Emily Kaitz has been writing songs for over 40 years and performing them for over 30 years. She performs on guitar, bass and occasionally piano, lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas where she also works as a piano tuner and gardener, and tours regionally, both as a solo act or with accompaniasts and ensembles including her boyfriend Drew Pierce on banjo/pedal steel, her Fayetteville friend Dennis Collins on guitar, her swing trio Outside The Lines with Ed Nicholson (guitar) and Stan D'Aubin (mandolin), or her Austin, Texas band featuring Jeanne Kyser (fiddle), Melinda Brooks (mandolin & banjo) and Sean Kelly (bass). Emily also occasionally plays bass with songwriter Effron White, folk/bluegrass band The Hogeye Ramblers, and bluegrass band Crooked Creek.
She is known for her humorous, quirky songs such as "Don't Gossip in the Sauna," "Shallow End of the Gene Pool," "Susie Rosen's Nose," "Banjo Players in Heaven," and "The Day the Bass Players Took Over the World," some of which have been recorded by other artists such as Chet Atkins, Trout Fishing in America, the Austin Lounge Lizards, Mary Catherine Reynolds, and Alice Gerrard. Emily also has numerous CDs of her own which are available here at cdbaby.
