Album Notes
Former lead singer for San Francisco-based band Boyfriend, Emily Hickey is now writing and performing as a solo artist in the Bay Area. Emily's first solo release will be the upcoming album, 'Famous Places,' due out in May 2006. Driven to evolve her craft of songwriting and to resolve some personal sh*t, Emily wrote the songs during a concentrated 2 month stint living on the beach in LA, working heavily under the influence of Leon Russell, David Crosby and Aimee Mann. Back in the studio in San Francisco, the songs ramped up and Emily's unique sound emerged in the vein of Natalie Merchant meets the Foo Fighters.

"After writing and performing with a full band, I wanted to return to a more feminine feel. Technically, I wanted to tighten up arrangements and deliver songs that were to the point and emotional."

'Famous Places' is a fresh, thoughtful and accessible debut album that should serve Emily well in her goals to establish herself as a prominent solo artist in the Bay Area and beyond.

Great music from Emily!
Emily's newest CD is fantastic and her best to date. The instrumentation, recording, lyrics, and performances are all excellent. I look forward to the next CD from the very talented Emily Hickey and am glad that I'll have this one to rock out until then.
