Emily Spray, singer-songwriter, seamstress, shoemaker and writer has been working away under the radar for years. Yes, Laura Cantrell covered Emily's song '14th Street' and Bob Dylan picked it for and introduced it on his radio show, but for an artist of such talent to languish in relative obscurity makes me scratch my head.
So it is with joy that I share the news that another of Emily's songs, WILD RIDE, which she wrote and sings and which Matt Keating produced, recorded and played the instruments on, is going to be featured in the new Bill Murray film ROCK THE KASBAH.
Emily, her husband Matt Keating and their daughter Greta Keating have been extremely generous in letting us use their songs in many episodes. If you want to hear a little bit of WILD RIDE, it's over the end credits in the Louise Log Chair Wrestling episode.
I hope this is just the beginning of a tidal wave of recognition for all of you.
Congratulations Emily! Congratulations Matt!
