fishing's Ezra Idlet said, "Emily Kaitz is a jewel of a songwriter who can turn everyday life into extraordinary art."

"Yuppie Scum" is perhaps her most popular album and features songs about playing Scrabble, being from the planet Neptune, delighting in long distance relationships which work better from afar than close-up, and other glimpses of life through her trademark warped perspective. The title song is about a bluegrass singer who drives a Mercedes and has a law degree.

Emily tours regionally and nationally in a very sporadic way, based primarily on which friends of hers she feels like visiting. She performs as a solo singer-songwriter and also occasionally with her boyfriend Drew Pierce, a banjo player who actually does have a law degree and used to own a Mercedes (total coincidence).

Yuppie Scum is worth listening to
I liked this CD very much. I listened to it many times to savor all the vocabulary in the lyrics. I bought it because I received Living the Wrong Way as a gift and wanted to hear more of Emily Kaitz.

Emily has fantastic lyrics and tunes. My favorite song here is The Scrabble Song.
