Canadian blues singer Miss Emily has released a poignant single, “The Medicine,” inspired by the people around her who succumbed to their addictions, and how it affected their families and the children left behind.
“The main goal of this song is to help families affected by this epidemic feel like they aren’t alone,” said Miss Emily. “Their stories and the stories of their loved ones are important and that the current opioid abuse crisis is one worth drawing more attention to.”
“The Medicine” was recorded at Noble Street Studio in Toronto with multiple Grammy and Juno award winning producer Gavin Brown. It features Chris Caddell (Big Wreck, Colin James) on guitar, Marc Rogers (Susan Tedeschi, The Philosopher Kings) on bass, Gavin Brown on drums and Matt Kelly (City and Colour) on keys.
Miss Emily was the 2019 Winner of the Maple Blues ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’, ‘New Artist of the Year’ and the Sapphire Award for Blues Video of the Year (Canadian Blues Awards). Miss Emily is currently nominated for ‘Female Vocalist of the Year’ for the 2021 Maple Blues Awards.
“The Medicine” is the first song to be released from Emily’s upcoming album, to be released in October 2022.
