Emily Burgess rode her first album, Are We In Love?, to the New Artist MBA last year and was busily recording this one at the time of the awards. She describes Never-Ending Fling as ‘catchy hooks, killer grooves, explosive 3-part harmony and there may be a few guitar solos in there too’. This new one should please the many fans of Are We In Love?. Marcus Browne on drums this time out along with those harmony vocals and Rico Browne is on bass and harmony vocals. Ryan Weber and Sam Weber are here again with Ryan writing or co-writing five songs. Jimmy Bowskill guests as well. The opener, “Black and Blue” has a great groove and a rather nice guitar solo from Emily. Both apply to “Gift of the Gab (I Need Your Love)” as well. Ryan Weber’s baritone guitar underlies “Right Where We Belong”, an original by Emily who again rips off a concise solo. A nicely stripped-down arrangement graces “I Won’t Be Getting Played”. The Webers wrote “Excuses” which rocks along very well indeed and has a radio friendly melody. Emily wrote the country-ish “My Heart’s Lone Ranger” with Jimmy Bowskill guesting on lap steel. The Webers also wrote “The Lion and the Lamb” but Emily generously hands the lead vocal to Marcus Browne. The CD Release Party was at the Dakota on November 10th and you should go to www.theemburys.com for more info. You will of course have caught Emily playing lead guitar at the Women’s Blues Revue.
