Making a Scene Presents an Interview with Emily Zuzik
Emily Zuzik is an L.A.-based Americana singer-songwriter who has planted her musical roots in a unique eclectic blend of alt-country, modern, rhythm & blues and rock music. She brings to her songs a woman’s vulnerability and strength in the tradition of Patsy Cline and Madonna. She is currently celebrating the release of her latest solo album Torch & Trouble produced by Ted Russell Kamp.
As a singer-songwriter, her music captures the film-noir essence of Los Angeles’ haunted past infused with the soul of the Memphis Stax sound. Her songs compel and engage as they call to mind her musical kinship with Carole King and Rickie Lee Jones. Her voice is warm as she seduces the listener in a way reminiscent of Sheryl Crow and Liz Phair.
Her newly released album, Torch & Trouble, is a well-focused blend of earthy singer-songwriter centered Americana music. The thread of meaning that runs through the ten-song collection is hope, redemption & faith in love even as we face daily conflict, change and challenge.
