Singer-songwriter and guitarist Louis Emory writes original, classic rock inspired rock ‘n roll with a small collective of Upstate New York musicians—The Reckless Few—fusing their individual sounds with his vision. Emory’s songwriting is inspired by the “greats” – The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, The Band, The Beach Boys, Frank Sinatra, Motown, Muscle Shoals, and countless others. He’s been writing and recording original rock ‘n roll with a diverse family of local musicians for over 20 years. Not a traditional band, the magic happens in the recording studio—as Emory’s songs are filtered through the creative lenses of bassist Kate Sgroi (Mirk), drummer Bob Boyer (New York Players), pianist Tim Lynch (Bicycle Mary), guitarist Matt Dobbs, and singer Georgia Jones, who adds killer backing vocals to select tracks. The band’s debut EP, “New York Summer”, was released in 2019 and the “Sunshine and Love” single—written while floating in a boat on the Long Island Sound—was released in 2020. After traveling to Italy in 2017 and 2019, Emory’s next project—the “Love Italy” EP—is currently in production. With historical references woven into Americana-infused rock, this “love letter to Italy” is due to be released later this year.
