Album Notes
Inspired by her father's guitar playing, Emily Pakes wrote her first song at the age of four. It was an upbeat ditty about a pirate cat, which she banged out on the family's out of tune piano. At nine, she began playing guitar and started writing songs. Her ability to write parodies and other quirky humorous songs set her apart from her classmates and she was often branded a bad influence by pious mothers.

She has since gone on to become a music school drop-out, a traveling one-woman-band, frontwoman, and currently lead guitarist for Cobra Kisses. Often recognized as the girl who plays guitar with her tongue, she is indeed still angering pious mothers everywhere.

The Meaning and the Meantime is her solo debut, a collection of crowd favorites mainly written in her teens. Here we find her accompanied by her band, coaxing out pop rock that occationally spurs a laugh; but more importantly, urges a second listen...

"Her guitar-playing had me staring at her hands during her solos!" Eric Himan, musician, founder of ThumbCrown Records.

"I have to admit, I literally burnt a hole in this album from listening to it over & over again! It ROCKS." Heather Corcoran, CoffeeHouseTour & QueerPlanet columnist.

IF YOU HAVEN'T PLUGGED IN HER WICKED MUSIQU, IT'S ABOUT TIME YOU DID! This cd is a witty combination of gorgeous vocals, humorously sad'n'seductive lyrics and creative musical talent. >raises glass< Here's to an artist who grabbed life by the balls and produced a one amazing baby!
