Val Emmich’s role is guaranteed to tear at your heart, just like his music.
Val Emmich’s new album, Aide Memoire, is being released on October 11th. It was produced in Omaha in just ten days - recorded in seven, mixed for three. It is very raw and probably the most personal album he’s made so far.
A little bit about the album, from the Kickstarter project that made it all happen -
Right about the same time I started writing songs for this album and formulating ideas about what it was really about, I stumbled on the painting below. It’s a work by my friend Mike Ferrari. I called him up and told him I wanted it to be the cover of my new album, an album that wasn’t even fully written yet. So much about the image clicked with me and I started writing and rewriting with this picture in my mind. Like the boy in the painting, I started going west…backwards in time…inside my memory. I was becoming the boy…the boy I once was. Soon, the band and I will complete the story by traveling west from New Jersey to Omaha to record the album.
I wanted to post one of the tracks as a “teaser,” if you will, but all of the files are too large for Tumblr. So…. you’re just going to have to buy the record and find out for yourself. I promise it’ll be a great investment. Oh, and don’t yell at me if it makes you cry……..
am13er asked: Sorry for the randomness of this question, but I'm bored at work and was going through your site and it just blows my mind the pictures and information you have for Val on there.
How did you find all that? And don't say google, because I know that's some BS because for years I would use that to find new pictures but I would always find the same 20 pictures. But seriously what FBI type of search engine are you using to find all these pictures and videos? lol
Hello Amber. First off, thank you for writing even though it was just because you’re bored :) Also, I’m glad the site blew your mind.
To answer your question, no I don’t use google to find photos. I only use google to find news. I have a list of professional photography sites that (most times) needs to be accessed with a login, which I had to pay. But since Val hasn’t had any professional photos taken, I don’t use those sites anymore. For the last two years, some photographers and even event coordinators/promoters send me photos and news of Val.
Funny you ask. Val asked me the same thing. There’s a set of promotional photos from SXSW he’s never seen and I had to send him. I also sent him the links to the Macy’s(behind scene footage too) and Mountain Dew commercials, because I saw it before him. We had a good laugh that he had to ask me since I find stuff before he does.
Anyway, if you have any pictures you’d like to contribute please send them in! This goes for everybody. The Autograph section is Val’s favorite part of valemmichfans.com
Everyone else: Official release in September.
