Red Hot Release

EmilyDuring one evening of FMF2006, I ran into Emily Stine and snagged a copy of her latest release Music For My Friends.  Produced and mixed by Justin Thomas (Faktion, Dark New Day), this disc is poised to launch Stine into musical orbit; every track is excellent.  From the poignant "Too Cute To Kill Herself" to the all-out rock of "What If I Punched Your Girlfriend", Stine's killer voice coos, sighs, screams and shouts, harmonizes and rhapsodizes through a host of original tunes and a knock-out cover of Heart's "Magic Man", which she not only pulls off, but manages to make her own.

Though she's a captivating and energetic performer all by her lonesome, Stine's surrounded herself with heavy-hitting musicians for this outing including Thomas, Kyle Cook (matchbox twenty), Brett Hestla (Virgos), Timothy "Timbo" Diduro and others, which results in a solid sound that spills out of the speakers and says "howdy."

I've watched Emily developing her act around Orlando over the past few years and her star is definitely rising.  This release has everything it takes to be the afterburner for her career and I hope the ride lasts as long as possible.
