James Emmett Band began in 2017 as a live project for brothers and songwriting and production duo James Emmett and Matthew Emmett. The brother's songs have been used in hit TV shows such as “Modern Family” and “Dancing with the Stars”, and new music is available on their latest EP 'Bet Against Me'.
With the release of their debut EP 'Bet Against Me' James and Matthew set about putting together a band that could take the record to the masses. They enlisted the assistance of friend and long time collaborator John Kovacic and Chris Heltzel. The result is a seasoned band of musicians who have been playing music with each other for nearly 20 years, and that never disappoints.
With hundreds of live performances between each member, and a rollicking hometown debut at Cleveland institution The Beachland Ballroom, James Emmett Band brings a breath of fresh air to Indie-Rock and Power-Pop that's delighting fans across Northeastern Ohio and the United States.
