“I am so proud of Emily Musolino. It was an honor to mentor her and produce her “self titled” full length CD. These days it is rare to find a lyricist with her depth and understanding of the songwriting craft. Emily combines Jazz sensibility with raw elements of the blues. Her voice echoes the passion and lawlessness of Etta James and Janis Joplin. I know this is saying a lot and additionally placing her under impossible pressure. I trust my ears and heart and I can promise you her talent is keenly honed with the clarity of a primal scream! http://emilymusolino.bandcamp.com/ check it out and hear what I’m talking about.”
