EMCravens - Live
is one of the hottest bands to emerge from the vibrant Austin-area music scene over the past year. The group’s unique musical style defies simple description and categorization. “High-energy acoustic funk” captures the essence of EmCravens. However, a typical EmCravens show is full of surprises and will take the audience in unexpected directions long before the evening settles into a consistent and predictable groove. Front and center in the EmCravens sound is Mike Hurrell’s hard driving rhythmic push from his iconic acoustic guitar accompanying his edgy lead vocals. A high caliber rhythm section comprised of Jose Ruales on drums and Michael “Pinky” Russell on electric bass push the groove to a new level while Jim Stair’s classic Hammond B3 and eclectic piano style pull it all together. But that’s not all. A key element in the EmCravens sound is Tom Archer's jazz inspired saxophone laying down the main melody of a song or leading the band on an adventurous jam full of creative improvisation and rhythm changes. Complimenting EmCravens staple of original music is a liberal dose of classic cover material performed EmCravens style.

    Hey buddy nice page!

    Now we need to update saying we found the kit drummer, yet depending on the decision of the Lead guitarist, we may have to search for a new one (new lead guitar that is)... try-outs anyone? Haha

    Sure hope not tho :/

      Thank you! Unfortunately we only have this demo recorded as of now (which doesn't include our bass player). We are in the process of adding a drummer to the group and then plan on beginning to record our first album. We will keep you updated and until then keep enjoying the tunes!
