ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
One of the most versatile performers in Boston, Emmy Cerra is a singer/songwriter who can rock a stage. Whether she is playing with a full band or alone, her performances transcend expectations of this genre. Emmy's songwriting is one of her trademarks. If you want lyrical music that rocks; you found it.

The Massachusetts native never took part in any formal music training, opting to take her own approach instead. She spent her early years bouncing around from home to home and town to town, eventually setting out on her own at the age of fourteen. She saved up her money, bought a guitar and spent her high school years going to school, working full-time, and playing music every chance she had. When she was nineteen, Emmy started performing live doing cover songs at dive bars in Lowell, MA. She quickly began throwing her original material into the mix. Soon people were singing along to Emmy's songs and cover songs were being played less and less.

Emmy then decided to study a bit of music engineering at a local studio and recorded her first album called Metamorphic. Half of this album was recorded in her bedroom and the other half at the studio where she was studying. When you hear the album, you not only hear the music; you hear her fingers and her lips, you hear her honesty and emotion. The second album entitled Tinderbox is scheduled to release in the Spring of 2009.

Emmy also performs and records with other musicians. One of them is Mel who is an influence to her musically and personally. A native of Stafford, Virginia, Mel Fitzhugh (A.B. Harvard-Radcliffe: Music Theory and Composition) has performed with the Radcliffe Choral Society, Coro Allegro, the Harvard Wind Ensemble, the Village Circle Band, and WACSAC. She studied composition and conducting with Roger Marsh, Jeff Stadelman, Beverly Taylor, James Yannatos and Thomas G. Everett. Melika, who has composed music for film and stage, was a member of Just In Time Composers and Players and is currently a member of eclectic music ensemble Urban Myth and Lucretia's Daggers (a darkwave futuristic metal band), in addition to playing bass recorder with medieval/renaissance ensamble Quilisma Consort, Melika enjoys playing a variety of instruments for folk dance ensembles, including violin/viola, guitar/bass, recorders, flute, dumbek/djembe/kahoun.

Nomasonha Magazine - Dan Moran

EMMY CERRA IS A POWERHOUSE
EMMY CERRA IS A POWERHOUSE. While the 24-year-old Malden, MA singer songwriter has built up a reputation as a dynamic live performer, Cerra's debut CD Metamorphic shows off her powerful voice, vigorous guitar playing and insightful songwriting. Her songs show she's packed a lot of living into her young life. Cerra's performance on Metamorphic is the antithesis of the preprocessed girl pop that we've seen so much of lately.

Campus Report - Megan

Emotional
A raw, unfiltered sound that makes the listener feel as though they are hearing a live show, leaving out that sterile mainstream sound and allowing for true emotion to shine through. It's enough to make any pop-tart run for the hills.

Ginny

Very refreshing
I picked up this album at the show in Lowell, MA and I loved it. I'd recommend it to anyone who digs singer/songwriters...it's a must have.

Leanne

Feel again, for the first time.
Poignant lyrics and a voice that delivers. Emmy reaches deep inside your own heart and speaks the words you can not find on your own.

Jyl

alex

This new CD has everything from cry your eyes out to pull thier eyes out. The lyrics are imaginative and Emmy Cerra's voice pulls emotion right out of you. If this is the first CD, i can't wait to see what she does next.

cool
Emmy Cerra Kicks A@@@@@!!!!!!! Of course she is my cousin, so I have to say that. But no seriously, she is amazing, all she needs now is my killer lead streams layered onto her songs to make them scream like metallica. Emmy is great, and I'm proud to call her my cousin.!!

Jacqui
