Led by folk-punk, singer-songwriter Cindy Emch, the Secret Emchy Society “play foot-stompin’, heart-breakin’ Americana music about good friends and hard times. Their music is deeply personal, fearless and passionate and pairs well with both whiskey and hitting the streets. Sweet and warm, with just enough of a burn. Cindy’s voice is by turns low and sultry, bluesy and ballsy.”

On their recently released debut album The Stars Fall Shooting Into Twangsville, the Secret Emchy Society echo a variety of vintage styles, from rowdy honky tonk to vulnerable ballads, with broad swaths of zydeco, country and cabaret tossed in for good measure that will appeal to fans of June Carter Cash, Lydia Loveless, Neko Case, Shovels & Rope, Dolly Parton and Porter Wagoner.

With accolades pouring in from No Depression, Now This Sound Is Brave, The Alternate Root, Yahoo! Music and Huffington Post, country music powerhouse The Boot recently recognized the Secret Emchy Society as one of the Top 10 Queer Country Artists Country Music Fans Should Know. See the whole list at The Boot.

It’s only an Anniversary to me but one I cherish infinitely. Three years ago you burst into my life and although I try to take it in stride, it’s been an exhilarating ride.
Since you arrived, I see life with ocean-size eyes. I’m constantly inspired. The flames sizzling in the astral plane emancipate every page. Seconds into minutes, weeks into one more weekends, intergalactic excursions and intracranial adventures empower every hour. It’s been a mesmerizing one thousand and ninety six days. I look forward to thousands more amour.
When a moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie
That's amore
When the world seems to shine like you've had too much wine
That's amore
Bells will ring ting-a-ling-a-ling, ting-a-ling-a-ling
And you'll sing "Running with the wild things"
Hearts will play tippy-tippy-tay, tippy-tippy-tay
Like a gay tarantella
When the stars make you drool just like a pasta fazool
That's amore
When you dance down the street with a set of eyes at your feet
You’re in love
When you walk in a dream and you know you're not dreaming alone
That's amore
