An Insider's Account of The Band You Know as Emery.

 

When Aaron Lunsford set out to write a book about his friends in the internationally known band Emery, his goal was to tell the story of how the band got started. In other words - a story not so different from what you could read in a standard band profile on a mediocre music blog. Quickly, Aaron realized that the real story was in the personalities of the band members. Even more than their music, Emery has been shaped and sustained by the fascinating individuals that have written and performed the music since their formation in 2001. Aaron's unique role in the world of Emery has spanned from fellow musician and label mate with his band, As Cities Burn - to tour manager and "inner circle" friend in the world of the screamo legends. Ditch the articles with the "how did you get your band name" questions and dive deep into this examination of the men who formed Emery, The Unlikely Masters of Rock.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Aaron first met Emery in the parking lot of an all ages venue in El Cajon, CA in 2004. Emery didn't pay him much attention. But, Aaron's band - As Cities Burn - did some stuff and ended up touring frequently with Emery. The rest is history. This is Aaron's second book to be published with BCWORDS. His debut release, "BACKSTAGE: HOW I ALMOST GOT RICH PLAYING DRUMS IN A CHRISTIAN HARDCORE BAND" was published in 2015 and chronicled the early years of As Cities Burn. After years of tour managing Emery and enduring all the suffering that comes with that task, Aaron relished the opportunity to wield the power of the pen and write about his friends. He resides in Nashville, TN with his wife and three children - Magnolia Ann, Buddy James, and Hank Aaron - where he continues to exist as a washed up drummer and is currently launching a BBQ concession trailer. Drinking Budweiser and watching baseball are his only known hobbies.
