Emily Danger features songs written by Emily Nicholas and Ryan Nearhoff and arranged by the band. With a versatile, yet progressive sound, they are comfortable in live music, bar, and cabaret theater settings throughout NYC. The band features soaring melodies, complex harmonies, and vulnerable lyrics.
Emily Danger was formed in New York City after a sold out performance at the Duplex Cabaret Theater. The band performed original songs in addition to blues, folk, and soul covers in New York’s oldest cabaret venue. They continue to play throughout the city in various venues (Arlene’s Grocery, Bitter End, National Underground, Fat Baby, K&M, Crescent Lounge, Empty Space Theater) and are currently planning their EP release for the New Year.
Emily Danger combines soulful, honest lyrics with intricate harmonies, beautiful vocals, and unique melodies with a “throw back” style similar to the Troubador greats. They have been compared to Carole King, Joni Mitchell, Antony and the Johnsons, and Rufus Wainwright. The band member’s individual accomplishments range in venues from musical theater, opera, marching bands, and rock bands. This versatility is reflected in their own individual, dark cabaret style.
Presently, the band is enjoying playing throughout New York and California and rehearsing in their home base of Astoria, New York. They enjoy playing original music and covers of blues, folk and rock favorites. Non-music related interests include: books, theater, movies, flying planes (really!), cooking, and making the ones they love happy. (from EmilyDangerBand.com)
