Mayor’s House have just released a touching single and music video titled ‘Emma’ which is now available to stream via Spotify!
Mayor’s House are an alt/rock band based in New York that consists of Emily Morris (guitar/vocals), Eli Meyers (drums/guitar/bass), Jeffrey Allen (bass/ukulele) and Chris St. Pierre (guitar). In their new single ‘Emma’, they tell the story of a young girl in a small town holding a secret close to her heart in fear that if it gets out, she will be judged by the people of her town. Upon listening to the lyrics, listeners will hear that ‘Emma’ is a gay, Canadian woman who is trying to find herself in a strongly conservative town.
Vocalist Emily Morris resonates with the lyrics highly being a queer woman herself. She met a girl called Emma during a festival and was so moved by her story, she decided to use her creativity to help her share her tale with the world. Emily explains;
“Emma’s openness really moved me and when I got home from the festival, I knew I had to write about us meeting. The song is her story intertwined with a little bit with my own. It’s about the immediate bond that queer people have and our mutual understanding and respect for each other. This is the first song I’ve written that really is a gay song — I mean all of my songs are gay songs because that’s part of who I am, but this was the first song I’d written that really openly addressed that part of myself and it was important for me to do that.”
Mayor’s House is a project that was put together by lifelong friends who first began playing music together in High School. They made their debut earlier this year with “Poetry” and will continue to share their stories through beautiful melodies and hard-hitting lyricism.
