The Debut EP
After traveling to Italy in 2017 and 2019, the Love Italy EP began production during the spring of 2020 when the world was in lockdown. With historical references woven into Americana-infused rock, this “love letter to Italy” was released on October 21, 2022.
Louis Emory is a rare gem! He combines his passion for Italy with a talent for songwriting to produce beautiful, celebratory and bittersweet anthems that will make us all remember and long for the charms of bella Italia.”
I absolutely love the beautiful music my brother Lou Emory made on Love Italy!”
Thank you for putting beautiful music into the world. No matter how tough the times, never stop bending the world toward beauty.”
About the band
Frontman Louis Emory is a singer/songwriter based in Troy, New York – just an hour north of Woodstock, where The Band – one of his many classic rock influences – wrote their debut album, Music from Big Pink.
More than fifty years later, Emory would have never imagined he’d be working on his debut EP with one of the album’s engineers, renowned producer, audio engineer and mixer Shelly Yakus.
With a small collective of New York musicians — The Reckless Few — the crew fused their individual sounds to deliver Love Italy, a six-track project EP and ode to a place that reignited Emory’s creative flame, released in October 2022.
