While traveling in Italy last month, Louis Emory and his wife/creative partner, Raeanne Wright-Emory, sat down for an interview with Amelia Hood from The Florentine – an English news magazine in Florence with both printed and digital monthly editions.
To be frank, The Florentine is kind-of a big deal – they’re the biggest publication to feature the Love Italy EP, with over 75K followers on Instagram and over 120K followers on Facebook; Furthermore, the magazine is distributed for free from 150+ points in Florence with a circulation of 10K copies per month and more than 1K subscribers worldwide. To say that Louis was a little bit nervous is an understatement! Raeanne joined him to help answer questions and ease his nerves – and it was only fitting, since the interview happened on October 13th, the couple’s 3rd wedding anniversary!
So, we’re excited to announce that the interview, titled “Louis Emory and The Reckless Few release their first album ‘Love Italy,’” went live today on the front page of The Florentine’s website in the Arts + Culture section. This Friday, the printed version will be available to purchase in PDF format, or – if you’re lucky enough to be in the Florence area – available to pick up for free in print. (Note: You can also subscribe, even from overseas, and have the printed magazine shipped to you.)
How perfect that the Love Italy EP is featured in a prominent Florentine publication, as half of the songs on the EP are either about Florence, or set in Florence! You can check out those tracks and music videos here:
