About emchy

Hello! I'm Cindy - it's good to meet you. Thanks for considering becoming my Patron.
I'm a queer country musician making songs about good friends and hard times. It's important to me to tell the stories about love, friends, and how we as humans connect to each other and share experience. I believe that folks in this world are mostly good and want to create art that helps us all come together instead of being divided.

Here's the official story of my music:
The Secret Emchy Society plays foot stompin' heart breakin' cowboy songs about good friends and hard times. Frontwoman Cindy Emch has been recently dubbed "the First Lady of Queer Country" by the Huffington Post and listed as one of the "Ten Queer Country Artists Music Fans Should Know" from TheBoot.com.

I write music in the tradition of old country and americana. Honoring the work of artists like Johnny Cash, Leadbelly, and Hazel Dickens. It's raw, emotional, honest, and 100% gritty and real. I'll be using your support to give me some breathing room as an artist to experiment and take more risks. I'll also be using your support and investment to push me to write more songs with the intention of sharing them with you. I plan to share multiple songs, song drafts, performances, etc. monthly and give you a window into my songwriting process and how my bands take these songs and evolve / arrange them.
