Cindy Emch was all geared up to perform at SXSW this year and head out on tour with Jack Garton and the Demon Squadron. Then all hell broke loose. The self-proclaimed queer country singer says that once everything had sunk in, she was sad and disappointed about it all. “About the cancellations for April, then May — my album release show especially, then the National Queer Arts Festival in June — over a year of planning was just disappearing over emails as the pandemic numbers kept climbing,” she says.
She’ll be performing a lunch hour set as part of the Sweetheart PR showcases at 11 a.m. on Thursday at facebook.com/sweetheartpub or facebook.com/babyrobotmedia, while her new album, The Chaser, is set for a May 15 release. Preview the forthcoming record on Secret Emchy Society’s Bandcamp page.
