Whether she's moaning out the blues, or belting out criticism for our National politics and Music Row, one thing is certain... Emily Herring will keep you listening. 'Her playing is what seals the deal... a mean Delta feel complete with the slide guitar.'- Jason MacNeil, Pop Matters Magazine 'Take a little delta blues, throw in some Appalachian vocals, some Hank Sr. style guitar strummin' and add some city girl smarts and you got the main ingredients of 'My Tears Will Be Relieved'....It's refreshing to hear something so out of the ordinary for a change.' - J.R. Oliver, Ear Candy Magazine 'Authentic and original and Emily Herring is echoing country's past for future generations!' -Laura Turner Lynch, Kweevak Magzine Emily Herring weaves songs out of a bluesy country fabric that is so much a part of Central Texas. In a sea of sound-alike singer/songwriters, Herring demands to be heard.' -Phil Bailey,Ink 19 Magazine 'Herring is an original voice doing extraordinary things in the simplest terms... A big plate of Texas Country with a side of Delta Blues.'- City Beat, Cincinnati 'Maria Muldaur singing delta blues & country. Dirty and gritty, damned if she don't get it done.'- Hybrid Magazine 'You'll hear hints of Merle Haggard and Lucinda Williams in this tattooed, bespectacled blues-country artist's work. Go on and slide up and down that guitar neck with your bad self, Miss Girl.'-Nancy Ford, Outsmart Magazine 'The songs are minimal and simple, yet they are glorified by their authentic representation of the old-country troubadorian spirit.' -Ryan Hoffer, Shut Eye Records.
