“Mother May I” is a very personal song about how I feel about the worst day of my life last year as I was hit with a sudden separation from that joyful child that I once was. My band came together for some playful tantrums, a few explosives and a pile of childhood memories. This was our first video that included the entire band and our second video created by videographer Cody Mausolf of The Liquor Portal.” – EMMA GARELL

Emma Garell uses her singing voice to speak for her. She lulls the listener into a sense of whispered magic, then out of nowhere, she belts with the power of the greats. Having a wide range of vocal gifts, she will surprise you with her array of musical styling all within the power of a haunting voice. Emma is backed by Dylan Lawson on guitar, Sammy P. Stiles on bass and Cody Mausolf on drums.

“If Karen O of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs was a bar fly in a gritty bar, singing on a Saturday night, you might come close to Emma Garell. One could see her paying homage to the song Black Velvet in leather and then fist-pumping the crowd to her Black Sabbath roots. The woman has a smooth growl with a punk’tude and “Destination Anaheim” is only the beginning.”
