The product of a suburban New England upbringing, where he discovered the joys of balanced breakfasts and quiet nights spent under the stars, Emmett McCleary writes earnest music for earnest people. Informed by 60s and 70s pop, his songwriting is direct without being obvious, and at its best recalls songsmiths like Neil Finn and Elliott Smith. His debut LP There's a Better Something was recorded at home between semesters at Montréal's McGill University; the album will be self-released via Bandcamp on May 12. Emmett makes a mean Bolognese sauce and does not smoke cigarettes.

None right now - stay tuned for the fall!
