Mayor’s House stand in solidarity with “Emma” on new single


Having made their debut in February with “Poetry,” Mayor’s House feel like old friends that we have known much longer than a few months. Maybe that’s because they are lifelong friends themselves. The alt-rock band, consisting of Emily Morris (guitar and vocals), Eli Meyers (drums, guitar, and bass), Jeffrey Allen (bass and ukulele), and Chris St. Pierre (guitar), started making music in high school, creating original songs like “Poetry.” The single showcased their fierce songwriting skills and ability to place listeners in unique settings, making it a solid introduction. With their new single, “Emma,” Mayor’s House continue to let people in, making connections in the process.

On “Emma,” Mayor’s House give us a heartfelt ballad that touches on the bonds that run in the queer community. Its messages of support and understanding, along with the lively vocals and anthemic choruses, create a comforting space that reminds others out there that they are not alone. Empathetically, Emily sings, “Emma had a secret / A secret that she tried to hide / The more that she hid, the more she fit in” and “I know what it’s like / To grow up in fright / So Emma, you’re never alone,” standing in solidarity. You can check it out below.

The song is inspired by a young woman named Emma, who Mayor’s House met at a festival last year. About the impact of that moment, 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 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.”

You can listen to “Emma” on platforms like Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud.
