- ROLLING STONE GERMANY (3/5 STARS)
“Rarely have debut of the current singer-songwriter generation such a sense of catchy songs, original instrumentations, and imaginative texts.”
- MDR KULTUR
“Sam Bodary is just 23, but Hello Emerson sounds like the sublime intersection of the best American indie folk bands.”
“Though the pristinely recorded, fingerpicked folk songs are now filled out with piano, pedal steel, percussion, string sections and horn sections, Bodary is still focused on the little things, no matter how big the song arrangements have become.”
- COLUMBUS ALIVE
Hi hello - my name is Samuel Emerson Bodary. I write songs at home in Columbus, Ohio when I can free myself from an endlessly spooling playlist of podcasts. I record these songs with friends and bandmates.
We’re independent in the US, but we signed to K&F Records for our work in Europe. They’re a charming, earnest, and honest singer-songwriter label based in Dresden, Germany. They’re great partners and greater pals.
Sometimes, people write nice things about our songs. I included those above. But really, this band is mostly an elaborate front so I can single-handedly bring back blogging. Please check out our songbook, blog, unreleased songs, and much more at www.helloemerson.com
