California musician, songwriter and student of Ethnomusicology at Lewis & Clark , Julia Crager found enough inspiration from Emily's approach to music and life that she used the late jazz guitarist in her dissertation -
Emily Remler: Her Artistic Philosophy and Music, focusing on Emily's view of music and the business of making it in a male dominated industry as well as the techniques and fundamentals that made Remler's playing unique. While Crager's sound is more rooted in the purity of alternative acoustic, closer to the styles of Ani Difranco or Kaki King, she is still effected by the "thoughtful way" Emily played, and her ideas on music. Julia's favorite Em song, "probably Nunca Mais and every song on Catwalk.." Learn more about Julia's story and music by visiting JuliaLucille.com or her Myspace page.
